SCQF Level 5
Music & Sound Production

Course Overview

This practical course will give you the opportunity to take your songwriting to the next level and develop your identity and presence as an artist on the global stage. With a focus on developing and releasing your original material and brand the course will draw on aspects of songwriting, audio production and the music business to guide you through the commercial release process and help promote your future success.

What You Will Learn

Commercial viability, developing your own style, audio production, promotion and distribution are becoming frequently more bundled into the term ‘songwriter’ or ‘self-releasing artist’.  This course will guide you through that journey. Based around commercial songwriting workshops, creative peer-led seminars, studio sessions and promotion and distribution strategies, the aim of the course are for students to have self-released a developed and (hopefully) viable piece of original work.

Students will receive and Edinburgh College certificate and will be encouraged to progress onto a range of our other industry accredited courses to further develop their skills and future opportunities in the Creative Industries.
