    Cool...I've just finished my BTEC in Music Tech. at Westminster Kingsway College, the course was good because it gives you the practical hands on experience and I'm going to Herts Uni to study Music, Commercial Compostion and Technology this month.

    Never heard of a technologist before...

    I did a BND for Music tech and I'm studying it now at Huddersfield. As practical as the BND was, don't forget that actual experience is a lot better!

    My goal for this (and the final year of my degree, and placement year obviously) year is to get some experience in a local studio and venue.

    True.. actual experience is better ... but in response to Fletch's post..i was drawing a comparison between studying Music Tech as an A-Level as opposed to a BTEC which is more practical (than an A-Level).

    There are also differences between the Music Tech. that we do (which is geared towards composing/arranging/producing music using computers and digital recorders) and courses like Sound Engineering (which is more concerned with the equipment) and the Sound for performing arts course (which is more about operating the board for theatre/studio sound). As you say the BTEC is a more practical option. We have 4 colleges very close together here so we all have to do different courses so that we're not fighting for the same students.

    Hiya champ. To be honest, I dont havce a clue, I dont recall seeing anyone fromt he music course at manchester. However, I should envisage that to get yoru portfolio there by the 1st October would help you even if you dont need to have it there by then. I would say, be safge and do that, since it can only help your application. Your best bet though is to ring them up - they are there to help after all.
    Good luck x

    Stick a post it note or two around. Or a hundred. If you indoctrinate yourself to practice keyboard you'll be fine =D

    If you can condition yourself to practice, then you're doing better than I am

    It's sooo easy to just sit down and play for 45 minutes without doing anything remotely like 'practicing'.
