Hi,

The course is more about the recording music & sounds aspect and not as much about actually making music. That being said the course is quite broad and covers quite a lot of topics including some lectures on music theory and some lectures and assignments dedicated to making electronic music.

We first learn about sound theory and other introductory material about microphones and speakers, electronics etc. We also learn how to record musicians at first using a small console but then moving on to large format consoles, we learn how to mix songs, how to make sound for film including foley recording and 5.1 mixing, we learn about live sound.

There has actually been a few improvements recently based on student feedback so it is slightly different since I finished my first year, I believe there is a bit more teaching on mixing techniques and mastering now, and some other things as well but I am not entirely sure about all of the new things. I hope this is helpful.

If you want the most up-to-date version of what the course entails you can view that here http://www.sae.edu/gbr/babsc-hons-audio-production. If you have any questions about the content on there I will be more than happy to respond

Thanks

Life only has the purpose of which we assign to it.

That sounds really cool - I've always been interested in how music is recorded and how sound effects, dialogues and special audio effects are added to movies. What you're studying sounds very interesting and a worthwhile subject. I expect the pool of people who have knowledge in this area is relatively small, which is good for you because it means your field is sort of unique in a way.

What job would you like to do after you graduate? Have you given it much thought?
Thanks for taking the time to explain about your course in detail I hope you enjoy the second year just as much as the first and that you do really well!

Hey,
Yeah, I think the pool of people who have knowledge in this are is quite small but it is also very competitive. I expect to have to go through a voluntary phase at least at first to prove myself before I am likely to be paid by someone.

In terms of what I personally plan on doing after graduating; I have been doing some live sound recently, I have enjoyed that so may see where that leads. I am also intrigued by the role of a producer/sound engineer (I think in todays competitive industry the two often go hand-in-hand). I am not really committed to any plan at the moment, I’m still experimenting with potential careers.
