What are the best universities for a Popular Music DegreeWatch
Ravensbourne have recently merged their music course and sound design course so their students are learning a wide range of audio techniques across music and sound design fields, with the option to also specialise either in more of the music side or sound design side. Yeah, I've learnt music production and I'd say I'm pretty skilled, but he's learnt everything I know and more, including music and sound for media (film, TV, games and interactive media), studio & location recording, editing and post-production, music and sound for VR and live multimedia, emerging technologies such as 3D Audio, he's even had the opportunity to do sound art lmao. They're pretty digital-based but really accomodating for musicians, there's loads of drummers, guitarists, bassists, vocalists, even harpists who have studied tehre and expanded these skills as well as their digital ones.
(He definitely made the right choice opting to do a music course tailored towards creative industries, rather than just doing a music production course... because he's now hugely more employable than I am... he's going straight into the industry. Luckily I'm not pursuing a career in music as I've found my personal interest lies elsewhere (through no fault of BIMM's).
But if I didn't have another career in mind I'd be screwed... because yes I've been taught music production but I wasn't taught much that made me stand out from any other person studying music production either at BIMM or any other uni teaching a similar course to mine.)
Hope this helps!
