Music production course (help!)Watch
Music theory was taught to all music students at college level when I was that age, really it’s stuff you can easily find online and learn yourself. You have a year, not to mention more reason to be at home where you can study since covid has social restrictions.
You will benefit from learning it on a personal level as it gives you a deeper understanding of the language that music is. What you’re doing right now is either trial and error or educated guesses based on songs you’ve already heard, whilst that can be inspiring, I find it can also be quite hollow when you get to a section where it just doesn’t feel as powerful as you want. Knowing theory is basically like being a handyman who has to borrow whatever tools are available on-site because you didn’t bring your own kit.
right okay so I want to study music production at uni next year, I can produce instrumentals and beats, sing, and write lyrics but struggle with the theory side of it and don’t actually have any grades for any instruments (I can use a midi keyboard but know no theory on it). Will I be able to complete a music production course starting like this? Will it be taught within the course? I already make decent music on my own but am looking to further my knowledge. I don't wanna pay 9 grand to be painfully under qualified when I get there
You can check the studios and equipment in the virtual campus tour. There are four campuses in the UK: London, Liverpool, Glasgow and Oxford.
I hope this helps,
