Digital Music Production - Which course and reviews

I'm currently in my 2nd year at the BIMM Birmingham studying digital music production. I use FL studio and love creating and recreating music of all different genres. Please could you share your experiences of courses and universities offering this at degree level as I want to make the right choice first time and be informed (the good and bad) of all. Many thanks

It's a newish area, many universities offer a more generalised music production course but some are starting to offer a specialisation but the courses may be pretty new which means you may not get many reviews.

But I'd recommend looking at

Guildhall School of Music & Drama (Electronic & Produced Music)
Leeds Conservatoire (Electronic Music Production)
Waterbear Brighton or Sheffield (Electronic Music)
Southampton Solent (Digital Music)
Brighton (Digital Music & Sound Arts)
Hi there!

If you're looking for Production, we have a fantastic Music & Music production course at Hope! In this course, students perform, compose, produce, and engage with music across a broad range of topics and genres, including popular, classical, jazz, electronic, and world music traditions. For more course info, visit our website:

We're also a Steinway school, with two grand pianos, and Steinways available in all of our practice rooms for students' use. If you're a singer-songwriter we have recording and mixing facilities for you to release your own music, and we're currently in the process of setting up a record label for students to release music through!

There's plenty of opportunities to get involved and perform on campus, from our regular open mics, to the Angel Field Arts Festival, and our International Jazz Festival! We're also home to the European Opera Centre and Milapfest, an Indian arts company!

Our Creative Campus where you'd be based is a 10 minute walk from the city centre, and 10 minutes from the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. You'd also be a 15 minute walk from the Cavern Quarter where the Beatles famously got their start!

We have some open days coming up in the next two months- I'd recommend visiting us, chatting to our academics & seeing if we're the right fit for you!

Best of luck for the future!
