The course team has close ties to the local and national music scene, enabling you to undertake a live brief of your choosing from an external client, negotiated with a tutor.
We also have a programme of guest lectures from the industry, with recent speakers including:
- Mike Moran – composer and musician
- Trevor Horn – Grammy-winning producer
- Rob Da Bank – DJ and festival organiser
- Gary Langhan – Sound engineer on The War of The Worlds
- Guthrie Govan – world-famous guitarist.
Outside lectures, seminars and workshops, students are encouraged to engage with Southampton’s music scene. By promoting or performing their own shows and creating their own productions, students can cultivate their talent and expand their understanding of production, arrangement, composition and stagecraft.
