  • Composition
  • Multitrack recording
  • Sampling
  • Sequencing
  • Use of Apple Macs, LOGIC Studio and Pro Tools software
Working in the recording studio

Working in the recording studio

This is a highly practical course and embraces a wide range of popular music styles and you will be able to compose and record your own music in our purpose built state of the art recording studios.

This qualification makes up one of your subject choices of your Study Programme. You can also study Popular Music or Music alongside this course if you wish to.

Huish also offers an Extended Diploma in Popular Music and Music Production.

We were encouraged to make full use of the technology and I found that I quickly came to terms with the software and hardware of recording and sequencing. This will be very useful to me in my future career in music recording engineering and production (via the prestigious Tonnmeister course).
