MA Music Production

MA Music Production

On this course you will examine the relationship between music and the wider cultural, social and economic circumstances of its production and reception. We encourage you to focus on contemporary ideas and developments emerging within the industry. Interdisciplinary learning is encouraged and you will consider complex questions about creativity and knowledge alongside students from other practice-led master's programmes.

You will undertake two taught modules in the first semester, which will help you to develop the necessary frameworks of thought enabling you to progress to the final stage of the programme. This specialist knowledge will inform your final independent music production focused on the area of music production which most excites you.

Our Music Production Team has a high profile within academic publishing in this subject area, most notably with the Perspectives on Music Production series published by Routledge.
