This module delivers the expertise to do both, and illuminates the processes, both historical and contemporary, through which scores are prepared. Students are trained to work with scholarly resources and all manner of music sources, from manuscripts to digitized autographs to early recordings. Skills are absorbed in lectures and workshops that explore different editorial methods, and the rationales and biases that undergird them.
You will learn through being involved in stimulating live briefs relevant to current 21st century music industry practices. With an emphasis on the production of original work, you will learn how to collaborate with your fellow students in performance, songwriting and production, whilst acquiring a detailed knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the contemporary music business. This module will introduce you to a model for producing a business/strategic plan for an arts organisation. This is the key document required by all arts organisations, particularly those within the subsidised sector and those wishing to join it. It is currently common practice to write a business plan that considers a three-year period, which is then rolled forward on an annual basis. It is a document that should have an external and internal purpose (i.e. be suitable to send to funders, businesses, banks etc), in addition to being a reference point for staff, and board members.
Introduction To The Creative Sound & Music Degree At Hca
We nurture students to develop their own voice and practice and then connect them to the ever expanding opportunities in the world. We cannot guarantee a placement with any specific arts organisation, but we take you through a supportive process to gain a placement with an appropriate arts organisation. In this module you will have the opportunity to discuss with senior members of the cultural management profession how policies are reflected in their organisations. To deliver this module the programme works with some of our ‘Partners in Learning’. Although professional management practice is a major element of the programme, the ‘creative arts event’ is the starting point for all teaching.

The ability to conduct this research in an institution that encourages lateral thinking and reaching beyond the bounds of societal structures, was truly empowering. The assessment for the specialist music component will be as given in the individual module descriptions. From asking current students about their experiences to immersing yourself in campus and accommodation tours, you will leave knowing if this place is for you. More information on mental health and wellbeing support is also provided in our Chief Executive and Principal’s recentopen letter on the Ukraine crisis. If you prefer to be backstage or behind the camera, we have lots of exciting opportunities for you to be working in our TV studio, edit suites and on our lighting rigs to direct performances or produce props for the show.

If you need assistance with your English language, we offer a range of courses that can help prepare you for postgraduate-level study.
Many students from this programme now have careers in major arts organisations worldwide or have progressed to MPhil/PhD degrees. Interning at Stagetext as Digital Research Intern also formed my worldview on the importance of accessibility in the arts and also gave me real experience working in an enterprising arts organization. By being in London, the epicentre of arts and culture, I managed to develop contacts with many influential figures in the world of arts, compared to when I was in Indonesia. Normally work placements relate to particular projects within an organisation therefore the most appropriate level of attendance can be negotiated with the organisation on a case-by-case basis with tutorial support.
If you want to make a career in music composition, music technology, or in the business side of the industry, our undergraduate and Master’s degree courses in music production and music management are for you. The focus is on contemporary theoretical issues in the field, although current concerns will be situated within the history of ethnomusicological discourse. During the module, you will gain familiarity with the connections between ethnomusicology and related disciplines such as anthropology, and with debates concerning disciplinary boundaries within music studies. The aim of taught modules, projects and placements is to introduce you to new models of practice. These will be investigated and evaluated as a way of developing an understanding of management principles. Through this process, you will also be equipped with the necessary practical skills to enhance your potential as arts administrators.
