higher diploma in music production and sound engineering

Higher Diploma in Music Production programme focusses on teaching Music Producers who know how best to infuse sound and mix while mastering the same. Alongside the history and theory, the course puts a strong emphasis on learning technical skills, so students spend time both in dedicated lectures and independently working in recordings of their own created works and applying the theories learnt.
