Music & Media
Level 1 Diploma
On the Level 1 music and media course you are shown how to make music on a computer using Logic X in any style of your choice. No previous experience is required as you will be shown how to do everything from scratch.
You will also make music by recording a variety of sounds with microphones. Some of these recordings will be of the usual instruments; guitars, bass vocals etc and some of the sounds you will record will be the sounds of random objects or found sounds.
You will make some music videos to go with the tracks you have created.
Some of the work you will do solo and some you will do in small groups of 3 or 4.
There is a media angle to the course which involves projects like making a radio play and advert, creating sounds for TV and film and adding sound effects to a movie trailer of your choice. All of your best work is ultimately uploaded to the website you will make as your final show piece.
The aim of level1 is to give you an insight into several aspects of the sound and recording industry and to prepare you for level 2.
Of course you will be expected to attend Maths and English lessons as part of the course.
