Music Technology classes encompass all the areas in which technology has revolutionised the modern-day music industry. Students can choose to focus on composition, remixing, sound-design or dj-skills, while developing knowledge of the music industry and learning to use cutting edge software and equipment. Full-time and part-time accredited courses at Level 2 (GCSE equivalent) and Level 3 (A-Level equivalent) offer the chance to obtain a recognised qualification while learning industry relevant skills.
WHY STUDY MUSIC PRODUCTION AT THE RHYTHM STUDIO?
Music Technology courses take place at The Rhythm Studio's music academy within Kensington & Chelsea College. The purpose-built facilities include a state of the art recording studio, soundproofed rehearsal rooms and an iMac suite running Logic Pro X and Ableton Live with Push.
Regular live events take place in our own performance space, at which students have the opportunity to engineer, perform and record. We also use top London music venues for live gigs throughout the year, and our students have been invited to perform further afield at major UK festivals, including Camp Bestival and Glastonbury.
