Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this course.

Having some experience of writing or performing music is a plus when starting the course, but it is not essential. Someone looking to enter the world of studio engineering will get as much from this course as a singer/songwriter. A keen interest in music and being open to a variety of genres will also be of benefit.
