Music Performance and Production Level 2


On the Extended Diploma in Music Performance and Production UAL Level 2 course, you will learn a wide range of musical skills: performance; composition; studio production; music and sound for video; event organisation, all underpinned by effective research.


There are several important areas that are also covered: music law; psychology of music and therapy; sound design and synthesis and health and safety for musicians.


A curiosity and enthusiasm to explore a range of musical skills and experiences, going beyond what you are used to is the key to success and progression into a competitive industry.
