ABOUT THE COURSE

Our Level 2 course is the first stage in the SoundSkool journey and is designed for students who have some previous experience with music performance and/or production.
You can choose a pathway in either music production or performance. Whichever pathway you choose you will be guided by SoundSkool’s team of expert tutors who will guide you towards your musical career goals.
If you choose the performance pathway you will undertake study of music rehearsal skills, develop your music theory and songwriting skills and work towards a group or solo performance.
If you choose the production pathway you will harness your music production skills, learning intermediate level techniques in remixing, production & mixing.
Both pathways are geared towards helping you develop your own unique musical style, build your technique and allow progression onto our flagship level 3 course.
Throughout the course you will gain hands on experience in performance and production, working on a variety of individual and collaborative projects. You will complete both practical and theoretical assignments, including opportunities to showcase your work at regular SoundSkool events.
You will have opportunity to network through connecting with the established music industry professionals at SoundSkool’s renowned masterclasses, as well as going on industry trips, outings and attending seminars/workshops.

Students will also undertake GCSE and/or functional skills in English and/or Mathematics if they have not yet achieved Grade 4 or above
