Music Production

Courses

Music Production student Thomas Armstrong sits in the music production studio for Creative Arts students.

Performance, recording, mixing, arranging – whatever area of music production interests you, Edge Hill will give you the opportunities to master your skills. With three recording studios and links with professional producers and established professionals across the industry, you’ll always have something new to learn. And with our practical assessments, you can focus on what’s most important to you: making great music.

We’re looking for students who live and breathe music. You might be a drummer, guitarist or singer. Or perhaps you put your energy into composing instead. Here at Edge Hill we’ll help you create incredible music, whether you see yourself as a future performer or a technician.

From songwriting to sound design, there are a huge range of career destinations on stage and at the mixing desk in the music industry. Our course lets you explore the areas that interest you, using professional-grade equipment in our studios. Since most of your work will be assessed by coursework, you can focus on building an impressive portfolio to kick-start your career.

You’ll feel part of the industry even as a student and explore real challenges facing professionals. We regularly invite our connections to give guest lectures, we’re partners with the Liverpool Sound City festival, and the University even has its own record label.

  • Collaborate with other students and work on a range of genres in your songwriting, studio or live recording.
  • We designed your assignments to test your skills in practical activities – recording, report writing or creating blogs and videos.
  • From Neumann microphones to professional grade instruments made by Rickenbacker, Ludwig, Marshall and more, our three studios are equipped with the same industry-standard gear you’ll find in many professional environments.
