Extended Diploma in Music (Level 3)
This popular, two year course provides a fantastic opportunity to develop your musical skills across the entire popular music spectrum; from Metal to Hip-Hop, from Folk to Grunge, from Jazz-Funk to Classic Rock and everything in between.
It allows you to develop and build on your existing interest and knowledge of popular music, such as playing and singing techniques, music technology, songwriting and composition, sound recording and performing, alongside a team of experienced tutors and fellow students from a wide range of backgrounds. If you want to be a committed musician, what better way could you find to spend your time ‘doing music’ every day and gain a substantial qualification at the same time?
We believe it is important to make students feel valued, so whatever you bring to the course in terms of prior ability and experience, we will help you to build and develop it, to realise your full, creative potential.
The course is practical and work-related covering all aspects of modern popular music including Rock, Jazz, Pop and World. It is designed to give you a broad-based foundation from which to progress to either Higher Education or directly into employment. All of our tutors have experience or currently work in a related area of the Music Industry, for example through performance, composing, and/or recording, and are able to pass on to students a wealth of practical and professional experience.
The Extended Diploma is equivalent to three A Levels and is recognised as such by all Universities and specialist Music Colleges.
