The course will develop your songwriting skills to establish your own musical style whilst learning how to record, produce and master your products to ensure they are industry ready for marketing and promotion.

On this course you will collaborate extensively within the School of Creative Arts, connecting with peers in the fields of Composition, Music Production, Audio Engineering, as well as Live Sound and Lighting to reflect industry practice. The course provides many opportunities for students to collaborate and perform their music in state-of-the-art performance spaces, including our regular HertsLive event and our end of year SonicHerts festival.

Many of our university staff within the Music department are active within the music industry as producers, songwriters, composers, remixers, sound designers and engineers, bringing their experience and expertise into the teaching space.

This tailor-made course has been designed to include the core values required for a successful career as a songwriter. This will include writing engaging songs and making them sound great through contemporary production techniques. You will gain the knowledge to market and promote them effectively in a learning environment where you will develop personally and professionally.

So, if you are a talented songwriter, performer, producer or other music-creator with an appetite to expand your understanding of songwriting and its place within the wider creative industries, then this course is the ideal fit for you.
