Saturday Music School Tech
(ages 13 - 18)
Saturday Music School Tech is for young people who want to learn about music production, and is the only course of its kind in a UK conservatoire. Students will learn how to record in a music studio, work with MIDI and audio using Logic Pro X and Ableton Live, and record live bands.
The course is an excellent introduction to anyone who may wish to study Music Technology at A-Level or BTEC or wants to know more about music production techniques.
Students have the opportunity to try out their ideas and work closely with staff and other students. We particularly encourage young female producers to apply; we believe in the importance of addressing the gender imbalance across the industry.
The SMS Tech course takes place every Saturday morning during term time at Leeds College of Music from 9:30am – 1pm.
Who is the SMS Tech Course for?
Young producers interested in SMS Tech will ideally have some experience of music technology and/or playing a musical instrument, but this is not compulsory.
SMS Tech projects evolve with the students and so the programme changes year on year according to their needs. Students will usually attend for a number of years to develop their knowledge with an extensive programme of activity.
