2. Course description
Music Technology covers all aspects of creative studio work, including stereo ambient recording, multi-track recording, electro-acoustic music, arranging, studio engineering, producing and composition for film. The aim of the department is to foster creativity and skill in the use of the latest technology and to equip pupils with up-to-date knowledge for their future work in the studio-music environment. Music Technology is taught following the Edexel syllabus and pupils are encouraged to work well beyond the briefs and limits set by the board. All students have access to a dedicated Sixth Form music room throughout the day for their individual work.
The music technology facilities include a recording studio, an editing studio and two computer music suites running Logic pro X and Sibelius software.
Music Technology requires you to submit a portfolio of work which includes a recording and technology-based composition. Students are also assessed on their listening and analysing skills and as well as their ability to produce and mix under examination conditions.
The three areas of study are:
 Recording and production techniques for both corrective and creative purposes.
 Principles of sound and audio technology
 The development of recording and production technology
