The BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music (Technology) has been specifically created to help you develop the skills you need to start your journey into the music industry.

You will get a flavour of what it's like to work in the industry, by taking part in live performances as technical support for sound and lighting. There will also be opportunities to use the recording studio, producing music and creating sound effects for videos.
Industry experts and musicians will visit to hold workshops for you, and if you like travelling, you will love the trips to local and European music and cultural venues.
