A course dedicated to the study of and training into modern music production. The course explains how the human body perceives and understands sound, what sound waves are and how they work, what 'live' and 'field' recording sessions are and how to organise one, the history of music recording and production technology and the now multiple roles of a music producer. The course also introduces the student to audio-editing software such as Garageband and Audacity, and explains how to change how an audio file sounds using various techniques and effects built in to the software.
The course places emphasis on how the work done in the classroom is relevant to modern music-related professions, such as composing for film and television, and on how famous music producers go about their work.
