Five Reasons to Study Music & Sound Production

Lots of courses to choose from 

There are a range of courses and study options available in Music & Sound Production at our Milton Road and Sighthill campuses. Whether you’re interested in singing and song writing, sound engineering or putting on events, a course at Edinburgh College could help you make it in the music industry.  

Supportive learning environment  

At Edinburgh College you will also benefit from a fun and supportive learning environment with experienced and professional lecturers. There is a flexible curriculum in place to support your learner journey. Students working towards their HND Music receive 20 hours of one-to-one tuition.

World class facilities

As one of the largest music and sound production departments in Scotland, the facilities at Edinburgh College are some of the best in the area. You will have access to all recording and rehearsal facilities out of hours which includes recording studios, film studios and two 100 seat auditoriums.

Collaborate with your peers

There are lots of projects you can get involved in to put what you’ve learned in the classroom and studio into practice. In the past, music business students have had the opportunity to set up and run their own record label and music students can get involved with performing or recording a live lounge for Edinburgh College TV.

Further learning and employment  

After completing a HND in Music, Music Business or Sound Production you can go on to study degree programmes at various universities. You can also get an honours degree in three years without leaving Edinburgh College through one of our three degree programmes delivered in partnership with Kingston University.  

If further study isn’t for you, there are lots of employment opportunities within the industry. The established work placements at Edinburgh College can help put you ahead of the competition. Music business graduates have gone on to work at major labels like Sony and Universal.
