The Level 3 Diploma in Music, Performance and Production is a broad diagnostic course giving you an overview of a range of activities such as composition, listening skills, band rehearsal techniques and the delivery of a music performance and production. There is also an opportunity to research the history and context of music performance and production and use it to inform practice.

You will develop the ability to research, analyse and evaluate relevant information in order to develop creative solutions to complex problems. You will learn how to use practical methods and skills for creative production for appropriate audiences whilst being able to review their effectiveness for further improvement. You will also begin to take responsibility for the research, planning, time management and actions necessary to access progression opportunities in Higher Education or related work.
