IADT are excited to announce a new learning pathway on our BA (Hons) Creative Music Production programme.
Based on years of development and student/industry feedback, applicants can now apply for a learning pathway that allows them to develop as musicians, as well as learning about the production and creation of music and audio. This new pathway: Music Practice (as opposed to music performance) enables performers to use technology creatively.
This is a new and unique approach focused on music performance and technological development.
All applicants to the CAO this year will be contacted by our Admissions Office about this new pathway.
