When you join East Riding College to study music, you join a college situated in a region with a vibrant arts and culture scene.
Our specialist music department is based at our Hull site, right at the centre of a city which thrives following its reign as City of Culture 2017.
We have rehearsal space, a professional recording studio and our own record label ERC Academy Records. The industry-inspired programme of study features an artist development course and students have the opportunity to perform in a range of venues across the region.

This course will provide an opportunity to develop the intellectual, creative and technical skills required to be a successful contemporary practitioner in the music industry.

Students will receive industry-specific tuition on instrumental skills, recording technology and performance, with the opportunity to become a promotional team, facilitaiting gigs both regionally and nationally. The course is oriented towards music industry work experience with opportunities to develop skills and work experience from teaching to entrepreneurship; both in the studio as well as music business.

The course is naturally aimed at musicians who would like to take the opportunity to extend their skills and an understanding of what is required of them in the music industry today while working on a full-time basis to a recognised higher education qualification. Students will complete the HNC music course in the first year and progress on to the HND music in the second year. We are offering this as a stand alone course to all music practitioners who would like to develop their skills and benefit from work experience that is designed to self-actualise their dreams of a successful music career.

Modules

• Music technology: Mixing and mastering skills
• Composing to a brief using technology
• Advanced performing skills
• Artist development
• Creative research

Assessment methods

The delivery is entirely modular with no set exams as such. It is designed to be supportive to the student’s career with targeted projects set with regard to practical and academic development. This means you will be assessed in a variety of ways, including written assignments, work-based assignments, work experience, practical assessment, video portfolio development.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
