Whether it’s underground or mainstream, DIY or commercial, acoustic or electric, this course is for artists with eclectic styles and open-minded approaches to music making. During your time at Falmouth, you’ll work creatively in both live and studio environments.
|Course Duration||3 years|
As an independent performer, songwriter and self-producer, you’ll learn how to promote and release your own work, creating innovative portfolios based on experimentation, musicianship and a confident understanding of the industry. You'll study the audio-visual elements of pop and develop ways of critically conceiving and creating 'real' and 'virtual' presences. As someone invested in how pop makes meaning, you'll define a practice that's stylistically sophisticated and future facing.

- Establish innovative approaches to music making, the music business and technology.
- Perform and record in our high-spec AMATA studios.
- Forge industry links with studios, record labels, promotion companies and venues.

As we follow the roadmap out of the pandemic, for the academic year 2021/22, the University expects to be able to deliver courses as they were designed. However, the institution must comply with any public health measures that are imposed by Government and may need to vary its delivery at short notice. Examples of amendments we have previously made to modules to comply with government guidance can be found here.
