Music “You'll develop as a musician but you also learn the technical side as well so you'll be able to handle yourself on both sides of the mixing desk.” Ian Harris

We offer a range of music degrees that develop your skills and knowledge of all aspects of the music industry. You will learn from practising professionals and you’ll benefit from our fantastic facilities at Markeaton Street. You will also have opportunities to technically manage performances and live events at Derby Theatre, and in our Mac studios you will use industry-standard music and multimedia software.

Our new recording studio suite is equipped with the latest HDX Protools systems, lots of great outboard gear, a vast range of instruments, and a Classic 48 channel Neve recording console. Focusrite, who sponsor one of our studios, has made us one of the first three sites in the world to receive its new product, RedNet. This system can transmit more than 200 digital audio channels through one single ethernet cable, vastly reducing the number of cables needed for gigs and recording sessions.
