Course Overview

Unleash your inner musician with the Digital Music Production course.

Whether you are a budding producer or complete novice, this course enables each person to build on the skills they have already. Fire Tech provides the opportunity for young people to explore some fantastic software and make their own professional music.

With the combination of digital music theory and technology skills, kids finish understanding how music is created and assembled, and know how to do it themselves! We aim for our students to be inspired and create something that is meaningful for them.

At the end of the course, students will publish their work so that the world can hear their achievements! Check out our previous students’ work on Soundcloud.

This is an independent learning course, with a focus on project work. Students will work independently at their own pace through learning materials and assignments, and also have weekly live onscreen tutorials for sharing progress and problem-solving.

There are 5 weekly tutorials, lasting 1 hour each. These tutorials are led by an expert, fully DBS-checked instructor, and you will join a small group of other young learners online, working together in fun and interactive sessions. All sessions are monitored and recorded for safety.
