    Mate its fucking sick, on a course now.. My 1st project was to record some live instruments (great to know), 2nd project was to remix or replicate a track, and final one is to produce 30minutes of your own music! Also do lots of work on cubase and stuff. At Northbrook College in Worthing mate, if you live near, deffinatly worth a look

    Last august I applied for a course at point blank that was free, went for the interviews and everything and got told i got in, then they emailed me and said the course was cancelled due to lack of funding or something to run the course.

    So i applied for a music technology course at city westminster college. Its a HNC which is sort of like a foundation and requires 2 a levels to get into, sort of like a back door to uni. I dont have any so i talked to the tutor and he said he will let me do it if i think i could keep up. I have to say, when i went in for the introduction lesson i was fucking clueless lol

    It is actualy a proper good course and they cover eveything. Music business, audio electronics and acoustics, computer music systems and production, studio recording and contextual studies. The assignments are like essays on setting up a computer based studio, creating soundscapes using logic and some outboard gear (they have a moog voyager) :not_worth others are making amplifiers to tracking a live band down in their studio.

    Seriously if your looking for a course i have to recommend this one. It does cost around £1500 but you can easily get a student grant thing which is what i did and it didnt cost me a penny.
