Ez,
I'm intending to chuck my job in next year and start a music production course full time (will be good to be a student again). Can any of you please reccommend me some courses to look at. I'm am currently in the london area. I am willing to travel, but would prefer not to go to the other end of the country.

Any info/Links would be much appreciated

cheers

ez,

I took a BTEC Music Technology course and heres the gud and bad points.........i gave it up after the first year.

Gud..

- You will learn alot about sound/waves what they are, how they travel about a recording studio/setup/why they set it up the way they do/what good production is and how to do it yourself using analog/digital desks etc- about mix downs using digital/analog teqniques/learn cubase or sumthing of the sort/sampling etc etc....

id say more detail but its been a year or to so i cnt remember without looking at wat i done & im @ work now!

bad..

you may already kno most of this stuff <--- or alot you could learn in a much smaller time without the irrellevent info.(you get alot of that)[buy a book called Modern Recording Teqniques!]
Pressure for assignments/dedlines to be met.
Learning music theory all over again <--- from the basics even if you know it already.
The course not being DJ/Producer specific....you will have to learn alot of irrelivance!

I left as i felt the course was not giving me the info i needed.....or if it did, not in the detail/how i wanted it.

Hope this helps

seems pretty interesting
yeah, I just spoke to one of the guys up there. I'm gonna go up one Wednesday for a tour. The course seems good. 2/3 of the course are done on Saturdays, and the other 1/3 on wednesday and thursday evenings. Its looks expensive, but I think that the education will be invaluble. Also I don't have to give up my job and its done within 9 months. You do get a BTech or A-level equivelent, but I'm not intrested in using it to get a job, just so I know how to use all the software to its full potential. You get as much studio time as you need as well within the 9 months.

I'm keen

how do you mean you wouldn't pay? You mean you wouldn't give money to an institution to learn music production?
