Students are encouraged to explore their musicality and create original materials using technology. For example students have the opportunity to sequence MIDI and audio, record live instruments, and compose using music technology. They will also build an understanding of the technical processes and principles that underpin effective use of music technology, and comment on it in writing. The College has a fully-equipped recording studio running the latest versions of Logic Pro X and Sibelius.

Some past students of Music Technology have gone on to follow degree courses such as Music, Music Production, Digital Music and Music Performance at leading universities such as The Royal Northern College of Music, The Academy of Contemporary Music, Middlesex University, Southampton Solent University, Stafford University, Falmouth University and Sussex University.
Students are expected to have good music reading ability as well as proficiency at an instrument of choice. They may have studied GCSE Music (but this is not a pre-requisite) with keyboard skills being highly desirable.
