Ita-Rose Whittam | Level 2 Music

Receiving positive feedback for my singing has boosted my confidence. An agent contacted me, and I got to send some recordings after I put my solo performance on the internet. After this year I want to get my band sorted and gig more. I would come back to L3 later as I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. Everyone is so nice to each other, and there is no hassle, it’s like a big family.

Course Overview

This course introduces you to the field of commercial music production and performance and provides opportunities for study at a higher level. You should be enthusiastic and have an active interest in music; and you should also enjoy participation in group activities and be willing to work creatively as a member of a team.

There is a music related residential visit as part of this course. It is possible to take a performance or a technical route as you study the following subjects: live music performance, world theory, music business, sound recording and composition. You will be required to audition for this course.

Student Finance
Whether you qualify for student finance depends on specific criteria. The main student finance package for full-time students includes a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan for living costs. Part-time students can access a tuition fee loan to pay for your course.

Generally, you will only get student finance if you’re doing your first degree-level qualification. This is true even if your previous course was self-funded.
