Teaches skills that no other music technology course does. Very technical so be wary if you're a creative type!

Overall, the course is great, except for one or two teachers who are really bad at teaching and it seems like they dont really like teaching, they only do it for the pay at the end of each month and this kinda ruins the whole experience.

Popular Music Production, BA Hons

By On 27th July 18

It wasn’t really a popular music course. It was the same as the classical course but with a songwriting module for the first two years. That class was fine but when I asked about producing my songs I was told not to bother because I’m just writing the lyrics. First few lessons in with my piano teacher, she told me to quit music. In this last year I’ve (and my music) been called mediocre twice. None of the lessons/lectures/seminars have been of any use. Total disappointment.

The teaching is acceptable but a few lecturers seem quite unsure about the content they're teaching and pretty much every lecture presentation contains multiple spelling and grammar errors, from every lecturer. Some course content is a little dated however this is due to the nature of the course spec being old, this has been rectified though as they department are replacing this curse with newer and more updated ones.

I've had a lot of fun so far on my course. Most of the information I've been presented feel relevant and interesting, and the remainder is generally good to know. The staff are all very friendly and have industry experience - they really know what they're talking about. The only real problem is that musicians generally have a harder time finding paid work placements in the third year, and most will have to spend the year working for free. This work placement however is optional and if you'd prefer, you can simply move into your final year (although the work placement will make your life a lot easier when you're trying to find a job after you finish your course).

I really enjoy my course and I have learned a lot in my first year. It is very challenging at times but that would be expected from any degree. There are a lot of skills I have developed on which I wouldn't have learned without doing this course.

Was some good modules like composing for film but generally not great. Spent lots of time being frustrated at the lecturers who put you down fot not doing writting or saying exactly what they didn't really ask you to do.

Overall a really good course. Some modules I feel could be better and maybe need to be reviewed such as Performance Skills 1. We had lots of confusion about assignments during the year and some I feel weren't even pertinent to the type of course I was doing. We have a tech store where we can loan out instruments and recording equipment, there's recording studios, practice rooms with grand pianos and two big performance halls. In Huddersfield uni, they encourage you to do a placement year between your second and third year, which I think it's great for work experience and to figure out what you'd like to do at the end of your degree. The only issue I had with the course is how I never met my personal tutor. He wasn't there the first 2 weeks and after that he was always busy or not there when I needed him. But the other tutors and head of department were always extremely helpful.

Excellent teachers who are leading figures in the field. Placement in final year is a great way of improving your employability and also a way of giving you an insight into the world of work.

I spent the previous 4 years working hard to get into a music course that would allow me to get into creative writing and composition. Be very careful about this university, it is mixed with the art block and is very avent garde. I had to drop out this course because it was so bad. The lecturers were very influenced by John Cage and used to review pieces of music (if you can call it that) composed for a blender (the kitchen item yes...) biggest waste of money in my life so far. This course is just about the music equilivant of that art you see with a chair in the middle of white room, or a splodge of paint in the centre of a canvas. Rubbish.

Good course, all base's are covered and well prepared information is shared constantly. In second year there is an extremely wide variety of modules to go down. Something for any type of musician.

Good course, good teaching, not too keen on my tutor. People either love or hate him and I'm one of the people who doesn't see him in such a good light. Facilities are fab.
