Study type Taught


Postgraduate courses in Music Technology at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire are aimed at the creative music producer that wishes to gain an advanced level understanding of Music Technology practice and theory within a conservatoire environment. Its intention is to create graduates that are flexible and virtuosic in their use of technology as their instrument, equally at home in the studio or a live setting.

With Music Technology as your principal subject area, and unique to Conservatoire music technology programmes, you’ll have weekly one-to-one lessons in various music technology techniques, with exciting opportunities to experiment with and develop expertise in the creative application of established and new music technologies. There are lots of opportunities to collaborate with performers and composers across disciplines. You may also complete your knowledge by auditing undergraduate modules to build further your technical understanding in areas such as studio recording, live recording, editing, synthesis, sampling, programming, coding, mixing, surround sound, media music, mastering and recording project management skills.

Our Music Technology facilities are unsurpassed within the sector. You’ll be taught within our £57 million cutting-edge building, which includes our 150-seat Recital Hall, customised for performance with technology, our flexible black box performance space known as The Lab, seven recording studios fitted with state-of-the-art equipment of the highest specification, plus professional editing and mastering suites. Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is an internationally important centre for performance and composition with technology, especially live electronics. An example of its work is the highly acclaimed Integra Live project, an application that makes it easy to use interactive audio processing to create new music.

Alongside your focus on Music Technology, our courses provide opportunities for you to develop other skills relevant to a future career in the music profession. We provide a friendly and supportive environment in which you can pursue your postgraduate studies. This is a time when you need to think particularly carefully and strategically about the direction of your developing career. We therefore encourage you to be ambitious in pursuing your aspirations, and endeavour to provide you with the flexibility to mould your course to your individual needs; both within your Principal Study area and in complementary modules.
