This module draws together two important creative elements  –  songwriting and production. Songwriting will introduce and develop the skills you need to create, organise and produce srcinal work across a range of styles, focusing upon the fundamental compositional elements - lyrics, melody, harmony and rhythm. Using each of these elements, separately and collectively, as creative starting points, you will be encouraged to begin to develop your own songwriting. Music Technology aims to provide an overall view of how technology is used in modern music production. The emphasis is on midi and audio programming using Logic Pro, with as much practical application as possible. Main Topics of Study: Music Technology 1a  An introduction to the fundamentals of Music Technology designed to equip students with the tools necessary to understand and apply the principles of music processing and programming. Music Technology 1a will give you an understanding of what goes on in a modern recording studio and how production techniques, technology recording practices are used in contemporary music. Songwriting 1a  An introduction to the ethics of arrangement, and the basic principles of song construction, including form, lyric writing, and rhythmic and harmonic construction Semester 1a of this course teaches songwriting by following an historical time-line of specific musical genres. Students should expect to learn and acquire the core skills of songwriting   ATTENDANCE POLICY: Every student is required to engage ‘fully’ with module content in order to gain credit for their studies. Students must meet the University’s minimum attendance threshold of 75%. If a student is absent for two consecutive weeks, programme administrators will write to the student warning them of the consequences of non-attendance. In line with the ‘Student Attendance Policy’ (see student Handbook appendix E), students failing to attend for three consecutive weeks will automatically be withdrawn from the module in question. Withdrawal from two modules for reasons of non-attendance will result automatically in withdrawal from their programme of study.   4 MODULE AIMS To introduce and develop the skills required to create, organise and produce srcinal work.
