Performing Music, Diploma Level 2

Performing Music, Diploma Level 2


Students work towards the University of the Arts London (UAL) Level 2 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts. This qualification is an outstanding foundation for higher level study within the department.
With an emphasis on various forms of popular and contemporary music, the course will focus on the practical and theoretical to develop both your academic and performance skills.

Across the units you will begin to explore music theory, the workings of the music industry as a business and as a cultural force in modern society, and of course get a lot of opportunity to play. Expect to have your standard of musicianship raised considerably. You can also expect to learn a great deal about working with other people, particularly within a “band” context. Right from the start you will be treated like a young professional musician with gigs at venues such as Platform Theatre and rehearsals in recording studios within our Creative Arts Building as well as in the college’s purpose built recording, rehearsal & technology studios.

To view recent productions and gigs follow @CCNMusic on Twitter and search CCN on You Tube.

There are a number of key visits during the year. These may change from year to year, but you will see a great deal of live music.

You are likely to:

Plan, create and lead performances at live gigs, concerts or theatre productions.
Participate in recording sessions.
Prepare for and attend rehearsals.
Perform solo as well as collaborating with other musicians.
Set-up equipment and perform sound checks.
Learn new music to extend your repertoire.
Play music from memory or score.
Apply music theory and analysis to compositions.
Use music technology in sequencing and song writing.
Minimum of four GCSEs grades *A-E, including English and GCSE Maths 9-3. Relevant Level 1 Diploma at minimum Merit, including GCSE English and GCSE Maths 9 -3. Successful completion of audition and interview prior to selection.
If you are a UK or home- fee status student and aged 16-18 on the 31st August before the start of your course, tuition fees are free. If you are aged 19 years and over please contact the Advice Shop. Please check our Finance pages for information on loans, bursaries, fee information and student travel offers that are available. Alternatively please contact the Advice Shop.
Assessment is on-going throughout the course and requires you to complete projects and assignments based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands. Assessment activities that you may undertake include participating in practical workshops, rehearsals, performances, coursework, research, keeping journals, writing essays, giving presentations and discussing & evaluating work.
Most students who successfully complete the Level 2 progress onto Level 3 within the Creative Arts department; with students having the option of the following Performing and Production Arts pathways at level 3: Dance, Musical Theatre, Acting, Performance, Music and Production Arts.
