B.S. in Music Audio Production Concentration

The B.S. in Music/Audio Production incorporates and prepares students for work in the sound recording and production industry with a more focused approach than the B.A. in Music/Music Industry – Sound Engineering and is responsive to industry demands for more specific and intensive educational background in the discipline. Similar to the BA/Sound Engineering track in its strong emphasis on music training, the BS augments its discipline –specific education with an increased number of audio production courses. Because the typical audio production facility is either a small business or owner operated, several music business courses have been integrated into the program. Since real world experience and networking are invaluable to the aspiring sound engineer, our students are given opportunities to engage in numerous projects through internships and courses that are taught on location with our studio partner, TNT Productions, and at other facilities.

Auditioning/Interviewing for the B. S. in Audio Production

Acceptance into the Audio Production program is based on an interview and a demonstration of the candidate’s fluency on a particular instrument or voice. This program is not a performance oriented degree; therefore, the level of performance does not need to reflect the same level of skill as a performer required of those interested in a performance major. However, since it is a music degree, we require that candidates have some facility on a musical instrument or voice and can demonstrate basic literacy in conventional music notation. Candidates should be prepared to discuss reasons why they wish to pursue the B. S. in Audio Production. Support materials (CD recordings, creative work, past editing projects, etc.) are helpful, but not necessary for admittance into the program. Some basic pitch matching exercises will be asked of the candidate.

Note: All music majors are required to achieve a minimum grade of C in all music classes.
