In the area of music arranging, you will learn score layout, instrument properties and ranges, orchestration and scoring techniques for horns, voices and orchestra. You will develop skills in using music notation software to write arranging scores and instrumental parts for small and big bands, for live show bands and for full orchestra.

In the area of music production, you will develop studio and live sound techniques allowing you to record, process and mix your musical works at a professional standard. You will develop skills in operating digital audio workstations and software plugins as well as sequencing to produce your commercial works. You will study and discuss the techniques used by world-renowned sound engineers and music producers in the process of identifying your own personal production style and sound.

In the area of music business, you will study entertainment law that governs both the traditional and digital realms. From copyright protection and music publishing to digital rights management and royalty payment, you will investigate the various legal aspects applicable to protection and promotion of commercial works. You will develop skills in management – of artists and events in particular and learn entrepreneurship skills to prepare for a wide career option in the professional music industry.

In addition to the core areas, you will develop auditory skills to refine your musical ear to distinguish melodic intervals, harmonic progressions and complex rhythmic patterns. You will study music history from medieval times through to the 21st century and through the study you will trace the roots of today’s traditional Malay music. You will also learn research methods to prepare you to conduct your own research in music and also learn how to attend interviews and present yourself to prospective employers.
