The Foundation in Sound and Music is a pre-requisite programme for students who wish to study Bachelor (Hons) in Recording Arts. It teaches students the fundamentals of harmony, melody and rhythm, and the basics of sound and audio engineering.

Why study Foundation in Sound and Music?

Sound and music plays a subtle but key role in our daily lives—from the simple pings that mobile phone apps make, to the patter of rain in movies, to the crisp sound transmission of instruments in live events, to the recording mix of your favourite music album. Digital technology is changing the way music is produced, distributed, and consumed.

The music, film, TV, and gaming industries will always be in need of sound and music professionals. In fact, the IFPI (a Switzerland-based organization representing 1,300 record companies worldwide) reported a 4.3% growth or USD 5.9 billion in digital music revenue for 2013.

Why study at Limkokwing University?

Limkokwing University’s creative approach to education attracts students from more than 100 countries every intake. This unique multicultural environment exposes our students to different genres, instruments, and musical influences.

Public and private organizations regularly seek to collaborate with us in producing songs that are catchy and iconic. These collaborations give our Foundation in Sound and Music students valuable industry experience even before graduation.
Some of our most memorable and meaningful songs produced are:

  • Let’s Heal the Worldin partnership with UNICEF,

 

  • 1Malaysiafor the government’s Satu Malaysia Campaign,

 

  • 1M4Uto encourage youth volunteerism for the non-profit organization iM4U,

 

  • Malaysia Inovatiffor the 2010 Malaysian Year of Innovation, and

 

  • Be Smartfor the Royal Malaysia Police to promote awareness against cybercrimes.

 

The University’s Sound and Music Design Academy houses the best talent, facilities, and recording equipment to match these collaborative demands. We have fully-equipped recording studios for digital and analogue sound production, use the latest sound editing software for post-production audio engineering, and employ the best talents to guide our students through it.

What you will learn in Foundation in Sound and Music

The programme consists of three semesters dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of music, ear training, keyboard harmony, and MIDI programming. Students learn basic composition, recording, editing, mixing, and production using both digital and analogue equipment.

This balanced curriculum of music theory and practical application prepares our Foundation in Sound and Music students for their Bachelor (Hons) in Recording Arts.
