The Certificate courses developed by LSS combine audio engineering with critical listening, arrangement, sound design, music business, and other disciplines to provide the skills that build careers.
The focus of this curriculum is very much on practical skills mixed with personal development: technical training on the equipment is just one part of the overall learning experience that makes the education of a music producer.
Most of the individual lectures that make the Certificates are also available as short courses, or in a different format as Summer courses.
There are three levels of certificates, based on the number of Credits you have gained:
Each Certificate is available part-time or full-time; the length of the course is the same but full-time has additional lectures, content, and unlimited use of the facilities.
There are many different angles to working with music. Are you looking for a career recording bands or running a label? Songwriting or producing electronic music?
We have invested a great deal of time and resources in developing a course that is completely modular so you can start from the lectures you need most, and even jump straight in to some of the most advanced classes as soon as you feel ready.
Depending on which Units you choose to study, your Certificate can have one or more specialisations: 'Music Production', 'Sound Engineering', 'Music for Media', 'Music Business'.
Speak to an advisor to get more details and a demonstration of how you could design your own course.

Formal education is not important, our decision is based mainly on previous experience, evidence of work, and personal statements.
Applying for an interview doesn’t cost anything and it is not a commitment to register for the course. Equally, being invited for an interview does not mean automatic acceptance.
