MUSIC TECHNOLOGY & SOUND ENGINEERING BACHELOR

The Music Technology and Sound Engineering Bachelor is an innovative and up-to-date Course, targeted to the creation of professionals such as live or recording studio Sound Engineers, Sound Designers and Programmers, tv/radio sound engineers, Midi programmers and music technicians.

A specialization Diploma, a wealth of experience and complete, innovative and avant-garde skills for the training of Sound Technicians, Sound designers and Programmers, for recording studio professionals and in live contexts, on analogue systems and in digital environments (Pro-Tools Hd), experimenting with real recording, mixing and recording sessions. Practical classes are organized in small groups to work individually on microphones, signal manipulation, outboard, mix and post-production techniques, both on analogue counters and on entirely digital domains.

HOW TO APPLY – DATES AND DEADLINES:

The INTAKES (admissions tests) for International Students are held every year in
FEBRUARY (1st INTAKE)
JUNE (2nd INTAKE)

The precise dates will be communicated once the interested students apply for the Courses and, in the case of the Pop and Jazz Course, pass the pre-selection phase.

The APPLICATION PERIOD
for the 1st Intake runs from December 1st to January 30th every year.
for the 2nd Intake runs from December 1st to April 30th every year.

Therefore the Deadline to send the Application Form and the pre-selection video is either January 30th or April 30th, according to the selected intake. Late applications will be singularly considered, at the Direction’s discretion, on the basis of possible available places and/or renounces.
