Course Aim
The course constitutes a continuation of Music Producer, pop/rock 2 and aims at further development of the established course objectives:
  • display the ability as a music producer to develop their artistic voice and identity.
  • display a broad historical and musical/practical knowledge of popular music in general, alternatively a comprehensive knowledge of their chosen genre/their chosen genre complex.
  • display the ability in recording situations to develop and complete chosen music, their own composition or others, and with both a clear voice of their own and, in cases where the music has been created by others, simultaneous sensitivity and understanding of the originators’ intentions.
  • within their area, to be a knowledgeable, expressive and able producer with considerable receptiveness to new trends and development paths.
  • possess relevant knowledge of the music industry and ability to work independently in working life as well as be able to realise their own artistic projects

On the basis of each student’s unique background and own artistic goals, the course’s specific contents are tailor-made individually in consultation with the person responsible for overall direction.
For the same reasons different elements require varying forms of instruction (see example under Realisation). See also various forms of examination (see further under Examinations).


Examples of forms of instruction:

Individual tutorials, group lessons, ensemble playing, lectures, seminars, workshops, recordings, concerts, own music, own projects.


Students select, in consultation with the person responsible for direction, among suitable forms of both continuous presentations in connection with the teaching as well as for the final examinations. Examples of these are: oral, written and sound-based presentations, recordings and concerts with connection to the student’s individual plan.

For the Approved grade it is expected that the student shall have completed and presented the required assignments, all in such a manner that the course goals can be deemed to have been met.

For the grade Well Approved it is expected that the student shall have fulfilled all the requirements as well as, additionally, have displayed a musical ability and originality from an artistic perspective which well exceeds what is required for the Approved grade.
