Ever since amplified music became mainstream, the technology used for performance by musicians has become more and more complex. This has been compounded by the increased use of digital equipment that has subsequently added layers of technicality that have raised the level of understanding required in order to work effectively in the industry. In turn, this has created many opportunities for graduates in this area.


Students will:

  • develop in-depth knowledge and practical skills to design and operate professional sound systems in a range of live event situations, from small club tours to festivals.
  • have opportunities to develop their CVs and experience at Focus Wales music festival, hosted partly in our Centre for Creative Industries and broadcast the performers on our own YouTube Channel, Glyndŵr TV.


You can also choose to study this course with a foundation year BSc (Hons) Live Sound (four years including foundation year) UCAS code: LSFY.
