The Bachelor of Music (BMus) degree in Music Production and Technology trains musicians to become music production professionals (i.e. recording, mixing, mastering engineers). Musicianship training has played an essential role for many, if not most, successful producers. Through study in music, electronics and acoustics, Hartt students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to work in the professional audio industry.
In the third year each student joins a production team of two or three MPT majors whose assignments guide them through the learning and application of the tools of the modern recording studio. In the fourth year each team produces a full-length cd project. The team follows the project through from pre-production to recording, mixing, editing and mastering. The senior project becomes a valuable tool for job seeking.
Another outlet for students to develop technique and gain more experience within the studio environment is the Hartt Recording Studio. Providing recording services to any Hartt student, staff, or faculty member as well as outside clients, the studio is staffed by Music Production and Technology majors. Students are encouraged from the time they enter The Hartt School to be actively involved participants with the production studio.
The department maintains two well-equipped professional studios. For more information please visit the Music Production and Technology department website .
