Sound plays an important role in all of the media we see on a daily basis. Imagine playing a computer game, watching a film or TV show or using a mobile app without any sound effects or music. It would have a drastic effect on your overall experience. 


Creative Audio is a course designed to teach you how to build sound effects and make exciting soundtracks for a range of media products. From creating racing car engines and explosion effects for computer games, to developing other-worldly sounds and music for animations or film, you will develop the skills and know-how ready for employment in the media industry. Using our fantastic recording equipment and facilities, you'll work both in the studio and on the field making great sounds.
