Who is this Music Technology tuition aimed at?

A Level Music Technology Student

There are 4 components to deal with in the Edexcel Music Technology A level and I know that students can have problems with all of them.

Component 1 is about Recording & Mixing and is practical in nature. The student needs to record and mix a track that has been selected form the list of Artists that comes out every year. This can seem daunting to someone who has never done this before. 

As your tutor, I can help you come up with a recording schedule and show you how to get the best mix from the audio that you have captured.

In addition to  the tutor sessions, you also get a free copy of my Band Mixing Tutorial that will show you many of the techniques you need to understand.

Component 2 covers composition and how to use music technology as part of the creative process. Here I will use the Edexcel Mark Scheme to outline what you need to do in order to achieve higher marks. You have to make use of Sampling, Synthesis and creative effects to do this. A can help you gain a better understanding of these subjects and how to use them effectively within your composition.

Component 3 is exam based and is about music technology in context. We look at how Music Technology has changed throughout the decades, and how it has had an effect on different genres of music. As your tutor, I will help you understand these topics through looking at exam technique and by improving your critical listening skills. 

Component 4 is a practical exam  where your understanding of music production will be tested under exam condition. As your music tech tutor, I can show you the techniques you need to get good marks.

As part of your Music Tech tutor sessions, you also get my Component 4 revision guides for free.
