R.E.A.L. Music at Newark

After six years of success and growth in Mansfield, R.E.A.L. Education’s state-of-the-art music provision is branching out to the new Newark hub.

Offering the Rockschool (RSL) Level 1 accredited award in Music Technology, learners at R.E.A.L.’s Newark hub will have hands-on experience with digital composition, engineering, sampling, music for film, and what to expect when working in a real recording studio.

The technology available to learners at Newark is bang-up-to-date and industry standard. With brand new bespoke, custom-built computers, ‘Reason’ software (the most spectacular piece of digital composition technology available) and Pro 9 ‘Cubase’ engineering software, learners will be able to create professional sounding, high quality recordings.

By ensuring that our music facilities reflect current technological trends, skills learnt by R.E.A.L. music learners can easily be transferred directly into industry, or into a music production further education course at places such as West Nottinghamshire College or the Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies.

Younger learners can also access the technology and facilities at Newark, with shorter term R.E.A.L. accredited courses and experiences on offer.

Rob Lyons, Provision Manager at R.E.A.L. Education said: “After the success of the last six years, we are excited to branch out and offer provision at another East Midlands location.“We are looking forward to finding some new potential up and coming music talent in Newark!”
