The R.E.A.L. Future of Music

Music Technology at R.E.A.L. Education has been taken to a whole new level thanks to six

new custom-built music-machine computers and the latest music software.


Based at R.E.A.L. Education’s Nottingham Road site, the computer’s house the new

‘Reason 9’ software – the most spectacular piece of digital composition technology available.

The engineering software, ‘Cubase’ has also been upgraded to the new Pro 9 version.

Together, these technologies allow R.E.A.L. learners to create professional sounding, bang

up-to- date recordings that are of an extremely high quality.


Using these tools will give learners further options for their future; either for further education

at places such as West Nottinghamshire College or the Confetti Institute of Creative

Technologies, or with a role within the music industry.


Rob Lyons, Provision Manager at R.E.A.L. Education said: “The technology means that our

learners are creating the most up to date, floor filling bangers imaginable. We currently have

a learner who has over 1 million views on YouTube by the alias Dead Critic. The technology

we have at R.E.A.L. allows classroom learning to translate into real-life hits – it really is fantastic.”
