Purpose and aims of the Course

The purpose of the National 3 Music Technology Course is to enable learners to develop their knowledge of music technology, and of basic music concepts, particularly those relevant to 20th and 21st century music, through practical learning.

The aims of the Course are to enable learners to:

♦ Develop basic skills in the use of music technology hardware and software to
capture and manipulate audio
♦ Use music technology in sound production
♦ Develop a basic understanding of significant 20th and 21st century musical styles
and genres
♦ Reflect, in simple terms, on their own work and that of others

The practical and experiential nature of the Course gives learners opportunities to work collaboratively, show imagination and creativity, and apply basic technical skills as they use music technology in a variety of ways.
