SSR London, the music industry course provider, has announced a range of new courses and course formats together with a mentoring and support programme for course graduates.
SSR’s flagship Industry Diploma courses are now available in an intensive three-month (two days per week) format, enabling students to undertake technical training and develop core skills quickly and affordably. The new Graduate Support Programme supports graduates with mentoring and careers guidance. Students can also take up paid work placements during their courses.
SSR is also making its studios available commercially to emerging artists, providing the opportunity to work in an professional recording environment at accessible rates, with students benefiting from experience of working on commercial sessions.
Alongside updated versions of SSR’s Industry Diplomas (Fundamentals of Studio Production, Post Production Sound for Film, Game and TV and Advanced Studio Production and Mastering) there is a new course, Contemporary Music Production, which focuses on in-the-box music production, composition and sound design with Logic, Ableton Live and Maschine.
A new range of introductory weekend courses have also been created at entry level which include Introduction to Ableton Live & Push, Introduction to Native Instruments Maschine, Introduction to Sound Design with Games and Music Business – Release Your Own Music.
Recent graduates of SSR currently work at Grand Cru Studios, Britannia Row, Wendyhouse, GPS Soho, Side Audio, Sony Games and the Audio Engineering Society, and with artists including Westlife, Stormzy, Louis Tomlinson, Olly Murs, Lil Simz, Avelino, Lily Allen, Friendly Fires, !!! and Octavian.
