Music production & technology at Hartt trains musicians to become music production professionals (i.e. recording, mixing, and mastering engineers). Musicianship training has played an essential role for many, if not most, successful producers. Through study in music, electronics and acoustics, you will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to work in the professional audio industry.
133.5 credits are required to complete the Bachelor of Music in music production & technology. The curriculum includes music and industry specific courses.

In your third year, you will join a production team of two or three MPT majors for an assignment that guides you through the learning and application of the tools of the modern recording studio.

In your fourth year, each team produces a full length recording project. The team follows the project from pre-production to recording, mixing, editing, and mastering. This project becomes a valuable tool when entering the professional world.
