Study Music Technology at Otago

Student smiling at camera


The music world of today is comprised of overlapping media and technologies and new music professionals will need a plurality of skill-sets to make their mark. Desktop tools for music creation and production provide an unprecedented opportunity for people to create their music outside of traditional studio-system production houses. Along with this democratisation of the process comes a need for commensurate skill-sets in using the technology to create sophisticated and meaningful media products.

The Music Technology minor caters to any music genre or style, from classical to traditional folk music, jazz and beyond. The papers are designed to empower students with the tools necessary to create, perform, record and enjoy music on all levels, in the constantly expanding digital environment we experience today.
