PRODUCTION AND SCORE STUDIES - 2022/3
Module code: TON2021
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University has revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University has changed the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes. Further information on the general principles of hybrid learning can be found at: Hybrid learning experience | University of Surrey.
We have updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. We are currently working on bringing remaining published information up to date to reflect current practice in time for the start of the academic year 2021/22.
This means that some information within the programme and module catalogue will be subject to change. Current students are invited to contact their Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
This module is intended to introduce and develop the skills needed in professional music production of a variety of genres.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to: develop your practical and critical listening skills and your abilities in score reading, production and post-production. Your aural skills will be developed through the regular use of a software-based training package.
The learning and teaching methods include:
- One-hour or two-hour lectures each week
- One hour per week aural training software to be used as tracked self study
- Workshops to include session observation
- Guided reading/listening
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
