Elche University offers foundation degree in rock music
18 December 2014 @ 23:47

A COSTA Blanca university is offering a new foundation degree-level diploma in rock music.

Students take the first year of the course via distance learning online, honing their instrument-playing skills, improving their technique and polish, and increasing their vocal range.

They also learn musical directing, stage skills, instrument technology, history of rock, rhythm and percussion, amplifying and even building guitars, managing basic sound and voice equipment, and undertake voice classes aimed at composing records, forming harmony bands, and studying the language of music.

The qualification, called 'Graduate Expert in Rock', is roughly the equivalent in level to a 'chartered' title in the UK and is about the length of a BTEC Higher National Certificate, or just less than half a degree.

It has been pioneered at the Miguel Hernández University in Elche (southern Alicante province) and includes specialist modules in vocals, guitar, bass and drums, together with compulsory and optional units, requiring around 200 hours of study each year.
