FACULTY & STAFF
The University of Texas at Arlington offers a Bachelor of Music degree with emphases in both Music Media and Music Business. These programs are designed to give students the skills necessary to succeed in the music industry, and they combine long-established principles of listening and musicality with new philosophies about equipment and the current music industry. Changes in curriculum, a brand new recording studio and new faculty are just a few of the exciting changes taking place at UT Arlington.
Music Media at UT Arlington
Designed for musicians wanting to pursue a career in audio production, students take classes in Digital Music Technology, three semesters of Recording Techniques, Business of Music, as well as Introduction to Musical Acoustics. Students also have the opportunity to take classes in Sound and Post-Production, Theater Sound Design, and Music in Film, among others. Critical listening, audio recording techniques, combining MIDI and audio, editing, and multitracking are just a few of the skills that students learn at UTA. Using Studio 301 and Irons Hall, students learn how to record diverse genres of music, such as classical music, jazz and pop/rock. We believe the best audio engineers combine the ears of a musician with the technical capabilities of an engineer.
Music Business at UT Arlington
Interdisciplinary in nature, students in the Music Business program at UT Arlington take courses both from the Music Department and from the College of Business. The program is designed to prepare musicians to work in management, public relations, entertainment law, representation, publishing, marketing, accounting and other areas of the music industry. Students take courses in music business, digital music technology, and basic audio recording, as well as various courses from the Business Department.
As of Spring 2009, the Music Department has a new recording studio. Studio 301 utilizes the latest in engineering technology and is able to record a wide range of music in an isolated and professional environment.
