The Music Technologies certificate program is offered exclusively online through a partnership between the Victoria Conservatory of Music and Camosun College. Designed for accomplished musicians, this program will allow you to acquire a basic competency in digital technologies applicable to modern practice in professional music-making. You will learn about digital notation, music sequencing, digital instrumentation, audio recording, mixing and editing.
The Music Technologies certificate is a series of courses which may be taken part-time over three semesters. You will study basic software and hardware technologies and explore practical applications of technologies.
This credential supplements and complements traditional practical or academic post-secondary music credentials and may be taken parallel to the Diploma in Music Performance program or other post-secondary music credential, or concurrent with active professional practice in music.
Upon successful completion of the certificate, you'll be well-prepared to apply basic music technologies to the active practice of music in a professional or educational setting, or to continue to the advanced study of individual technologies for personal or professional use.
What to expect

Over a series of courses, which may be taken part-time over three semesters, you'll learn to discuss and assess music technologies, including digital notation, music sequencing, digital instrumentation; audio recording, mixing and editing.
