The Foundation in Sound and Music provides an in-depth preparation for a diverse range of careers in the recording industry.
The programme consists of three semesters dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of music, ear training, keyboard harmony, and MIDI programming. Students learn basic composition, recording, editing, mixing, and production using digital and analogue equipment.
The University's Sound and Music Design Academy houses the best talent, facilities, and recording equipment to match the industry demands. We have fully-equipped recording studios for digital and analogue sound production, use the latest sound editing software for post-production audio engineering, and employ the best talents to guide our students through it.
Public and private organisations regularly seek to collaborate with us in producing songs that are catchy and iconic. These collaborations give our Foundation in Sound and Music students valuable industry experience even before graduation.
Some of our most memorable and meaningful songs produced are:
- Let's Heal the World in partnership with UNICEF,
- Malaysia Inovatif for the 2010 Malaysian Year of Innovation, and
- Be Smart for the Royal Malaysia Police to promote awareness against cybercrimes.
