FAQs — the process of education

Who will be teaching the courses?

All the Future Media Academy’s teachers are well-known musical artists. This is unique among music academies. We only work with established musicians who have extensive technical and commercial knowledge. Respected professionals who can guide our students through the entire process of succeeding as a music producer.

What contact do I have with the teachers?

All our courses are designed so that students have a lot of time and direct contact with the teachers. Alongside lectures this includes open discussions, Q and As and getting comprehensive feedback and support on their projects.

A 2 or 3 week course would typically involve the following teacher/student contact:

  • — Lectures (live webinars or recorded webinars) given by the teacher.
  • — Group discussions and Q and A between with students and teacher.
  • — Access to assignments from all the students in the group, and visibility of the teacher’s feedback.
  • — Additional course materials such as links, tutorials and documents that are uploaded to the course portal by the teacher.
  • — Communication with the Manager of the Future Media Academy for advice and queries.

How long are the course materials available for?

All course materials are available to students during the period when the course is running and one week after.

What time do I need to put aside for studying?

The lecture times are available on the individual course pages. The more time students can devote to their studies, the better. Students are responsible for managing their own study time and can do so whenever they like.

What type of courses are available?

What is the structure of the online courses?

Each lecture is hosted by the teacher in the form of a live webinar and is also recorded for students to refer back to later. The content of course is available on the program.

During the webinar, students are able to ask questions which the lecturer will either answer during the webinar or soon after, depending on the lecture format.

After each lecture, the teacher will give an assignment. Each student’s assignment will be reviewed and the results posted on the course portal. It’s at the teacher’s discretion to decide if it’s necessary for the students to complete all the course assignments.
