Become part of a creative and innovative community of performers, composers, songwriters, producers, music psychologists, and writers about music.
To thrive in today’s fast-moving music culture, you’ll need a wide range of musical and technical skills, and to be able to work confidently with others across a range of professional contexts.
You’ll study music in three ways. First, you’ll have the time and resources to pursue your creative endeavours – whether that’s as a performer on stage or in the studio, a composer, a songwriter, a music technologist, a community arts practitioner, or an events organiser.
Your practical work will culminate in a large-scale project that will be a stepping stone into your chosen career.
Second, you’ll study a range of technical skills to enable you to realise your best work. Core skills might include project management, music theory and analysis, fluency with key pieces of music software, research skills, curriculum design, and festival programming.
Third, you’ll receive robust training in the critical and contextual dimensions of the study of music, working with expert staff to explore, interrogate and challenge received wisdom about the value, status and significance of music in our society.
