Course description

***Manchester Metropolitan University is currently undertaking a review of long-term academic provision on the Cheshire campus. Once a preferred option has been agreed, there is the possibility that some courses may not run. While the review is ongoing, the University will continue to accept applications for courses delivered at Cheshire and starting in September 2017 but will not process those applications until more is known in respect of the future of the campus. We are unlikely to be able to give clarity around the future of specific courses until Spring 2017.*** From the very beginning of your course you will be actively creating, performing and discussing music representative of the many styles and forms available to the contemporary musician. In addition to your core studies, you will be able to select areas of study from popular music, jazz, electronic composition and recording techniques. Throughout the course you will have the opportunity to engage with our well-equipped practice and performance spaces and state-of-the-art technology including computer workstations and an industry standard Solid State Logic AWS Series mixing console. Our specialist tutors provide high-quality vocal and instrumental tuition and there are many performance opportunities for soloists and ensembles. We encourage links with the music industry, schools and the community both through taught units and negotiated and individually tutored work. In the final year, you may elect to take work-related placements. This course supports you in emphasising those aspects of music that best suit your own aptitudes, interests and career aspiration.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Music is a popular degree subject and a little over 4,600 degrees were awarded to UK graduates in 2012. Most were working after six months – but postgraduate study (usually continuing with music) is quite common and a lot of graduates go into music teaching, often as freelance or travelling music teachers of particular instruments. Obviously, many music graduates get work as musicians as well, or work as sound recordists and in similar technical roles. Music is important in advertising and so a lot of graduates go into this industry and management is also a popular job role for music graduates. Because a lot of musician work is temporary or freelance, the most common way for new graduates to get jobs in music is through their own contacts, so learning how to make good use of networks and contacts might help in your career.
