Today's musicians lead diverse lives, from writing and recording film scores, to teaching songwriting and playing gigs. Our course is aimed at anyone who is excited by this variety, ready to turn their talent into a career by developing new skills and embracing the vibrant life of freelance music making. Music in the 21st century is adventurous, constantly pushing boundaries and incorporating new technologies. Our degree embraces that spirit of adventure by giving you the widest possible scope for exploring music in all its forms. We focus on the music of today and tomorrow, creating a supportive environment for you to research new ideas, cross stylistic borders, augment and hone a high quality skillset, and work collaboratively with a wide range of people.
Year 1: In your first year, you'll work on the fundamentals that all professional musicians need to learn, from performance practice and ways of listening, to theory and notation. You'll work in a broad range of musical styles, and receive a generous amount of one-to-one lessons. Year 2: The second year comes with greater freedom as you begin to specialise in the areas that excite you. Options include Film Music or Music and Dance, which give you the opportunity to collaborate with students from other courses. Your one-to-one lessons will, of course, continue. Year 3: Making the most of the course's flexibility, in the third year you'll undertake off-campus work, a major practical project and a dissertation – all within your chosen field of specialism.
