Course description

The Actor Musicianship programme offers distinctive, practical, Drama UK accredited training for actors who have musical skills. It is taught by the same team as the Acting programme, and shares the same core disciplines and approaches to performance. You will be guided by experienced staff, including industry professionals, who will help you to develop the skills of the actor musician though practical classes in movement, voice and approaches to text and character. You will also be developing your existing musical skills for use within a variety of performance contexts. Perhaps most importantly, you will explore how these skills interconnect. Your actorâ??s imagination will be developed to help you create, lead and make music, whilst acting classes will explore the musicality of performance.

Modules

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Drama is a very popular degree subject – in 2012, over 5,800 degrees were awarded to UK graduates. With so many graduates around, jobs in acting are very sought-after and often gained through personal contacts, so be prepared to practise your people skills. But there are lots of roles in the arts for drama graduates, in direction, production, design, journalism and PR. The skills taught by drama courses can be useful elsewhere – a lot of the economy can use people who can perform and present in front of others, and so drama graduates can be found in teaching, management, advertising, project and events organisation and community work. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common, as are what is termed 'portfolio careers' – having several part-time jobs or commissions at once – over one in ten drama graduates last year had more than one job on the go at once after six months.
