There are many examples of 21st century musicians who are able to cross from one type of music to another and draw upon a wide range of contrasting practice in their work. At York St John we believe the study of music should be eclectic and embrace the widest variety of musical genres; this is not a course about classical music or rock music, it is a degree programme which allows you to experience a broad spectrum of musical activity in which you will study and perform music of all types. Our degree provides a relevant, contemporary and challenging programme of study which crosses musical boundaries and equips you with the diverse range of skills which are essential for today’s musicians. Music pervades every aspect of our culture and it surrounds us as we go about our daily lives. We live in an age when there is easy access to music from all times, in all styles and from all around the world. Technological developments make it possible for us to create new music at the touch of a button and as the barriers between genres are broken down, composers and performers have access to new audiences. As a subject, music offers unique opportunities to engage in new creative projects and to work with young people and community groups. The teaching of music is led by practice, whether in performing, composing, listening or understanding and you will gain considerable insight from this ‘hands on’ approach to learning. We are looking for open minded, creative musicians with strong practical skills and the potential to succeed.
Modules may include: Level 1: Vox; Drumming; Music Skills; Perspectives on Music. Level 2: Ensemble Performance; Improvisation; Composition; Solo Performance; Film Music; Music in Education & Lifelong Learning; Community Music; Experiments in Music; Sounds New Approaching the Contemporary.
