Music Performance

MMusPerf Music Performance
The MMusPerf Programme attracts instrumentalists and vocalists who have achieved a high level of technical and musical skills in their undergraduate studies.

This two-year Master programme provides an opportunity for students to further consider artistic and technical considerations in their instrument or voice in preparation for a sustainable and fulfilling professional career in music.

We offer an exceptionally high level of one-to-one contact with the principal study teacher, namely 2 hours of lessons per week, allowing our emerging artists the opportunity to focus on key areas of development.

Master students have performance opportunities in both solo and Chamber Music recitals, competitions, and professionally run orchestra or opera performances as appropriate to their interests. This regular platform experience hones performing skills and techniques, bringing the work in the teaching studio and practice room to life. Weekly performance classes and regular masterclasses from a range of visiting artists further encourage students to develop a distinctive artistic voice, one which can communicate effectively with sound fundamentals.

Those students who wish to include composition or a second instrument into their principal study may do so. RIAM will work with you to divide those principal study hours between faculty and will adjust assessments to work best for your interests.
