Develop or refresh your professional practice as a musician in preparation for work in the creative industries and/or further study including PhD.
You can opt for one of three pathways: Performance, Composition and Creative Audio and Music and Communities. Two complementary specialism modules within each pathway place contextual, aesthetic and theoretical study alongside the development of your own practice, familiarising you with recent developments in your specialist field, training you in essential technical, research and communication skills, while providing you with opportunities to put your expertise into practice.
In addition, the research project module provides opportunities for you to conduct your own self-directed projects and/or undertake work outside the university as part of a placement. The music business module affords you the chance to develop practical skills in project planning, and entrepreneurship. The final project allows you to undertake a sustained period of reflective study in a topic related to your chosen specialism, resulting in a dissertation or other text-based submission, a practical piece of education or outreach work, a portfolio of compositions, or a final recital.
