The new BMus (Hons) Popular Music is the UK’s only 4 year programme for popular musicians situated in a world-class Royal conservatoire. Our mission is to educate, train and develop you to have a successful, sustainable career as a professional musician. The programme provides intensive training for instrumentalists and singers with a high level of performing ability who intend to work as freelance musicians, bands and artists in the popular music industry, or as a preparation for postgraduate study. The curriculum seeks to develop your musical identity through creative composition, production and performance based modules that enable you to be not only a high quality performer, but also an original artist in your own right. We view all of our students as professional musicians from the outset and actively encourage and support you in establishing your career alongside your studies.
