Do you enjoy creating original music? Our Music Practice degree is a hands-on course which teaches you contemporary, new, experimental and fusion music forms, without relying on the approaches of traditional music education. It’s not just preparing people to be a recording artist; it is about preparing graduates for a range of careers: making music for audiences such as film, TV and video games, in addition to live music and professional recording. You will get to work on live projects from Year 1, and be encouraged to perform your own gigs and shows at various venues, and will also study relevant aspects of the music business such as strategies for marketing and working under commission. Students leave with the skills and knowledge to work in many areas in the industry. Whilst some students will go on to work creating music, others have gone on to roles in music and artist management - highlighting the range of transferable skills provided within the course. You could live, work and study abroad through schemes such as ERASMUS and ISEP. You will also be given the opportunity to visit local and regional venues and other arts facilities, meeting staff to discuss arts funding, running the resources and standards for public exhibition and performance.
