This course combines academic education with professional training to develop your performing and musicianship skills, as well as your analytical and critical abilities. This is enhanced by teaching that is focused on developing your technical knowledge and your music production skills. You will have a combination of individual lessons on a main instrumental or vocal study principally in Classical or Jazz styles. You can specialise in particular areas, but the course also helps you to develop flexible musicianship skills and affords the opportunity to explore new styles and techniques. Teaching and learning is very practical and includes: • masterclasses • tutorials • lectures • a wide range of ensemble work. The course also includes supporting study of music history and analysis as well as Music Technology. We will provide the technical knowledge to record, capture and produce music, while our specialist staff will help you to develop advanced skills on your chosen instrument. We aim to develop your understanding of contemporary sound, including pre and post-production, plus all the essential theory and techniques to collaborate, record and network with a multitude of students from a range of disciplines across our community of study. You will also perform in concerts and ensembles.
