The Course


The BMus combines focused study in jazz, with supporting academic studies. Every aspect is designed to help you towards realising your full musical potential, and to prepare you for your career in music. Our four-year Bachelor of Music (BMus) undergraduate degree programme attracts talented young musicians from across the world to study with today’s finest musicians and teachers. Principal Study includes individual lessons on your instrument or in composition, and a combination of masterclasses, performance classes, chamber music, concerts and everything else that you do in your specialism. The central component is to give you experience of performing in public concerts. Successful musicians have more than pure talent. In your career in music, you will need to be able to draw on a whole range of professional and entrepreneurial skills. You will need to recognise opportunities when you see them approaching, and to make the most of them. Professional Development - preparing for a life in music is at the heart of your study. We offer a wide range of activities, events, training sessions and modules for you to hone your skill in such things as studio recording and editing techniques, self-promotion and marketing, writing CVs, making funding applications, understanding the music business and working in arts management.
