You will study performance, composition, theory, musicianship and a broad overview of music history which serves as the foundation for future study and specialising in subsequent years. In the BMus Community Music, you will then specialise in growing your knowledge and skills in understanding communities and the role and potential of music in non-formal community environments, including a community placement in your final year. You will graduate well prepared for a career in community education or other work with music in communities, or to apply your skills in other settings in education, media, or the music business.
