Course summary

Overview

Composition is a specialisation available in our suite of Music research degrees (MPhil, PhD). This programme offers an opportunity to study with leading composers with internationally regarded expertise and experience in contemporary music composition. It aims to offer knowledge and expertise for a career in professional music composition. Composition students also get to hear their music rehearsed and recorded in workshops with professional performers and ensembles. This offers an unmatched experience of working with practitioners to realise your compositional ideas in a constructive and friendly atmosphere. Composition seminars take place regularly (either weekly or fortnightly) through the academic year. Aspects of compositional technique, new repertoire and interviews with visiting composers will be offered as opportunities arise. There will also be opportunities to conduct your music with the University’s Contemporary Music Group and visiting professional ensembles.
