Course summary

What is Creative Music Practice MA?

This hybrid degree enables both recent graduates and established creatives and professionals to advance their skills, knowledge and understanding of a rapidly evolving global music ecosystem.

The course enables students with a range of musical disciplines - including business, production, sound, events, education, community practice and social enterprise - to develop and launch ambitious and sustainable projects.

Structured around your ambitions, the degree allows practitioners with diverse musical backgrounds and experience to work and develop alongside each other.

Study style

The programme has a strong practical focus to help you develop and prototype ideas and is underpinned by a set of critical and theoretical perspectives. Practical modules will help you progress your core production skills, while embedding project work within commercial and critical frameworks.

This developmental and explorative work then feeds into the Creative Music Project - where you’ll negotiate and construct a significant creative and commercially viable music-related business project that’s both market-ready and underpinned by critical analysis.
