Course summary

Why choose this course?

The MMus in Music is aimed at graduates from Music or Popular Music courses and those already active - or starting to become active - in the professional realm.

This Masters’ level course offers a dual emphasis on Music Performance and Music Performance Studies, aiming to develop your knowledge and critical awareness of current trends and opportunities in the professional practice of music and musical performance. Areas of focus may include:

  • music performance
  • composition and songwriting
  • analysis and musicology
  • musical leadership, direction and conducting

The MMus in Music has a strong focus on practical performance-based work as well as equipping you with the analytical and writing skills that are relevant to the Music Industry and pedagogy.

You will be encouraged and be able to focus on issues of technique in the performance and interpretation of music from both practical and theoretical perspectives, enabling you to analyse and reflect on your preferred approach and cultural ‘take’. The application and development of your interests and skills will ultimately determine the precise nature of your degree and its usefulness to you as a practising musician, teacher, researcher, etc.
