Course summary

This course allows you to study Music and Musicianship as a single honours degree, giving you an in-depth knowledge of the subject.This undergraduate programme offers each music student a course that develops musical knowledge, understanding, creativity and the rigorous musicianship skills needed to be an effective and employable musician in the twenty-first century. You will be encouraged to develop your musicianship in a practical and theoretical way, giving you an excellent preparation for a range of musical careers and a springboard to further study.Through a supportive learning environment, music students are encouraged to develop their musicianship in a holistic way in both practical and theoretical modules as well as applying their skills in the broader musical life of the university and within the community. This engagement with music-making, together with the security of a strengthening theoretical and analytical knowledge of music equips the music student at BGU to take their place in a wide range of professional contexts. This course is an excellent preparation for a range of musical careers and as a springboard to further study.There is no one-size-fits-all method of teaching at BGU – we shape our methods to suit each subject and each group, combining the best aspects of traditional university teaching with innovative techniques to promote student participation and interactivity. You will be taught in a variety of ways, from lectures, tutorials and seminars, to practical workshops, coursework, work-based placements or even field visits. Small group seminars and workshops will provide you with an opportunity to review issues raised in lectures, and you will be expected to carry out independent study.We recognise that individuals come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, so we use a variety of assessment strategies on our courses. Assessments on this course will take a number of different forms including assessed musical performances in solo and ensemble contexts, prepared student presentations, portfolios of notated and recorded compositions and arrangements, essays, reflective reports along with formal written exams and ‘take-away’ timed exam papers. Preparations for such assessments will be supported by regular formative assessment during taught sessions as an integral means of developing confidence, monitoring progress and establishing readiness for assessment.This course will equip you with a range of valuable skills to take forward into your musical career. Possible future career pathways for Music and Musicianship graduates may include Classroom Teaching, Performance, Community Music, Music Therapy, Workshop Coordination, Conducting and Music Management. You will also develop skills essential to becoming a successful and employable music teacher, with the specific requirements of PGCE Secondary Music courses having been carefully integrated into this course.Find out more: https://www.bishopg.ac.uk/course/music/
