Course summary


The focus will be on your practice and you’ll push stylistic and technological boundaries while developing your work and carving out your musical identity. You can choose to specialise in performance, music pedagogy, sound art or musicology, or work in a mixture of these disciplines.

You will:

  • Cover a range of musical styles including avant garde, classical, jazz, folk, blues and rock to develop a broad understanding of music.
  • Play regularly in ensembles, including vocal groups, laptop orchestras and Taiko drumming.
  • Benefit from guest speaker artists and ensembles; recent visitors include Graham Fitkin (composer), Kenny Werner (piano), Kevos (ensemble) and Adrian Utley (Portishead).
  • Do a three-month placement or internship in your third year that can take any form, from shadowing a professional composer to working with a London orchestra.
  • Take advantage of our prestigious international exchange partners including Sarah Lawrence College NYC, La Salle, Nagoya University, Griffith University and Helsinki Metropolia University.

Assessment methods

  • Assessment is a combination of practical exams and coursework.
