Course summary

Music at Cambridge

Over recent decades many of the most significant figures in British music have studied or taught at Cambridge: composers such as Judith Weir, Errollyn Wallen, Thomas Adès and Academy Award-winning film composer, Steven Price; performers like Joanna MacGregor and Mark Padmore; conductors including John Eliot Gardiner and Nicholas Collon; writers and broadcasters, including Sara Mohr-Pietsch (Radio 3) and crossover artists such as Delia Derbyshire and Clean Bandit.

Our undergraduate course has a strong academic component, particularly focusing on history, analysis, composition (including screen and media composition) and performance, but also offering a range of other topics (see the course outline).

Careers

Music graduates are extremely attractive to employers and can follow a career in a wide range of fields thanks to the transferable skills they acquire on our course. In recent years, graduates have pursued successful careers in publishing and the media, academia, arts administration, banking, law, public service and the charity sector.

Many of our students do enter the music profession in one guise or another. Recent graduates include pianist Tom Poster, Royal Harpist Anne Denholm, composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad, jazz musician Misha Mullov-Abbado, and record producer and audio engineer Myles Eastwood.
