Course summary

Our Music degree will allow you to develop a wide range of creative abilities, whilst deepening your understanding of music and how it works. You’ll be able to explore different styles, genres and traditions, develop as a performer, and create your own music. You'll choose from a range of modules on subjects like popular music, experimental music, film and stage music, world music, music analysis, and early music, and can choose to keep your music studies broad or to specialise as a composer, musicologist or performer. Why study Music at Huddersfield? * You’ll study in state-of-the-art professional standard facilities, with access to a range of rehearsal spaces, industry-standard recording studios, two dedicated concert halls, and a large selection of equipment and instruments for you to use. * You’ll work with experienced tutors, internationally recognised researchers, and visiting industry professionals, including our team of leading instrumental and vocal teachers. * QS World University Subject Rankings 2021 ranked the University of Huddersfield 8th in the UK for 'Performing Arts' (https://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/university-subject-rankings/2021/performing-arts), and we were awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize for our ‘world-leading work to promote, produce and present contemporary music to an international audience' (https://www.hud.ac.uk/about/our-awards/official-honours/). * You'll be able to explore the latest new music in the annual Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (https://hcmf.co.uk/) and our label-defying Electric Spring Festival. * You’ll be encouraged to get involved in large and small ensembles, choirs and bands, including orchestra, symphonic wind orchestra, brass band, various classical and pop choirs, big band, funk, soul, folk and reggae groups, and a huge array of originals bands.
