Course summary

Studying music at King’s enables you to immerse yourself in the world of sound, stretching across the centuries and around the globe. Today, music is an intricately global cultural expression, and we pride ourselves not only on the range and diversity of the modules we offer, but also on the diversity of the approaches we employ, including compositional creativity, close reading of scores, aural training, contemporary critical theory, historical scholarship and ethnographic studies.There is plenty of opportunity at King’s to participate in concerts and chamber music groups. You may audition for the KCL Symphony Orchestra (KCLSO), participate in various other student-led ensembles such as the Jazz Society Big Band or the Modern Music Society, or sing in the Chapel Choir. Our students often gain leadership experience in these performance groups. Concerts take place throughout the year.You are eligible to take performance modules as long as you have ABRSM Grade 8 in your chosen instrument or voice.
