Course summary

During your studies, you will develop your performance skills through expert one-to-one tuition with the same specialists who teach on our degree programme. The course will teach you about interpretation and guide you on how to practice effectively and handle performance anxiety. You will build your knowledge of music theory, and the study of harmony will be delivered in a fresh, creative way using the guitar. Your creativity will develop through improvisation, taking inspiration from the music you perform.Our Foundation Year introduces you to music in the everyday environment of the home, asking how music is made and consumed, and its function in society. We explore the most personal side of music – how emotions, sexuality, identity and personality are shaped by music.Whether you are a complete beginner or a highly accomplished pianist, you will develop piano playing skills needed for a career in music.Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, you can automatically continue your studies on the BA (Hons) Music degree where you will build upon the knowledge gained in this initial year. The Foundation Year gives you the space to focus on the one subject, music, developing the skills and knowledge you need within a Humanities environment.
