Course summary

This integrated degree allows you to develop key musical skills and experience to prepare you for university life and to study on our BMus Music or BMus Popular Music programmes.**Why study the BMus Music with Foundation Year at Goldsmiths**Do you want to study music at university but lack formal training or experience? This programme gives you the chance to gain key practical and theoretical skills and experience across music theory, performance, technology, composition and music history. **Make music in a vibrant London community**The Foundation gives you an opportunity to make music with students from across different degree programmes in a lively and vibrant departmental community. This community features everything from orchestral, jazz and pop ensembles to gamelan, mbira and improvising groups. You'll also have the opportunity to perform at open mics, student-run showcase and PureGold, our annual music festival that celebrates music created and performed at Goldsmiths. You'll be within easy reach of South East London's many venues during your time with us, as well as those across the capital, which provide a connection to music, art, dance, and theatre with an international focus, but also to local promoters, labels and the London-based music industry.**Prepare yourself to study at university with a lively mix of modules and dedicated support**In Year 0 you will study four core music modules going across music performance, analysis and technology. You also study two broad-based modules embedded in our music studios, the library and London cultural life in general. You will also have an assigned one-to-one instrumental or vocal tutor, and a personal tutor who will guide your study throughout the programme. This mix of practical and academic support is designed to help you make the leap into higher education with confidence.**Employment and Industry Links**The Goldsmiths Music department has strong links with the music industry, employing professional musicians, producers, and artists as guest speakers and as lecturers. We also present frequent, high-profile speakers from the music industry at our talks and events. Recently, these have included Dave Okumu, Nigel Godrich, Darkstar, Mica Levi, Matana Roberts, and Arts Council Music Relationship Managers.Beyond music, you’ll get a strong grounding in skills that are important to the world of work. Employers look for initiative-driven people who think critically about their actions, work well with others and adapt quickly and creatively to new ideas; all of these skills are developed as part of this wide-ranging integrated degree.
