Course summary

This degree prepares students to run their own private studio and to teach in a variety of one-to-one and group settings in schools. Music graduates today embark on portfolio careers and nearly every professional performer also teaches. In this degree students explore the technique and mechanics for their own instrument and how this works physically with various learners, from young children's changing bodies to adults who have more established muscular routines. They move on to research the various graded examination systems across classical and popular music and how music is taught in the National Curriculum, both for mainstream and special needs children. Learning about teaching would be nothing if students did not learn a new instrument themselves. Everyone learns as a beginner and has to sit a mock Grade 1 exam and the experience of a singer learning the violin can be revelatory, as suddenly the instrument is not within, but external to the body. This experience coincides with preparing assembly presentations and workshops for KS1 and KS2 children. Going to a variety of schools gives the university students a rounded view of different contexts they can work as visiting private teachers.

Academically, students learn about the psychology of learning and teaching. Teaching lessons in music is about performance skill and technique, but it includes a great deal of people skills too. The Music with teaching degree puts our graduate’s leaps ahead and ready to take their places in today's competitive professional world.
