Course summary

About This Course

The MMus Performance course is ideal for those who are already proficient instrumental or vocal performers, and wish to refine their skills and extend their knowledge. On this programme you will refine your technical and interpretative skills, acquire a deeper understanding of contemporary and historical contexts relating to the performance of music, and develop skills and methodologies to undertake specialist research relating to your creative practice. You will also hone high-level transferable skills in critical thinking, conceptual thinking, problem solving, analysis, communication, self-direction and originality.

You will work closely with professional performers and established researchers, most of whom have international profiles. The School enjoys close links with industrial and third-sector partners such as Welsh National Opera, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Ensemble Cymru, and it is often possible for students to undertake a work placement during the course of the programme.

Careers

The MMus in Performance will widen your experience of performing and will develop your academic skills in relation to your practice. The programme will equip you for further study of performance and/or musicology at PhD level and beyond. It will also equip you with skills in creativity, self-discipline, analysis and communication which are valued by employers both within and outside the field of music. Recent graduates have pursued successful careers as professional performers, concert promoters, arts administrators, teachers, educational advisers, performers, and business people.
