Course summary

Overview

Do you want to develop your performance skills or music teaching practice? Or are you passionate about pursuing a performance-based research project? Or maybe you would like to perform with industry professionals (e.g. from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra)? Or to professionalise your current profile as a musician and/or teacher?

The MMus Performance at the University of Liverpool offers:

  • Development of solo and ensemble performance
  • Development of teaching practice (solo, group and complementary approaches)
  • Development of research skills and research projects appropriate to performance
  • Opportunities to perform with members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra for performance assessments
  • Opportunities to do other performance work beyond standard recitals (e.g. recording and videos).

In addition to your performance study, you'll explore approaches towards and techniques for teaching Music, and develop the skills to analyse performances of a wide variety of repertoires, enabling you to question assumptions about performances made by performers today.

Why Music?

Strong research culture

Across the department, our research activity has a strong interdisciplinary nature and is concentrated in three cross-cutting areas:-

  • Critical and Contextual Approaches
  • Creative Practice
  • Media and Industry Studies.

Career prospects

Students from the taught postgraduate programmes in the department of Music have gone on to a wide range of careers, including various positions in the music industries, museums, arts administration, journalism, publishing, and teaching. PhDs in Music are in full-time lectureships around the world (e.g. Canada, Sweden). This programme has been recognised by the AHRC as appropriate training for advanced research, and prepares students for a level of further training equivalent to doctoral study.
