Bath Spa University


This course is aimed at performers with a strong interest in live or recorded performance in jazz or classical styles, wishing to develop and extend their repertoire and experience; there is an emphasis on developing high-level solo performance skills alongside ensemble and collaborative activities; there are modules which involve producing a collaborative project, developing research skills and academic writing, and a final project, which normally culminates in a public performance. Performances take place in major venues in Bath and elsewhere in the UK, and there are opportunities to work with our partners at Bath International Music Festival, as well as opportunities to perform concertos with university orchestras.

Modules include: performance 1; context and methodology; performance 2; collaborative and interdisciplinary practice; major project.
