Music

This MA is an opportunity to challenge yourself academically and musically, while developing a specialism in a research-led university environment. We place an emphasis on flexibility and student choice and have designed a programme that allows you to personalise your course of study. A significant proportion of module choices will be determined by your abilities and interests so that you can tailor your programme of study to best meet your career goals and ambitions. This programme is ideal for performers, composers and music scholars with an interest in developing their area of expertise, learning valuable skills, and exploring a relevant course of study. You will have the opportunity to follow one of three pathways: Performance, Composition and Music Studies. Performance: This pathway is designed for performers who are committed to improving their skills as instrumentalists and/or singers, both as soloists and in ensembles. Composition: This pathway will equip composers with the techniques and practical experience to pursue their own creative goals to a professional level with confidence and imagination. Music Studies: This pathway is designed to allow students to develop a solid basis in research techniques and methods in the fields of Historical Musicology, Music Analysis, Popular Music, and Ethnomusicology, whilst exploring different music styles and traditions in their historical, analytical, and theoretical perspectives.
