Community Music

This course is intended for students who wish to develop their skills and interests in a range of community settings and it draws upon many department specialisms including developments in education and disability arts, world music, theatre and technology. One year full-time or part-time (usually 2 years, but can be extended to 3 years). The term �community music� covers a wide range of activities. It covers musicians working outside formal settings like the concert hall in, for example, schools, prisons or hospitals; it covers the development of music in under-resourced areas and with disadvantaged people, and it covers the development of creative partnerships between people of different skills and cultures.

Entry requirements

Normally a first or upper second class degree in music although related disciplines will be considered.

Sponsorship information
