Course summary

This programme supports your professional development, enabling you to tailor your studies on an individual basis to suit your needs, interests and experience, and work towards your personal learning, training or professional goals. It is particularly suitable for students who gained a first degree at a university and who wish to spend a year focusing on principal study development, or: students aspiring to study at postgraduate level who wish to first improve and consolidate their musical knowledge and abilities, or to develop their English language skills. Learning takes place through a combination of formal tuition, experiential learning and personal study. Instrumental, composition, or vocal tuition/supervision is the central element of the provision, with the Professional Studies module consisting of individual one-to-one learning, group tuition, rehearsals, workshops, seminars and masterclasses. You will develop and contextualize your individual tuition/supervision within a broad range of solo, small-group/chamber, and large-ensemble activities including the CoLab module.
