We want to ensure you become who you want to be musically and can make your living working with music, whether performing, creating or producing or a combination of these. Our Music courses help you develop your skills in popular, contemporary and commercial music and equip you with the essential business skills to succeed. You’ll develop a broad range of skills across performance, composition, song writing and production. Through two specialist degree options, you can choose the degree that best fits with your ambition from day one. They are Music or Music (Song Writing & Performance) and Music (Song Writing and Production). You get your music in front of an audience through frequent gig nights, regular festivals and industry showcases. Aside from the business, you also learn how to match your music with an audience. You can collaborate with students from other courses, for example: recorded and live sound, lighting design and management students.
