Music Performance at University of West London - UCAS

Course summary

The BMus (Hons) Music Performance degree will help you develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence you need to become a professional classical or jazz musician at the highest level. You will be coached through individual lessons on your main instrument or vocal study in classical or jazz styles, although there are many opportunities to cross over genres and styles. You will develop flexible musicianship skills as you explore new techniques. Throughout your studies, you will be given opportunities to perform, both as a soloist and as an ensemble musician. You will take part in our many ensembles, from Camerata, our Symphony Orchestra, to Big Band, from our Musical Theatre Showband to student-led Jazz Ensembles, from the Opera Workshop to the Song Class, from our Percussion Ensemble to Chamber Music, Keyboard Skills or Jazz Workshop and many more. Alongside these practical elements, you will have the opportunity to study music history and music management, and to develop your analytical and critical abilities. These skills will enhance your career prospects as you enter the professional performance world. With London College of Music's busy diary of weekly concerts, performances, workshops, and masterclasses, you will be immersed in a vibrant cultural and musical life and given opportunities to network and collaborate with fellow students in composition, musical theatre, acting, dance, music technology, but also in film, graphic design, media and photography. Performance is at the heart of this course and you will have many opportunities to give concerts both within the University and in the wider community. In the final stages of your course, you will have the opportunity to pursue independent project work and showcase your talents as a performer or to undertake an educational placement. We offer high-quality performance facilities and recording studios and we are the first London University to receive all Steinway School status. Assessment includes course work, practical assessment, and a portfolio submission. You can also choose to be examined for the ALCM and LLCM performance diplomas while taking the course, so you will have professional accreditation in addition to a first degree..
