Community Music is an exciting new pathway building on a number of years of successful musical engagement between our students, our music organisations and groups in the community.
You'll develop as a practising musician into a confident music leader through improvisation, creative workshops and placements.
The course explores the diverse sector of community music in non-formal settings including community singing, the justice system, early years, the disadvantaged and those with special educational needs. You'll develop a sense of where community music sits in relation to professional music leading, teaching and music therapy.
More about the Professional Placement Year
A Professional Placement Year (PPY), traditionally known as a sandwich year, is where a student undertakes a period of work with an external organisation for between 9-13 months. The placement occurs between the students' second and third years of undergraduate study. Students can engage in up to 3 placements to make up the total time and are required to source the placement(s) themselves with support from the Careers and Employability Team.
