Our MMus programme is distinctive in its range of musicological, compositional and performance-based elements.
You will benefit from the diversity of our research strengths, numerous ensemble performance opportunities and expertise in a range of musical fields, including contemporary music for the concert hall, popular music, film music, opera, acoustic, electronic and computer-generated music. Academics within our School and graduates of this programme are internationally recognised theorists and practitioners in a wide range of musical activity and areas of specialism.
The Conducting pathway is designed to develop conducting techniques to a professional level, and to enhance the understanding of relevant theoretical principles. It is only available part-time.
You will attend conducting classes (including score analysis and preparation, rehearsal techniques, gestural techniques, critical analysis of recordings) and contribute to rehearsals with the Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, ensembles and Chamber Choir.
Two compulsory research training modules are followed by a combination of specialism-related modules and optional modules.
