MTSU’s School of Music involves graduate music majors from across the nation and abroad in a strong community with tight bonds. Eight Master of Music specializations are offered, but the program is interdisciplinary, with a vocalist in a classroom beside a composer beside a musicologist, etc. Internationally renowned faculty members perform, compose, teach, conduct, publish, and present their research or music continually, from South Korea to Costa Rica to Rome. A low faculty-to-student ratio enables high-quality personalized instruction and collaboration. Instrumentalists are involved in coaching undergrads from the beginning, and graduate assistants enjoy opportunities reserved for doctoral students at other institutions. Students and faculty benefit from and contribute to Nashville’s nearby music industry and arts scene. Ensembles range from wind bands, orchestras, big bands, choral ensembles, and an opera company to a vocal jazz ensemble, myriad combos and chamber ensembles, an old-time music group, percussion ensemble, steel drum band, and a salsa band. Core classes are offered on evenings and weekends to accommodate those who work full-time.

MTSU awards the Master of Music (M.M.) degree with eight specializations offered: collaborative piano; conducting; jazz studies; music composition; music composition for contemporary media; music education; musicology; and performance.

Career

Alumni from the School of Music teach thousands of students every day in private studios and schools from kindergarten through university levels.

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance offers a full range of research degrees at MPhil and PhD level.

The courses we offer are:

* MPhil/PhD in Creative Practice: [Dance / Music / Collaborative Arts]
* MPhil/PhD in [Dance +/or Music] Science
* MPhil/PhD in [Dance +/or Music] Pedagogy

The Research Degree Programme includes an induction period, research skills training, seminars, and a requirement to present your research work on a regular basis. You will have one-to-one meetings with two allocated Research Supervisors.

The options in creative practice are suitable for those whose main focus is in composition, choreography, performance, or any related activity which embodies practical components, including those whose research incorporates interdisciplinary collaborations. In addition, historical research projects that utilise archive resources at Trinity Laban are also admissible under this option.

The options in science and pedagogy are available for those specialising in empirical approaches to topics in music and/or dance research and those who wish to concentrate on educational and pedagogical aspects.

Under normal circumstances, research degree candidates initially register for a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) programme, allowing them time to develop their research methodology and refine their topic. The projects will be assessed at a midway stage, at which time transfers to the PhD programme may be considered.

Registration can be either in full-time or part-time mode, and there are two intakes for the Research Degree Programme in each academic year: January and September. We also offer options for suitably experienced Staff Candidates to pursue doctoral study, and in appropriate cases, submission by prior publication is possible.

All candidates are required to submit a detailed research proposal, which outlines the area(s) of study and a description of how these correlate with existing areas of scholarship, both theoretical and practical. You will also be asked to state how the proposed research project is represented in terms of the research interests of Trinity Laban, and, if necessary, how the resources of the institution will be utilised.

There are two deadlines for submission of applications. They are 1 June for the September intake; and 1 October for the January intake.

Your application will consist of (up to) six elements: (1) an outline research proposal, (2) a summary CV, (3) certified copies of all degree certificates, (4) a copy of English Language certification (if required), (5) for proposals engaging in practical elements, a portfolio of your creative practice, and (6) the Trinity Laban RDP application form.

What You Study

During the first year of the MA Music Therapy course, you will establish a strong theoretical basis built up from a range of disciplines, with an emphasis on psychodynamic music therapy. Your competence in clinical practice and your understanding of therapeutic relationships will then be developed in years two and three through supervised placements. These will be integrated with your university based learning.

Uniquely, you will benefit from training alongside colleagues who are trainee art psychotherapists, and you will acquire insight and a shared understanding of the other creative modality, as a basis for future professional practice in multi-disciplinary teams.

Infant observation is an exciting feature of the first year, offering an informative and in depth grounding in human development that will inform for the rest of your study. Creative music skills sessions enable you to further develop musically.

In addition, throughout the MA Music Therapy course, multi-disciplinary study groups and events will provide insight into the principles, practices and effectiveness of other art modalities.

The course covers areas of instrumental and vocal composition, with the possibility of working with electronic, digital and multimedia resources. Read more
The course covers areas of instrumental and vocal composition, with the possibility of working with electronic, digital and multimedia resources. The course offers opportunities for you to work across these areas, or to specialise as appropriate. We support work in a wide range of styles and genres, whilst maintaining an experimental and exploratory approach. Delivery is tailored to your needs, centred around small-group seminars and tutorials. The course runs within a vibrant music department with a lively community of undergraduates, postgraduates and staff and excellent facilities.

During the course you will learn to:

• Develop your creative skills as a composer
• Develop technical skills where appropriate
• Comment critically upon your own and others’ work
• Explore current composition contexts and contemporary musical thought
• Collaborate with other creative artists
• Improve your professional skills
• Conduct academic research

COURSE STRUCTURE AND CONTENT

The course is available on either a full-time (typically one year) or part- time (typically two year) basis. The academic year is 12 months long and comprises three semesters: October-January; February-June; and June-October. Taught sessions are normally during the daytime, and access to facilities for directed study tasks is available both then and outside of working hours.

MODULES

Composition Techniques: This module is designed to offer you an opportunity to develop your practical and creative skills. Through a weekly seminar, you will be introduced to a range of composition techniques which will extend your current practice. These will focus on a mix of analyses of existing pieces, set reading, group discussion, and presentation of personal creative work. The seminars will be supported by a weekly individual tutorial in which you will discuss your current work with your tutor, leading to the presentation of a portfolio of pieces and a short composition commentary.

Context and Methodology: This module furnishes you with the skills necessary for self-directed research. It combines a study of research methodology with a study of context across the range of activities represented by all the MMus pathways – specifically of a set of paradigms that characterise the field’s current creative boundaries.

Commission Project: This module models the composition commission process, with you writing to brief for available resources, producing a composition realised in a public performance. In addition to writing a piece for the specified ensemble, there will be some additional tasks which will give you practical experience of running independent projects yourself. We will look at the commissioning process, making funding applications and submitting proposals to institutions such as festivals for consideration. We will also consider how to get the most from rehearsals and workshops when working with professional musicians, and effective ways to promote your work.

Collaborative and Interdisciplinary Practice: This module allows you to look beyond your core discipline and undertake interdisciplinary projects. A key part of the ethos of the course is a belief that the boundaries between areas of composition are becoming blurred, and many artists are working across these boundaries. This module provides a framework for collaborative work between students on the MMus pathways, and potentially with other artists and practitioners. Delivery will centre around small-group seminars (focused on particular interest areas), and assessment will be based on a portfolio of collaborative or interdisciplinary creative work and a self-evaluation/collaborative process document.

Major Project: This is the culmination of the MMus, and a chance for you to work in a research-oriented environment dependent largely on personal direction and working methods. You will use the skills acquired in your previous experience and the first two trimesters of the MMus to produce a substantial portfolio of work and a small-scale dissertation.

TEACHING METHODS AND RESOURCES

Modules are normally taught via lectures, seminars and practical workshops. A particular feature of the course is regular tutorial support. The Major Project is research-based and student-led, with supporting tutorials. Visiting speakers and other activities are arranged as appropriate. You are encouraged to make full use of library and IT resources within the University, and ample time will be scheduled in studios and workstation labs for independent study. At Newton Park, we have superb facilities including:

• networked music technology labs with highly specified workstations running core software including Pro Tools, Logic, MAX/MSP, Macromedia suites, Final Cut Studio etc.
• five purpose-built digital recording studios
• a variety of portable sound-recording equipment, digital cameras etc.
• a purpose built concert hall with excellent acoustics and PA
• 17 practice rooms, three with electronically variable acoustic
• large, well-stocked library of books, periodicals and CDs
• a wide range of medieval, Renaissance and Baroque instruments, and large collection of percussion and orchestral instruments
• a Javanese Gamelan
• the Michael Tippett Centre gallery space
• the University Theatre

ASSESSMENT METHODS

Assessment takes the form of individual assignments for each module. These generally consist of a portfolio of practical work with supporting written documentation. Context and Methodology and the Major Project also involve small-scale dissertations.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

MMus Songwriting is designed to enable students to develop a broad range of intellectual, practical and transferable skills. Given the practical nature of the course, it is envisaged that graduates may choose to work as a songwriter or in a related field such as music publishing. Others may use the critical skills they have acquired to work elsewhere in the music industry, perhaps for a record label or as a music journalist.
Upon graduation from the programme, it is the aim of course tutors that students will have acquired the core problem-solving, analytical and critical skills needed to adapt to the changeable and unpredictable work environment of the twenty-first century.

Learning and Teaching

The programme is delivered through a mixture of seminars, practical sessions and one to one supervision. Seminars provide opportunities for students to discuss and debate particular issues, and to present their own original work, informed by the knowledge that they have gained through independent study outside the programme’s formal contact hours. Practical sessions in areas such as studio or field recording techniques help to prepare students for their own independent work.

All students must undertake an independent project (dissertation,composition portfolio, or performance), which is developed with the help of one-to-one expert supervision. Finally, optional modules can be drawn from the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of Music or of other departments –these free-choice modules may involve other forms of staff-student contact, depending on the subject area. The Department actively promotes interdisciplinary approaches to the study of music and students are encouraged to engage with other disciplines in the humanities and sciences.

The contact hours experienced by each individual student will vary considerably, given a high degree of flexibility in the programme. Students will typically attend between 2 and 4 hours of seminars per week in term time, as well as additional practical sessions as appropriate. Individual supervision of dissertations, performance projects and composition portfolios amounts to an average of 6 hours spread over over the second and third terms.

Outside timetabled contact hours, students are also expected to attend research seminars, both student-led and those involving staff or guest academic speakers (typically 1-2 hrs each week). They must also undertake their own independent study to prepare for their classes and assessments, to broaden their subject knowledge and to prepare their dissertations or portfolios. Students are encouraged, as an integral part of their studies, to take advantage of other opportunities including participating in performance opportunities (including staff-led ensembles) and attending research and composition seminars, some of which are organised in conjunction with university research institutes.

There is a busy programme of musical performance, both within and outside the music department, which complements students’ academic programme by providing opportunities both to listen to and to perform a wide variety of music. The many musical ensembles to which students can contribute includes both independent societies (including orchestras, choirs, opera and musical theatre as well as a Javanese gamelan) and department-run ensembles such as the New Music Ensemble and Korean percussion group.
