MMus Performance (Work-Based Learning)


Course Description

This course is designed for students working primarily as instrumentalists, composers or conductors. Attendance for lectures is as limited as possible, with the remaining tuition delivered by one-to-one contact time through the tutorial system and via the e-learning platform.

The course aims to equip you with a breadth of skills and information enabling you to develop your careers within today's music industry. Provision is made for students' professional work to form part of the assessment process, particularly with regard to practical components of the course.

The course is structured around the needs of the professional performing musician. Central to this is the further development of advanced, technically assured and artistically informed performance skills. These are supplemented by more narrowly defined skills, which relate to and arise directly from each chosen area of specialist work.

In addition to these core modules, students will have the opportunity to select three optional modules, ranging from practical based areas such as composition, orchestration and arranging, transcription and chamber music modules, through to theory-based modules in ensemble management:

• Instrumental Studies One and Two
• Postgraduate Conducting Studies One and Two
• Research Methods
• Dissertation
• Negotiated Work-based Learning
• Composition
• Performance Project
• Orchestration and Arranging
• Live Event Management
• Chamber Music Project
• 2nd Study Conducting

Career and study progression

The course is aimed at students who are already working primarily as an instrumentalist or conductor in the music industry, but will enable you to progress in your chosen field.

After completing the course students can progress to the DMus in Performance.
