The MA in Music and Management at the University of Leeds offers a practical approach, which enables you to try out projects on your own. In my opinion this is more valuable in respect to future jobs that will require practical working experience.
As the School of Music and the University have a great variety of music ensembles, bands, orchestras and choirs, I was lucky enough to be in a Project Choir at the School of Music and also in Leeds Baroque Orchestra and Choir. It was wonderful for me to partake in not just the theoretical, but also practical side of England’s long choral tradition. I felt how deeply music can connect people and deepen friendships, regardless of who you are or where you come from.
Since graduating, I've got a job as an assistant to the head of the museum “Beethoven-Haus” in Bonn which is Ludwig van Beethoven’s birthplace! Having made real working experience in England (with Cheltenham Music Festival and Cambridge Early Music) combined with a long-term development in English language was a great advantage within the application process.
I am very grateful for all the experiences, all I have learnt and all the friends, tutors (and places) I have met on the way over the last two years who were just wonderful and always supportive. They have made my time so very special and I already look forward to coming back to visit my ‘English home’ again!
