Course content

A conductor puts themselves at the heart of a musical performance.

Our MMus Music (Conducting) is distinctive in its range of musicological, compositional and performance-based elements.

You will benefit from the diversity of our research strengths, our many ensemble performance opportunities and our expertise in a range of musical fields. These include contemporary music for the concert hall, popular music, film music, opera, acoustic, electronic and computer-generated music. 

Academics within our Department of Music and graduates of this course are internationally recognised theorists and practitioners in a wide range of musical activity and areas of specialism.

What you will study

The Conducting pathway of our MMus Music is designed to develop your conducting techniques to a professional level, and to enhance your understanding of relevant theoretical principles. This course is only available part-time.

You will attend conducting classes, including score analysis and preparation, rehearsal techniques, gestural techniques and critical analysis of recordings. You will also contribute to rehearsals with the Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Chamber Choir and other ensembles.

Your two compulsory research training modules will be followed by a combination of specialism-related modules and optional modules.
