Course content

Our MMus Music (Performance) is distinctive in its range of musicological, compositional and performance-based elements. We offer performance tuition in a range of traditional and contemporary instruments, as well as conducting.

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

Our Department of Music and graduates of this course are internationally recognised theorists and practitioners in a wide range of musical activity and specialist areas.

What you will study

The Performance pathway of our MMus in Music will develop your professional expertise on your instrument or with your voice.

You will be tutored and assessed on one instrument (or voice) by visiting professionals of national and international standing who will guide you in consolidating and developing your technique, repertoire, knowledge and interpretative insight.

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

Study and work abroad

There may be opportunities to acquire valuable European experience by working or conducting research abroad during your degree or shortly afterwards. It is possible to do this in the summer period with an Erasmus+ grant working on your dissertation or as a recent graduate. In order to qualify your Erasmus+ traineeship must be a minimum of two months.

Short-course opportunities

We welcome applications from students who would like to study one module from this masters course.


Our Department of Music’s work achieves wide international circulation, both through established scholarly channels and, distinctively, through broadcast media (such as BBC TV, Channel 4, BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4, and National Public Radio in the USA). 

Our staff are much in demand for pre-concert talks at venues such as London’s South Bank and Barbican centres.

The research environment at Surrey is sustained by open discussion and debate, and through the regular airing of work-in-progress. Our work is strengthened by the ready input of our peers and research students at various stages allowing collective engagement to foster innovation.
