Start dates & study options
When studying my undergraduate degree I gained a passion for classical singing. I wanted to learn more about the art of performing so that I could then pass this on to others through teaching and conducting, as well as applying what I would learn to my own performances.
When I was applying for MA courses I looked at Leeds because of the area that it is situated in, having the city life, but also having countryside only a short drive away. I was also interested in Leeds because of its ties with Opera North.
I enjoyed the performance classes, but I think the module Applied Performance was my favourite as you were free to choose what pieces to study. I chose to use the Leeds University Union Opera Society production of The Magic Flute for this module, playing the role of ‘Pamina’. It was so much fun to be a part of and I got to meet new people, from beyond the music department.
