MMus Performance; Composition; Jazz; Creative Practice

Course Description

Our MMus programme is designed for those who wish to build on previous studies or experience in order to develop their skills as professional musicians: both performers and composers. It aims to equip students with the necessary musical skills, insight and experience required by the contemporary profession in its widest sense but with a focus on the Western Classical and Jazz traditions.

Programme Content

• All students receive one-to-one and group principal study tuition as part of the Professional Studies module (http://www.trinitylaban.ac.uk/professionalstudies), as well as participating in department specific classes. You may also study related or supporting instruments as relevant (e.g. jazz, doubling instruments, early music). Various pathways (e.g. single reed doubling and chamber music) are also available for this module.
• All students take a Research Methods module which provides a strong foundation for Masters-level critical thinking to underpin all aspects of the programme.
• Students participate in department specific classes which are designed to give further support to students' progress as performers or composers
• The programme offers a range of Specialist Options, which will enable you to explore subjects appropriate to your developing artistic profile and enhance your employability in the professional world.
• The programme also offers a wide variety of performance opportunities focusing on skills applicable to both traditional and less traditional ensembles, and community and outreach work.
• The MMus programme also provides access to Trinity Laban's unique Collaboration Lab (http://www.trinitylaban.ac.uk/colab), an exceptional learning space in which you will be encouraged to take creative risks and explore the boundaries of your art form in collaboration with staff and students from across Trinity Laban.

For more details please see the Programme Specification on our website.

Progression Routes

Graduates of the MMus lead the way in developing new approaches to musical performance, composition and research and can be found in leading roles across the music profession worldwide. Several go on to take the Postgraduate Artist Diploma. The pathway in Creative Practice acts as a specific stepping stone for students wishing to progress to the MFA Creative Practice.

"I was looking for something to kick-start my composition work, and to give me the stimulus of encountering new forms of music, and other composers. The MMus course has been ideal, and I have found the open and creative attitude at Trinity a real delight.

"As a mature student, I found no difficulty at all in fitting in. In particular, with its focus on collaboration with other professions, the Professional Skills elective has proved an ideal opportunity to learn how to work with a profession which fascinates me - choreography. The partnership with Laban provided an ideal framework for trying out approaches which will be useful in future."
Alan Taylor, MMus (Composition)
