The MFA Creative Practice programme is designed for graduates who wish to develop their musical and creative practice through an extended period of postgraduate study leading to a significant creative output (performance or composition based) by the conclusion of the degree.
• The first half of the programme (two years full-time, four years part-time) follows the MMus programme: http://www.trinitylaban.ac.uk/study/music/master-of-music-mmus
• The third full-time year (or fifth and sixth years for part-time) comprises a dedicated programme of independent learning via practice-based activity supported by Principal Study lessons and academic supervision.
• You will develop an extended project, or series of projects, during the final third of your MFA studies which investigates particular aspects of creative musical practice in discussion with a dedicated supervisor. Your work will have the potential to yield a substantial area of research, and is likely to culminate in the form of performance(s), a lecture demonstration, or a mixed mode project.
