Performance MMus

Course Description

This course allows students to specialise in Solo Performance with further training in up to three complimentary areas.

The programme is divided into two parts: two semesters of taught study (Part I, 120 credits) and a substantial recital prepared over the summer (Part II, 60 credits).

An additional 40 credits will be gained through submissions in other performance-related fields through either one Major Open Submission (WXM4046, 40 credits) or two Minor Open Submissions (WMP4047 and WMP4048, 20 credits each). These area available in the following subject areas:

Historical Performance Practice
Historical Musicology
Techniques of Vocal/Instrumental Teaching
