MMus Performance


Course Description

The MMus Performance programme aims to introduce students to a wide range of musical studies at an advanced level, to develop presentational skills, technical proficiency and interpretation in musical performance, and to encourage an interest in performance research to enable students to enhance their musical and artistic development. Students take a compulsory Final Recital module, supported by one-to-one specialist teaching, performance classes and masterclasses. The compulsory Concerto/Song-Cycle/Extended work module, also supported by dedicated performance classes and one-to-one lessons, allows students to explore the particular challenges of performing a large-scale musical structures. Applied Performance Studies allows students to pursue distinctive individual performance projects such as ensemble work, the organisation and delivery of a specific concert event, or the exploration of pedagogic interests. In exceptional circumstances, the 30-credit Instrumental/Vocal Recital represents another option, although here students have to demonstrate M level performing ability on a different instrument/voice from that of the 60-credit compulsory module.
