Course content

This is a flexible programme which allows you to develop a deeper understanding of the theory and practice of teaching music to others. The course is intended for students with backgrounds in music or education (or both) who wish to develop skills and knowledge in both disciplines while exploring some of the ways in which the two fields are related. Students will develop their musical skills at an advanced level through performance, composition or musicology, while enhancing their knowledge and conceptual understanding of a range of issues relating to music education. Students will work closely with established researchers, most of whom have international profiles. The School of Music enjoys close links with industrial and third-sector parties such as the Venue Cymru, Ensemble Cymru and the BBC; in addition both the School of Music and the School of Education share well established partnerships with local primary and secondary schools, where many teachers of music are our graduates.
