Course content

  • One-to-one tuition with expert tutors, plus weekly performance classes and workshops.
  • Wide range of ensemble opportunities, working and performing with other students.
  • Excellent facilities at Newton Park Campus – Michael Tippett Centre, library and IT resources.

This course gives you, as an instrumental/vocal performer, the skills and opportunities to develop your individual and ensemble skills to a high level. You’ll undertake four modules over two trimesters and a double module in your third trimester (final recital).

You may explore areas of your own interest, which may relate to staff specialisms, such as opera (Garth Bardsley), early music and music of the Georgian period (Dr Matthew Spring), and romantic and early twentieth-century music (Dr Charles Wiffen), or piano skills and improvisation (Thomas Whorley).
