We offer places on the basis of our assessment of the student's quality, potential and commitment, and their ability to benefit from the course. Normally, but not invariably, a student will have a first degree. Applications are invited from candidates with a range of academic disciplines and from a variety of national backgrounds. Applicants should submit a DVD recording with their application, comprising two contrasting works. Applicants should also submit an example of written work, particularly where this relates to your own practice, focusing on technical and/or aesthetic concerns.
Months of entry
This course is aimed at performers with a strong interest in live or recorded performance within jazz or classical styles, wishing to develop and extend their repertoire and experience. There is an emphasis on developing high-level solo performance skills alongside ensemble and collaborative activities. There are modules which involve producing a collaborative project, developing research skills and academic writing, and a final project, which will normally culminate in a public performance.
