Course content

As a vocational training in instrumental or vocal performance skills, in orchestral performance skills, or in skills relevant to a development of musical theatre performance, the Advanced Performance programme is intended as a preparation for employment or further advanced training at postgraduate level.

This one year programme can be taken as either a non credit bearing Advanced Performance Course, or as a Postgraduate Certificate in Performance. All students focus their study on a specialist area of instrumental, vocal, orchestral, or musical theatre work. In particular the programme offers orchestral players an opportunity to engage in a course of study offering significant levels of orchestral rehearsal and performance experience.

Students following the Postgraduate Certificate in Performance will additionally take modules in Performance Portfolio and Lecture Recital.
