Course content

This Masters degree in music performance centres on technical and performance skills at an advanced level. It is an inspiring course, designed to support your practical musicianship skills and help you to take them to the next level.

MMus Performance students benefit from:

  • one-to-one tuition with our instrumental teaching staff, who are all internationally acclaimed recitalists
  • playing and learning with other students in workshops
  • master classes with leading musicians and composers
  • our lively musical environment.

You will explore a wide range of music and performance styles from the past 100 years. By doing so, you will develop your critical thinking and listening skills, and expand your understanding of a broad range of performance approaches. As you progress through the course, we will also encourage you to develop your own style as a performer.

While studying at London College of Music (LCM) you can boost your learning experience in our weekly Postgraduate Research Seminars and Composition Workshops. These offer fantastic opportunities to learn new skills and network with students from other postgraduate courses.
