Course content

This pathway gives string and woodwind players the opportunity for in-depth research into historically-informed performance.

You'll work with academics and teachers with extensive knowledge in a wide range of repertoire, allowing you to explore your chosen area of study in depth. Regular workshops and performance opportunities will provide valuable feedback and allow you to expand your repertoire and improve your performance skills and understanding of musical style.

Previous students have gone on to professional performing careers or to further study on performance courses. This pathway is also an excellent preparation for students wanting to progress to research degrees in performance.
