Music research

Our Music programme is one of the largest and liveliest in the UK, and focuses on music as an applied art; one that is engaged with the musical world in all its diversity and excitement.

This means that our courses are focused on practical work, from performance, composition and improvisation to musical theatre performance, training in instrumental or vocal teaching, music business, music therapy and community music, as well as traditional music analysis and critical theory.

We have an extensive programme of professional concerts and masterclasses on campus, all of which are free to students.

Tuition takes place in our modern music facilities, which include well-equipped practice rooms with new grand pianos supplied by Steinway & Sons, an acoustically superb performance venue with two Steinway model D concert grands, a concert organ, baroque and modern pitch harpsichords and a  theatre with a 130 square meter stage and an orchestra pit.
