This work-based course is designed to be taken by students working primarily as instrumentalists within the music industry. Attendance to the Faculty of the Arts is limited to three lecture days a year, with the remaining tuition delivered by one-to-one contact time through the tutorial system.
The course aims to equip students with a breadth of skills and information enabling them to develop their careers within todays music industry. Provision is made for students professional work to form part of the assessment process, particularly with regard to practical components of the course.
The course is structured around the needs of the professional performing musician. Central to this is the further development of advanced, technically assured and artistically informed performance skills. These are supplemented by more narrowly defined skills, which relate to and arise directly from each chosen area of specialist work.
Students will study the following modules:
- Instrumental Studies (1)
- Instrumental Studies (2)
- Postgraduate Dissertation (SWE)
- Negotiated Work-Based Learning
This is a student-led, individually negotiated and mentored, practical project and/or research dissertation. This module allows an opportunity to devise and execute an ambitious and substantial personal, self-managed project that encompasses and showcases many of the skills and knowledge acquired during the course.
In addition to these core modules, students will have the opportunity to select three options, ranging from practicalbased areas such as composition, orchestration and arranging and chamber music, through to theory-based modules in ensemble management and transcription.
