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.
