Description

Advertisement

The MMus is designed with careful consideration of the opportunities and intellectual demands presented by careers in music and the creative industries in general. The programme addresses the evolving challenges presented in creating new music, sound art and technology, and/or concert performances. It references a diverse range of music, focusing as appropriate upon contemporary and Western art music, popular music, the music of other cultures, and computer music.

Requirements

You should normally have, or expect to have, a first-class or upper second-class Honours degree in Music, or an equivalent qualification. Your qualification should comprise a substantial practical/creative element relevant to the selected MMus pathway and option choices. A detailed transcript of your degree is preferred.
We also encourage applications from people without formal qualifications who can demonstrate equivalent professional experience, in which case you may be asked to provide additional examples of your written work.
For the pathways in Creative Practice, Composition, and Studio Composition, you should include with your application a short portfolio that provides selected examples of your recent creative work (e.g. musical scores, CD, DVD, as appropriate). These examples should be relevant to the focus of the pathway.
For Performance and Related Studies, if you are invited for interview you will be required to perform two contrasting works (not more than 15 minutes in total). Please bring your own accompanist if possible. International students may submit an audio or video recording of a performance, accompanied by a signed statement from an authority such as a teacher that the performance is the applicant´s own.
