Course Description

The MMus is an advanced programme in music performance with Principal Study tuition (either instrumental or vocal) at its core. This may be classical or contemporary and embrace both solo and collaborative performance. The courses also develop Masters' level skills of critical enquiry and research as appropriate to students whose principal mode of expression is through performance. This will enable students to articulate aspects of their work through the act of performance itself and through more conventional forms of academic practice.
