Course Summary

The MMus degree advances your exploration of today’s creative music practice in all its complexity. From a range of stimulating pathways, you choose one that best suits your interests. Modules are shared across pathways, and are rooted in academic and practice-based research.

The MMus degree allows students to advance in performance and composition in the broadest sense, while acquiring academic knowledge.

The pathways available are:

  • Creative Practice (Pathway A)
  • Composition (Pathway B)
  • Sonic Arts (Pathway C)
  • Performance and Related Studies (Pathway D)
  • Popular Music (Pathway E)

The programme’s modules explore music as an evolving subject and cover repertories from Western art music through to electronic, popular, audio-visual, non-Western, and contemporary repertories.

  • You develop systematic, critical and creative approaches, exploring musical practice, discourses, and contexts
  • You develop an independent and original approach to creative practice
  • You explore interrelationships between music and other subjects, between theory and practice, and between performance and structural interpretation
