Mmus/MusM - Master of Music
Performing Arts (General) Music Studies
This Masters develops your technical and interpretive abilities as a performer, informed by an understanding of style, genre, context and interpretation, as well as historical and theoretical issues relevant to your specialist repertoire.
You have the opportunity to engage with a range of different musical styles, and to develop those practical and intellectual skills that can make you a better informed and more accomplished performer.
You receive significant amounts of one-to-one instrumental or vocal tuition from expert performers, and participate in yearly masterclasses with distinguished international performers and teachers.
You develop your individual specialist skills to a high technical and artistic standard, while also developing intellectual and team-working skills, and you have the opportunity to perform with a variety of departmental ensembles, including Goldsmiths’ Sinfonia.
The programme offers an extensive list of elective modules that encompass historical study and the latest performance-based technologies.
The pathway is particularly suitable for those hoping to develop a career as a professional solo or chamber musician, or to develop performance skills before entering teaching, or as preparation for PhD research in performance practice.
It appeals to and can accommodate many different types of performer, whether your interests are in Classical or Romantic repertoire, or contemporary music.
The programme is designed to develop your practical skills as a musical performer to a high level.
The programme provides you with a secure technical and intellectual base on which you can build a career as a professional musician, or enhance your understanding and enjoyment of musical performance.

For this course (per year)
Students should have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at least upper second class standard in Music or a relevant/related subject. Their qualification should comprise a substantial practical/creative element relevant to the selected MMus pathway and option choices. A detailed transcript of their degree is preferred. Students might also be considered for some programmes if they aren’t a graduate or their degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that students have the ability to work at postgraduate level. Students who have completed up to 90 credits (not including final 60-credit projects or dissertations) of a comparable degree at another university can apply for recognition of prior learning status as part of their application for a place on the programme, where such credits are carried forward into your study at Goldsmiths.
