Course Summary

A close-knit and very active department, the Organ Faculty offers programmes for organists to study solo repertoire, hone technical skills and learn the crucial aspects of playing in a wide variety of contexts and styles.

MASTER OF MUSIC (PERFORMANCE)

The Master of Music in Performance is similar to the Master of Arts but with the addition of a Masters Project; this can be a concert with commentary, a recording-based project, a dissertation or a mixture of these.

Your Project preparation is supported by a team of specialists and provides an opportunity for you to enhance your creative work through specialised academic study and practice-led research. Postgraduate students are a vital part of the Academy’s musical culture, working in a uniquely collaborative performance environment ideally suited to helping talented musicians — from across the globe — to achieve their musical ambitions. Students wishing to prepare applications for doctoral study will normally choose the MMus rather than the MA. The programme path and length can be discussed at the entrance interview and adjusted as appropriate, you are not tied to the option you choose when you submit your application in UCAS Conservatoires.

DEPARTMENT CLASSES AND ACTIVITIES

Masterclasses and Performance Classes

Public masterclasses are a regular feature and a highlight of the calendar for our students. You will have the opportunity to work on specific repertoire with leading performers in the organ world. By contrast, Performance Classes are led by Academy professors offering you an opportunity to discuss and experiment with your interpretive ideas in an informal environment.
