Study Music Degrees

A student looking to study a degree in music should have at least some experience of your chosen instrument or specialisation. A music degree is perfect for any student who is passionate about music, and wishes to further their theoretical and practical knowledge.

As a music student, you will not only study the practical training of your instrumental skills, you will also develop your knowledge of musical theory. This might include music history, performance, arrangement, harmony and music technology.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These could include lectures and seminars, as well as practical projects and performance opportunities. There may be an option for you to participate in a work placement, but this is not guaranteed.
