The three-year BA (Hons) Music Performance degree gives you more extensive individual tuition – comparable to the level you’d receive in a conservatoire – and more chamber music, ensemble or orchestral coaching.

Our music programme is one of the largest and liveliest in the UK. We focus on music as an applied art, one that engages with the musical world in all its diversity and excitement.

Programme structure

There are four main routes of study if you want to focus on performance. These are:

BMus (Hons) Jazz Performance (three years)

BA (Hons) Music Performance (three years)

BMus (Hons) Performance (four years)

BMus (Hons) Vocal Performance (four years)

You’ll also be trained in the art of performance itself, study performance anxiety, the use of gesture in performance, concert and event hosting, and can choose to study Alexander Technique, Yoga, dance and acting alongside a wide choice of contextual modules. Our ensembles are involved in a lot of performance work along with a rich programme of concerts, recitals and master classes by visiting artists. Some of the performance modules you might take include:

Performance Development modules
Performance Anxiety
Movement and Gesture

Ensemble Experience
Performance Personal Study
Everyone completes a personal study as part of their undergraduate work, and for performers this is an opportunity to present a longer and more challenging programme of work.
