Overview

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.

Instrumental Teaching is an important part of a performer’s professional portfolio and our four year BMus (Hons) Instrumental Teaching programme is particularly designed to equip you for a career as a visiting teacher and in your own private practice, while at the same time developing your skills as a performer.

You will learn about technical and musical development on your instrument, how to practically prepare pupils for public performances and for graded examinations, school music assessments, and performances while developing an in-depth understanding of individual, group, and ensemble teaching skills.

Programme structure

Throughout your time at Chichester you will explore aspects of musical learning and teaching, beginning with instrumental technique and how sound is physically produced on the instrument and then moving on to repertoire and the various gradings that happen within school and external exams. You will experience what it is like to be a beginner as you learn a new instrument from the beginning, and you will have a chance to work with children in workshops and perform to them in their schools. Arranging skills are developed and the psychology of learning music is covered. In the third year you will take on your own private student as part of the course. In class we role play, use peer learning, and welcome both students and other professional teachers to workshops and lectures. In the final year you learn to create a curriculum for your own students and also develop skills to use in a group teaching context.

Career opportunities

We understand the importance of ensuring that you’ve the knowledge, skills and experience to compete successfully in today’s challenging jobs market.

In addition to the work placements and sector-specific employability and enterprise modules that many of you will have embedded in your course, we’ve developed a student and graduate internship scheme.
