Overview

Performance constitutes perhaps our fastest growing and most exciting venture, with new and ambitious plans growing out of the new £16 million Bramall Music Building, with its acoustically peerless Elgar Concert Hall and Dome Rehearsal Room designed by Birmingham Symphony Hall acoustician Nick Edwards.

Scholar-performer and early music conductor Andrew Kirkman joins forces with Simon Halsey, renowned chorus master of the CBSO and Berlin Radio Choir, and orchestral conductor Daniele Rosina, plus instrumental and vocal lessons arranged with the faculty of Birmingham Conservatoire

Programme structure

You will study two core modules:

Advanced Performance
Music Research Colloquium

You will also choose two optional modules and present a substantial solo recital. The recital offers you the opportunity to unite practical and theoretical musicianship, and to demonstrate the ability to plan and independently prepare (with some supervision) a performance at an advanced level.
