You develop skills in teaching and in the area of music management and promotion through the Professional Musician module. This offers you the opportunity to undertake a placement in an organisation of your choice. In addition to the Professional Musician module (which is core) there are a number of optional modules.

There is a wide choice of modules, ranging from Performance to Music Analysis.
You have the freedom for creative output in specialisms such as performance or composition together with the choice of a wide range of supporting modules, from the Opera Project to Music Psychology and Music in Action (which is a community music module).
