Program description

Performance

This course is ideal for those who are already proficient instrumental or vocal performers, and wish to refine their skills and extend their knowledge. On this program you will refine your technical and interpretative skills, acquire a deeper understanding of contemporary and historical contexts relating to the performance of music, and develop skills and methodologies to undertake specialist research relating to your creative practice. You will also hone high-level transferable skills in critical thinking, conceptual thinking, problem solving, analysis, communication, self-direction and originality.

You will work closely with professional performers and established researchers, most of whom have international profiles. The School enjoys close links with industrial and third-sector partners such as Welsh National Opera, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Ensemble Cymru, and it is often possible for students to undertake a work placement during the course of the program.
