Community Music at Aberdeen gives you the brilliant opportunity to learn, compose and perform with world-renowned composers, conductors, musicologists and researchers working in all genres, styles and periods, taking advantage of first-class facilities, instruments and opportunities to perform. You will then specialise in the role, potential and practice of music of all kinds in non-formal community settings. When you enter our highly-regarded BMus programme, you might already have many specific career aspirations including editing, writing and presenting music, composing, and performing. If you are still considering your music career however, our programmes are specifically designed to give you the time to explore and develop your interests with a broad two-year foundation in music before choosing your specific programme. You will study performance, composition, theory, musicianship and a broad overview of music history which serves as the foundation for future study and specialising in subsequent years. In the BMus Community Music, you will then specialise in growing your knowledge and skills in understanding communities and the role and potential of music in non-formal community environments, including a community placement in your final year. You will graduate well prepared for a career in community education or other work with music in communities, or to apply your skills in other settings in education, media, or the music business.
