There are a variety of units available that will be tailored by staff to suit the students on the course.


    You will study rehearsal technique, learn and perform in different musical styles as well as explore techniques for writing music in greater depth. You will also be prepared for management style roles and backstage as well as use musical ICT to a high standard.

    How will I learn?

    • By performing in an ensemble
    • By performing as a soloist
    • By improving your rehearsal technique as a soloist and group member

    • Trips – We are hoping to run trips to some local venues to give an insight into different roles in the industry.
