We have invested  into our impressive state-of-the-art music facilities with the aim of creating functional spaces that combine tradition with cutting edge technology. The Music course is offered by Birmingham City University.


What's covered in the course?

In addition to benefiting from individual tuition, you will enjoy a range of activities designed to develop your artistry, musical fluency and personal and professional awareness.The Music course is offered by Birmingham City University.

You will find yourself immersed in masterclasses and performance and composition workshops.  Individual ensemble coaching and playing and teaching techniques complete the picture, helping you to become a well-rounded musician.

Top-flight singers and musicians – including baritone Roderick Williams, violinist Tasmin Little OBE, cellist Ben Davies, soprano Danielle de Niese and pianist Stephen Hough – are among musicians who have worked with and inspired our students.

Towards the end of your course, you will carry out a major project, which allows you to explore a specialism and format which matches your professional aspirations. This can be anything connected to music, from performance to business projects and  dissertations to multi-media installations.

Enhance Employability Skills

All of the UK's Conservatoires aim to do the same thing: to train students for the music profession, with the emphasis on your first study training, whether that is in performance, composition or music technology.
