You will be guided by experienced staff, including industry professionals, who will help you to develop the skills of the actor musician though practical classes in movement, voice and approaches to text and character. You will also be developing your existing musical skills for use within a variety of performance contexts.

Perhaps most importantly, you will explore how these skills interconnect. Your actor’s imagination will be developed to help you create, lead and make music, whilst acting classes will explore the musicality of performance.


Graduates of this Actor Musicianship programme at Rose Bruford College can be found in a wide range of work; at leading regional theatres, in the West End, RSC and National Theatre. In television, film, radio, children’s theatre, and in small scale touring theatre companies in the UK and Europe.
