The nature of this Music (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool will vary according to your module choices. In Year One, core modules will develop theory skills that will be useful for composition and performance, while the study of music history will make a critical exploration, not only going through key musical milestones but interrogating the nature of music histories and how they are written. You will also have the opportunity to study or investigate areas that may be new to you (such as film music, jazz technology, composition, world music and many more). Flexibility is our guiding principal, which means that you have a wide-range of modules to choose from that run the full spectrum of musical endeavour.
In Years Two and Three you will focus in more depth on fewer selected topics, either concentrating solely on classical music modules or retaining the option to pursue one or two modules in technology or popular music if you wish. Specialist topics can be studied alongside advanced level historical, theoretical, performance or composition modules. In Year Three there is a particular emphasis on specialism and an extended or independent project (such as a dissertation, major composition portfolio or extended recital).
Studying Music opens up many career opportunities. As well as jobs in music (from performance, composition, and production, through to teaching, music therapy and community arts), employers in many sectors are increasingly seeking arts and humanities graduates for their transferable skills. As a music student you will achieve creative flair and imagination, confidence in expressing yourself, an openness to new ideas, a capacity for hard work and an ability to analyse data. You will learn the value of working with others towards a shared, finished product and a whole range of flexible, professional skills.
