Program overview

Music facilities within the School of Culture and Creative Arts include three studios, the Audio Lab, a small library and a number of seminar and practice rooms. The School also has preferential access to the University Concert Hall. Each year there are opportunities for students to gain work experience working either as the librarian in the School library or as an intern in the suite of studios, assisting with production work and carrying our admin and maintenance tasks. Students will take courses in: Performance, Orchestration, Listening in culture, Listening through analysis, Musical techniques, Opera, Jazz and blues, Romantic song, J S Bach, Musical techniques, Composition. In the later part of the degree the studies become more specialised. Students can take the composition further or concentrate on performance or pursue the creative use of music technology through sonic arts. If music history and culture is of more interest to the student there are courses in 20th-century music, film music, performance practice and the music of Scotland. Students can spend up to a year of the degree studying abroad, normally in the third year. Previous students have chosen to study at the University of Miami, University of British Columbia, University of Illinois, Radford University, University of Melbourne and the University of California LA.
