Created for instrumentalists, singers, conductors and composers, this course offers an advanced, individually tailored programme of study over 10 months.
It’s aimed at students who have completed a master’s course in performance or composition at a conservatoire and then seek a final, additional period of specialist training before entering their chosen profession.
You can study any of these areas as part of your course:
At the outset, you’ll establish a detailed professional training plan that will guide your subsequent 10 months with us. It’s a flexible document that reflects your creative ambitions and the activities and practical experiences you need to participate in here to fulfil them.
Informed by your training plan, you’ll then work with senior staff to devise the teaching and learning methods for your course. Typically, you’ll receive at least 40 hours of specialist, individual tuition from professional musicians throughout your study. And you’ll balance that with a significant amount of work-based training and performance opportunities, as well as regular tutorial support from a mentor.
Aside from your practical training, you’ll also have classes in areas that focus on employability and your health as a musician.
This rigorous training programme, set in an inspiring conservatoire setting, will enhance your confidence, stylistic awareness and artistic abilities, preparing you for a career in today’s music industry.
