Music Performance is for the performing musician or vocalist. If you are already skilled as a performer to around grade 4 or equivalent and want to develop your skills then the Music Performance will allow you to develop your skills through class workshops and concerts. The course also includes music journalism through research and article writing.                           



There are various units to choose from, all designed to make you think more deeply about your role as a performer and practical tasks to help improve your technique. In addition, there is also substantial written work to complete, so you will need good English skills too.

• Units could include:

• Improvisation

• Performing Repertoire

• Proposal for a commissioning brief

• Performance practice

• Exploring different styles and genres.
