This is intensive professional training for highly skilled musicians embarking on a career as a musical director.

The course takes place five days per week over 42 weeks split into three terms. (Exact dates will depend on practical show assignments)
Course components are individually timetabled for each student. Across the year you will have tutorials with leading practitioners and industry specialists, assist professional musical directors on in-house and public productions and lead musically on selected performances. Assessment is based on work throughout the course. You will prepare for an MA project through a series of seminars and tutorials. At the end of the year there will be a showing of your work with an invited audience.

Admission onto the course is by interview. Candidates are required to have a very high standard of piano playing. Applicants must be aged 21 years or over at the start of the course. Students who do not hold an undergraduate degree will need to undertake an access assignment to establish suitability for undertaking the MA.
If an applicant’s first language is not English, and they have not been taught in English or studied to A Level standard in the UK, they will need to demonstrate an acceptable minimum level of competence through the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) (Band 6.5).
