Summary

This course offers a wealth of performance opportunities and introduces you to a wide range of musical studies at an advanced level. You’ll study with one of our expert professional instrumental/vocal teachers and with the guidance of our resident repetiteur and experienced performance staff to develop your skills in technical proficiency, presentation and interpretation in musical performance.

You’ll be encouraged and supported to take an interest in performance research to enhance your musical and artistic development. Through individual lessons, performance classes and masterclasses, you’ll prepare and perform a recital as the major part of your course, and explore the challenges of performing a large-scale musical structure through the concerto/song-cycle/extended work module.

You can choose to carry out an applied performance study, allowing pursuit of a distinctive individual performance project, and/or present a second, shorter recital on a different instrument/voice from that of your main recital. To put your performance into context you’ll also study a module focused on researching performance and you can pursue an optional module in another area of music such as musicology, or the music industry.

The course is ideal if you wish to pursue advanced performance studies, or are an existing performer wishing to enhance your skills or undertake continuous professional development.

We have a variety of excellent facilities to support your learning, including rehearsal, performance and practice spaces, a lab for studying the psychology of music and studios for sound recording, software development and computer music composition.

We also have good working relationships with a range of prestigious arts organisations: we host BBC Radio 3 concerts, Leeds Lieder and the Leeds International Piano Competition, as well as enjoying a close partnership with Opera North and many other organisations in a city with a thriving music and cultural scene.

You could also choose to study for a Postgraduate Diploma qualification over 12 months full-time or 24 months part-time.
