Music Courses for International Students
BMus - Popular Music Performance

 



Accelerated 2-year degree
Birmingham

This Popular Music Performance degree, offered in partnership with Birmingham City University, provides vocational training for musicians (guitarists, bassists, drummers, keyboard players and vocalists) who intend to progress into the contemporary music industry to work as freelance popular musicians. It aims to attract students from a wide range of musical backgrounds and experiences and provide the skills required to progress into employment, self-employment and/or higher-level study.

The programme is designed to equip learners with the skills required to operate across a range of freelance music opportunities with a focus on music performance. Students will need to appreciate the development of their own skills, and how to exploit them in order to reach their potential market. They will expand their ability to contextualise, to think critically and to apply theories, which allow them to develop as individuals.

Assessment is more practically focused than many music degrees, with an emphasis on the demonstration of musical skills.
