BA (Hons) Music taught at Wolverhampton has a strong focus on practical performance-based work, enabling you to create and recreate music in equal measure. You will perform in a range of ensembles as well as in smaller instrumental popular music and contemporary performing groups; these are renowned features of the course and we have significant feedback from former students testifying to the quality of experience gained.
With a clear emphasis on making, understanding, shaping and experiencing music you can expect to study composition in a range of styles from Western Art music to song writing, and perform in different ensembles as well as develop your own technique as an instrumentalist and solo performer. We are very proud of our excellent, well-established team of visiting musicians, who contribute to the programme.
We consider the challenges you face as a learner in the 21st century and provide the opportunity to acquire a broad range of associated skills that will enhance your musicianship and employability, including: sound design, working in the community, music for media, and music therapy. All of these skills will be brought together in professional development modules, which will help you to identify and follow your chosen career. The course is designed to allow you to work collaboratively, experiencing music in a wide variety of contexts and cultures. You will meet interesting people and make long-lasting musical friendships and the course will broaden your horizons for lifelong learning.
