Our Popular Music course will help you to develop your musical creativity, critical analysis and recording skills giving you the opportunity to become a fully equipped musician for the 21st century. You will be able to combine this with another area of interest through a Joint Honours degree.
Joint honours degrees allow you to study two subjects. You can study them both equally, or focus on one more than the other, creating a major/minor split.
We will give you all the skills you need to become a creative music practitioner, helping you to understand how to work in a range of areas in the music and media industry, as well as the teaching profession and other related areas.
By focusing on the collaborative relationship between theory and performance, this course provides you with an integrated degree that studies popular music’s role within contemporary culture while enhancing musicianship, studio skills and industrial practice.
The course will consider popular music from a number of theoretical angles throughout all three stages. It has a hands-on, practice element enabling students to develop their creative skills in composition/song-writing and cultivate their general musicianship. Students will be introduced to the application of contemporary music technologies and hone performance and production skills.
