Art & Music arts and music

We nurture students to develop their own voice and practice and then connect them to the ever expanding opportunities in the world. We cannot guarantee a placement with any specific arts organisation, but we take you through a supportive process to gain a placement with an appropriate arts organisation. In this module you will have the opportunity to discuss with senior members of the cultural management profession how policies are reflected in their organisations. To deliver this module the programme works with some of our ‘Partners in Learning’. Although professional management practice is a major element of the programme, the ‘creative arts event’ is the starting point for all teaching.

  • Specialist technicians in roles such as film, lighting and sound are in high demand.
  • If you think you might be eligible to study part-time while being on another visa type, please contact our Admissions Team for more information.
  • We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September.
  • During the module, you will gain familiarity with the connections between ethnomusicology and related disciplines such as anthropology, and with debates concerning disciplinary boundaries within music studies.

This module delivers the expertise to do both, and illuminates the processes, both historical and contemporary, through which scores are prepared. Students are trained to work with scholarly resources and all manner of music sources, from manuscripts to digitized autographs to early recordings. Skills are absorbed in lectures and workshops that explore different editorial methods, and the rationales and biases that undergird them.

You will then be able to discuss and expand on the issues raised and make connections with the policy areas studied in Cultural Policy and Practice (CP&P). These seminars also introduce you to a range of specialist practice that is only briefly covered in CP&P, such as reminiscence theatre or gallery education programmes. This dynamic, innovative, industry-facing course is designed for students whose ambition is to work in the music industry. The course will prepare you to be a versatile, resilient portfolio musician with a host of transferable skills.

This will enable you to develop your own specialist practice you need for working within this dynamic sector. Develop an expertise in a business relevant to your musical interest and discover opportunities for industry based internships and graduate placements. It’s a well-known secret that some of the greatest musicians studied music at arts school. Some of our best-known original thinkers and innovators have developed their musical creativity in an inspiring environment that allowed them to think differently. Whichever you choose, we’ll challenge you to come up with imaginative solutions to creative briefs, and encourage you to explore the theory behind your practice.

You will learn through being involved in stimulating live briefs relevant to current 21st century music industry practices. With an emphasis on the production of original work, you will learn how to collaborate with your fellow students in performance, songwriting and production, whilst acquiring a detailed knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the contemporary music business. This module will introduce you to a model for producing a business/strategic plan for an arts organisation. This is the key document required by all arts organisations, particularly those within the subsidised sector and those wishing to join it. It is currently common practice to write a business plan that considers a three-year period, which is then rolled forward on an annual basis. It is a document that should have an external and internal purpose (i.e. be suitable to send to funders, businesses, banks etc), in addition to being a reference point for staff, and board members.

You start preparing your dissertation in term one with sessions on study skills. These are followed by a series of seminars, primarily with practitioners, which introduces you to key issues of how policy is implemented in practice. Sessions are normally two hours long, initiated by a presentation that outlines the history, remit and policy of an arts organisation followed by a discussion on the key areas of current concern.

It should refer to all aspects of an organisation’s activities, including the artistic and educational programming, management and staffing, location and resources, finances, marketing and development. Picking the programme is the first step in your performing arts and music career! Whether you choose a full-time study programme and pick your own specialism, or apply to study a university level programme, we’re sure to have something that suits you and your learning style. Deal Music & Arts has been bringing the best in arts and culture to East Kent for nearly 40 years, and in that time we have welcomed many of the world’s greatest artists. Over those years, we have evolved from a summer festival to a year-round organisation that maintains that vibrant festival and supports a series of education programmes.

Unpaid Opportunities

It’s our great industry links and the opportunities to work on live briefs and client-based projects that we provide throughout degrees that make our students work-ready upon graduation. If you’re a keen performer, you’ll love working in our sprung-floor dance studios or rehearsing in our drama studios and fully-equipped theatre. Off-stage you will learn to work in professional setups, including our fully-rigged lighting rig and sound desk. Music students can take advantage of using our sound-proof rehearsal rooms, recording studios and editing suites.

Continuing from Professional Practice 1, this module explores deconstruction, analysis, and application of theory with more specific focus on musical arranging and orchestration. Practical workshop sessions will enable you to put theory into practice, collaborate in ensembles exploring a broad range of styles, and create music that stretches your technical and stylistic boundaries. You will will engage in specialist 1-to-1 sessions with an instrumental tutor for one hour per week over the academic year . The sessions will develop technical proficiency, musicality, and awareness of repertoire. I am currently an intern with Saatchi Gallery, assisting with the schools programme.

If you want to make a career in music composition, music technology, or in the business side of the industry, our undergraduate and Master’s degree courses in music production and music management are for you. The focus is on contemporary theoretical issues in the field, although current concerns will be situated within the history of ethnomusicological discourse. During the module, you will gain familiarity with the connections between ethnomusicology and related disciplines such as anthropology, and with debates concerning disciplinary boundaries within music studies. The aim of taught modules, projects and placements is to introduce you to new models of practice. These will be investigated and evaluated as a way of developing an understanding of management principles. Through this process, you will also be equipped with the necessary practical skills to enhance your potential as arts administrators.
