In consultation with your supervising tutor, the module enables you to determine your own area of investigation. Bookings are open for The Big Sing – an interactive musical experience with Ula Weber and Suzzi Vango.

Advisory support for nursery, infant, junior, primary, special and secondary schools. Children from four Worcestershire schools have worked with musician and composer Helen Lyon to create a brand-new song for the Jubilee. The MA Music offers you a unique opportunity to engage with cutting-edge interdisciplinary research on music and the moving image. This pathway allows you to pursue your interests in music, acting as a supplementary course to the main body of the Arts Administration programme. We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September. During the MA I focused my dissertation on the cultural education agenda in place in England.

New Directions In Popular Music Research

This module will introduce students to models of management and professional practice appropriate to arts organisations. It will examine the relationship between arts management practice and the culture in which that practice is situated. Students will be introduced to key ideas in organisational management from Weber to Handy and Belbin and current writing on leadership. Students will also be introduced to different forms of legal structures for organisations and basic issues relating to employment. The module is designed for students with strong research interest in Russian culture and Russian history. The emphasis is on history, and on different aspects of social and political life in Russia and Eastern Europe, particularly on current issues.

  • In this module lectures and seminars will be dedicated to aspects of popular music research such as musicology, audience studies, performance studies, and/or cultural studies.
  • Taking Schoenberg’s comments concerning the organisation of timbre from the end of his ‘Harmonielehre’ as a starting point, the module explores the more recent investigations into the relationship between harmony, texture and form.
  • Students are trained to work with scholarly resources and all manner of music sources, from manuscripts to digitized autographs to early recordings.
  • The MA Music examines aspects of methodology, repertoire studies and cultural theory within a wide-ranging programme of investigation into the role of contemporary music in the society for which it is created.
  • 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 are encouraged to explore current issues through research, analysis and debate and will be supported by tutorials. You are also encouraged to be resourceful in researching areas where there is little published material and interviews with practitioners and policymakers may be a primary resource. We recommend having a conversation with the programme convenor about how to proceed, and to determine time commitments. Through both analysis of contemporary and recent practice, and practical work in a range of areas, you will develop a critical approach to the discipline. This option is a self-directed practical module enabling you to engage in a research-informed investigation leading to a substantial practical piece.
