Study Performing Arts & Music At University arts and music

Severn Arts’ Young Voices New Visions exhibition is returning to Worcester Cathedral on Sunday 22 May. This year the artwork presented is responding to and celebrating the theme ‘life’. Introduce your whole class to the joy of playing an instrument with our one-year, First Access Music Education , introductory programme. If you’re applying for funding, you may be subject to an earlier application deadline.

This is a practical module that will focus on deconstruction, analysis and application of music theory with more specific focus on musical structure. Workshop sessions will enable you to apply theory, experiment with ideas, and to create improvisations and/or compositions. You will develop your practical technique and your ability to express musical ideas in practice. In the second part through undertaking a placement with an appropriate arts organisation students will be able to observe, account for and analyse contemporary management practice. Placements will take into account the particular specialised interests of students. Students will prepare a placement report that concentrates on evaluating the appropriateness of management policies and practice in relation to the organisation’s stated mission.

What Does Arts Award Offer Music Educators?

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.

  • As the course enjoys considerable goodwill within the profession there is normally a suitable placement to develop the interests of each student.
  • This will enable you to develop your own specialist practice you need for working within this dynamic sector.
  • 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.
  • This year the artwork presented is responding to and celebrating the theme ‘life’.

Much of the module will be devoted specifically to the Soviet period, to the ‘socialist realism’ rules in creative arts. Special lectures/seminars will be devoted to Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Schnittke and post-Soviet composers, in relation to the ‘official’ propaganda in Soviet Union, Stalin decrees and the official line of the Communist Party cultural ‘programme’. Particular attention will be given to the current issues, and the development of Russian music after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Students will be given the opportunity to work at Goldsmiths’ unique archives – Prokofiev, Schnittke archives, Stravinsky Collection, and the special collection of post-Soviet scores and documents. All students will write a Dissertation on an aspect of Arts Administration and Cultural Policy.

You will be taught by a strong team of industry focused lecturers combined with regular masterclasses from professionals that are designed to educate, stimulate, and motivate. We support innovative and curious students who are willing to engage with ideas that will enhance their own creative vision and critical thinking. Occasionally, we’ll make candidates an offer of a place on the basis of their application and qualifications alone. You should have an undergraduate degree of at least upper second class standard in a subject concerned with arts and culture or another relevant/related subject. They arise too when we defend ourselves by saying that all values are relative , and that non-western cultures and subcultures have every right to make a claim on the notions of art and the aesthetic. Writing the dissertation will draw on areas studied throughout the three terms.

The ability to conduct this research in an institution that encourages lateral thinking and reaching beyond the bounds of societal structures, was truly empowering. The assessment for the specialist music component will be as given in the individual module descriptions. From asking current students about their experiences to immersing yourself in campus and accommodation tours, you will leave knowing if this place is for you. More information on mental health and wellbeing support is also provided in our Chief Executive and Principal’s recentopen letter on the Ukraine crisis. If you prefer to be backstage or behind the camera, we have lots of exciting opportunities for you to be working in our TV studio, edit suites and on our lighting rigs to direct performances or produce props for the show.

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.
