Are you a composer, a singer-songwriter, a producer, a performer, a DJ, a noise artist, an improviser, a curator or a music journalist? Then our brand new, bold and broad-based programme is for you. It’s a hybrid of core and bespoke activities catering to the new reality of a career in music. Our aim is to form a new generation of musical creators who are capable of navigating real-world projects and collaborations at the forefront of our changing world. At its heart is creativity, technology, collaboration, entrepreneurship and innovation.
Right from your very first week, we foster all the skills you’ll need for a career in music. Through an attractive range of engaging modules we place you, the creative musician, at the heart of our teaching, allowing you to develop independent and open-minded thinking. You can also combine your music-making with other disciplines such as theatre, creative writing, design, journalism and games.
We also offer a placement year, and with our unrivalled network of contacts across the music industry, this will provide you with that all-important link to the world of work.
We train our graduates to be highly-skilled, self-confident, inquisitive, robust and sought-after musicians who go on to a huge variety of careers in performance, recording, media, composition, arts management, teaching, and music therapy. Our students love the teaching and ambiance that our music team provides and have consistently rated Music at Brunel highly in the National Student Survey.
