ABOUT

Overview

Do you want to develop your performance skills or music teaching practice? Or are you passionate about pursuing a performance-based research project? Or maybe you would like to perform with industry professionals (e.g. from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra)? Or to professionalise your current profile as a musician and/or teacher?

The MMus Performance at the University of Liverpool offers:

• Development of solo and ensemble performance
• Development of teaching practice (solo, group and complementary approaches)
• Development of research skills and research projects appropriate to performance
• Opportunities to perform with members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra for performance assessments
• Opportunities to do other performance work beyond standard recitals (e.g. recording and videos).

In addition to your performance study, you’ll explore approaches towards and techniques for teaching Music, and develop the skills to analyse performances of a wide variety of repertoires, enabling you to question assumptions about performances made by performers today.

Performance accounts for 40 of the 180 credits in the flexible modular scheme (20 credits for in each of the two semesters), and involves 1-2-1 tuition as well as weekly group workshops. You will study a further 40 credits in pedagogy, exploring the skills and processes of teaching and learning a musical instrument or voice. The remainder of the taught modules will focus on research skills, preparing you to undertake a Major Project over the summer. Your project may be either a long recital or a pedagogy/research project, depending on your chosen performance studies specialism, and is worth 60 credits of your overall degree.

Please note that the MMus Performance is designed specifically for classical music.
