Content

The MMus/MA in Jazz is structured around your principal study as either an instrumentalist, a composer/arranger, or both.

The MMus is made up of four modules. As well as incorporating your one-to-one lessons, the Principal Study offers a particularly wide range of assessment choices, including solo and group performance, composition/arranging, studio recording, a collaboration with a composer on a new work, and, in second year an independent project.

The Supporting Studies module offers a range of experiences in support of your principal study, including masterclasses, rehearsals and performances within and without the Conservatoire. The programme is completed by the Approaches to Critical Artistry module, in which you carry out a practice-based research project, and up to two Elective modules in each year of study.

The structure of the one-year MA programme is similar, including Principal Study, Supporting Studies, Approaches to Critical Artistry and the option to take one Elective. This programme is completed by the Negotiated Study module, offering the opportunity to pursue an significant period of independent study in an area of your own choosing.

You can exit after gaining 120 credits with a PgDip.
