You’ll study with one of our expert professional instrumental/vocal teachers and with the guidance of our resident repetiteur and experienced performance staff to develop your skills in technical proficiency, presentation and interpretation in musical performance.
You are also encouraged and supported to take an interest in performance research to enhance your musical and artistic development. Through individual lessons, performance classes and masterclasses, you’ll prepare and perform a recital as the major part of your course, and explore the challenges of performing a large-scale musical structure through the concerto/song-cycle/extended work module.
This Performance course at University of Leeds will allow you to develop as a performer, improve your musical knowledge and gain critical, research and communication skills.
Graduates have pursued a range of careers in orchestral playing, solo performance, instrumental teaching, and arts administration. Several have also pursued further study at conservatoires in the UK and abroad, or research degrees at Leeds and other institutions. You could also go on to study at PhD level.
