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.
The Performance course from University of Leeds is ideal if you wish to pursue advanced performance studies, or are an existing performer wishing to enhance your skills or undertake continuous professional development.
This course 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.
We also offer additional support as you develop your career plans: the School of Music has an Alumni Mentoring Network, where students can be supported by past students as they start to plan their next steps.
