About

Advance your skills as a singer with a postgraduate programme in Vocal Performance at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Vocal Performance - MMus / PgCert / PgDip is provided by Birmingham City University.

Overview

You'll receive specialist tuition from leading UK and internationally renowned performers and teachers. 

In addition, you'll enjoy regular opportunities to sing in a variety of contexts, both as a soloist and in ensembles with other performers. 

These include not only classes and masterclasses (these last being led by distinguished guest performers), but also in concerts and on the operatic stage.

The Vocal Performance programme is offered at Birmingham City University.

Why Choose Us?

For most aspiring professional performers, postgraduate study at a conservatoire is accepted as a required continuation of their training. 

Furthermore, if you have other specialisms – notably Composition, Music Technology and Musicology – Birmingham Conservatoire offers the ideal environment to hone your craft, with many opportunities both to collaborate with each other and with performers.

While it is a characteristic of conservatoire study (at any level) that your Principal Study area is at the heart of your course, and that advanced skills in this specialist area are a pre-requisite for a successful career in the music profession, we recognise that you also need to be equipped with a range of additional essential attributes – especially given that most of you will be destined for freelance, portfolio careers which will rely on self-motivation and good organisational skills.

Our aim is to send you out with the knowledge,

A distinctive feature of our postgraduate courses is that you can make choices

We also offer you guidance in making your choices by encouraging you to consider your plans for the future, and your priorities in terms of what you want to gain from your course. 

This will ensure that your module choices are made strategically in relation to your professional development and future employability.
