Department Vision

The music department aims to allow students develop an understanding of a wide variety of musical styles from around the world.  The students have access to the latest technology as well as traditional instruments in order to compose and perform musical works.  As a department we encourage instrumental tuition and have a large number of students who are taught weekly by peripatetic staff across the full range of orchestral and electronic instruments.
