Course description The course has two components: Keyboard Skills and instrumental/vocal performance. It aims to provide an integrated course in general musicianship, and continues to develop keyboard skills, as well as fostering students' performance on their individual instruments or voice.

Performance seminars will be run by the course organiser. In these seminars, students will learn to prepare strategically and perform musical pieces. They will receive feedback and advice from their course organiser, who will also give guidance on the preparation of the written components of the course. Moreover, students will receive feedback from their peers and the graduate studio accompanist. Students will also attend masterclasses.

Keyboard tutorials will be run by keyboard tutors. In these tutorials, students will practice their keyboard skills, receive guidance on the required individual independent practice and verbal feedback on their progress.

Throughout the academic year, a considerable amount of contact teaching hours will consist of regular lessons with expert vocal/instrumental teachers, who will provide guidance to the students in private lessons. Teachers are asked to provide the course organiser with brief progress reports on each student's work.
