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.
Performance and Keyboard 2 students are reimbursed by the University to a maximum of £650 for tuition fees; costs of lessons in excess of this sum have to be paid by the student. Travelling costs to lessons and instrument maintenance costs may also be incurred.
