|■ MMus Conducting
This course is designed to develop, to an advanced level, the skills and interpretative abilities required of the modern conductor; applicants will need to provide evidence of their conducting experience. The course comprises practical coursework (score-reading, aural perception, baton technique); written coursework; work studies (standard repertory, pre-classical and contemporary styles and techniques); and rehearsing with vocal and instrumental ensembles inside and outside the University. Assessment is based on coursework (including rehearsals, performances and an extended essay); a practical examination comprising the rehearsal and public performance of a prepared orchestral programme; and an oral examination.
■ MMus Performance
This course is intended for performers who wish to combine advanced practical tuition (in voice or instrument) with academic studies in interpretation and performance practice. Students are sent to specialist teachers outside the University (often at the London colleges) for performance tuition. Academic work includes research into the musical styles and histories of interpretation relevant to the student's instrument or voice. There is scope for research into issues of contemporary performance practice and the theory of performance, and into the relation between musical performance and other forms of musical practice. Students are expected to take a leading role in the performing activities of the University. Assessment is based on written coursework; public recitals including a concerto with the University Symphony Orchestra; a report from the student's instrumental or vocal teacher; and an oral examination.
