What will I learn?

Overview

Whether you're a recent graduate or returning to study after a break, our postgraduate programmes in Vocal Performance provide you with advanced-level training in singing. You're encouraged and enabled to increase your experience as a performer and to broaden your repertoire, though you can also take the opportunity to specialise if you wish.

Alongside your vocal studies, our courses provide excellent opportunities for you to develop other skills relevant to a future career in the music profession. A separate postgraduate pathway is available for Jazz vocalists.

You'll receive specialist vocal 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. Such opportunities include not only classes and masterclasses (these last being led by distinguished guest performers), but also in concerts and on the operatic stage.

What's covered in the course?

  • Regular individual specialist vocal tuition from leading UK and internationally renowned performers and teachers.
  • Regular vocal classes, including song classes, repertoire classes, and historical performance practice classes.
  • Bespoke language, stagecraft and dance classes.
  • Access to masterclasses with distinguished visiting guest artists.
  • Frequent chances to perform, including solo and ensemble
  • The chance to audition for our operas and musicals, which are fully staged productions in a professional venue, and frequently double-cast to allow the maximum number of students to benefit from the experience.
