Based at Liverpool Hope’s Creative Campus, the Music Department boasts teaching and research specialisms in a number of areas. The Department has a number of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
We work closely with our partner organisations to enhance our teaching and to explore exciting research possibilities. Our major partner is the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO). During their time with us, all undergraduate students have the opportunity to study composition and to have their pieces workshopped by members of the RLPO. The Music Department also has partnerships with The European Opera Centre, Milapfest (Indian Music and Dance), The Beatles Story, and the City’s two cathedrals.
We are housed in the University’s Capstone Building, which is also home to the Capstone Theatre. We are one of only a handful of All-Steinway Music Schools in the UK. We also have specialised teaching spaces, including a suite of electroacoustic facilities, a popular music studies resources centre, and a band room. We own two harpsichords and a chamber organ.
We enjoy a flourishing musical life, with many ensembles and extra-curricular performance opportunities. Students get many performance opportunities, and the Department runs a regular student lunchtime concert series and open-mic nights.
The National Student Survey (www.thestudentsurvey.com) asks final year students at every publicly funded Higher Education Institution (HEI) in the UK to rate their experience by stating to what extent they agree with a set of 23 core questions across eight categories.
