POPULAR MUSIC

What do we mean when we both study and play popular music? What exactly are we talking about when we consider the 21st century popular music industries? Our Popular Music degree enables you to appreciate the dynamic relationship between the rapidly changing practices involved with the creation, performance and marketing of popular music and its theoretical, methodological, professional/industrial, ethical and social contexts.

This degree offers a unique integrated three-strand approach - ‘performing’, ‘studying’, and ‘the business of’ - to create not only an opportunity to play popular music at a professional level, but also to consider the study of popular music as a text-based discourse. By studying this degree, you will gain the ability to perform and/or compose at a professional level and to apply stagecraft and technological excellence in a practical manner. You will also gain an understanding of the key developments relevant to the study of popular music industries of the 21st century, at both national and international levels.

Popular music is one of the UK’s largest industries and in recent years has experienced enforced reinvention as new media forms have changed not only sounds, but also the industrial process of popular music. Our Popular Music degree utilises a research-led teaching approach underpinned by both academic and industry-facing skills. It will provide you with personal and academic development, alongside work and performance-based experience, to ensure you graduate with the skills and knowledge base highly valued by employers.
