Musicianship brings music alive by unlocking the foundations upon which our music system is built. 

This takes the student from the basics of theory, aural and diatonic harmony, through to complex dives into chromaticism, jazz harmony, serialism and how these are used in award winning popular music.

This discipline underpins all others and shapes our music making whether as performers, teachers or composers

mode of delivery

Students are required to attend live online (timetabled) lectures and participate in tutorials as well as undertake self study online (un-timetabled) via resources provided. You will also have readings, exercises and assignments to do as well as an End of Term test and/or recital.


Your lectures are all pre-recorded. This lets you go at your own pace and watch the lecture or parts of it again if you need to. You can feel secure while you study that the content you need is at your finger tips and you can reach out to your lecturers and our professionals for further advice.

Tutorials give you the opportunity for interaction and to ask questions. This is done through LIVE-Online classrooms, pre-recorded tutorials or other forums where you submit questions, recordings or your other work. You get feedback from staff and at times, from other students
