The BA in Music offers a broad range of units in musicology, composition and performance, across diverse styles and genres. These are complemented by weekly concerts, regular masterclasses and performances in the department, and opportunities to get involved in the dynamic music scene in the city of Bristol. Students will be taught by internationally recognised musicologists and composers and by a team of professional instrumental and vocal tutors. Students will discuss and analyse music and musical culture; arrange, conduct and compose; and perform music to a high level. The first year lays a solid foundation in musicology and composition and (if chosen) performance, preparing students for more advanced study in subsequent years. In years two and three most of the curriculum is optional. Students might specialise in their particular area of interest or explore a more varied selection from acoustic and studio composition, performance, editing, analysis and research-led history units, covering such topics as medieval music, opera, romanticism, music and war, aesthetics, film music, music and migration, and African-American music.
