The MPhil is designed for students wishing to attain a thorough grounding in musical performance studies at an advanced level, either as a preparation for doctoral research or an autonomous qualification. In the first year, students will follow the MSt in Music (Performance), proceeding in the second year to individual supervision leading to the completion of a recital and a dissertation. This course introduces a broad range of current methodologies and approaches in music scholarship. The first year of the course is identical to that of the MSt in Music (Performance). Students will need to obtain an average of 68% for their first-year work overall, and a mark of over 70 in their final recital to proceed to the second year. The second year is then spent producing coursework, comprising both a recital of 45 minutes duration of at least two contrasted pieces, and a dissertation of between 17,000 and 19,000 words in musicology or ethnomusicology or a substantial edition with prefatory matter of comparable length.
