This can only be done with a fluent level of technical and expressive skill, and the range of support included for the development of performance skills is extensive, including weekly individual tuition in your instrument or voice, group performance skills development, masterclass attendance at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford and at the University of Chichester, band and ensemble participation, and a consultation with an external specialist each semester. This process ensures that the regular support you receive from tutors who are familiar to you is complemented by invaluable exposure to other professional views and the experience of practising contemporary musicians. Students study the work of specialists in their own performance field, develop a lecture recital and research relevant areas of repertoire and performance practice. The dissertation takes the form of a recital, presented at the beginning of the following academic year.
