About the course
Our Music (Popular) programme allows you to explore songwriting, performance, studio production and critical musicology in a friendly, supportive environment. You’ll take a hands-on approach to music-making, learning in workshops, band rehearsals, seminars, and lectures. Hull is home to some of the finest music facilities in the country. You can enjoy 24-hour access to state-of-the-art industry standard recording studios as well as brand new rehearsal rooms and performance spaces, including the newly refurbished concert auditorium the Middleton Hall. These facilities allow you to develop as a musician, working towards your third year modules where you can concentrate on an album or a live performance as the culmination of your studies.
You'll be guided by staff who are active performers, composers, producers and researchers. Our expertise underpins the wide range of modules available, allowing you to tailor the degree to your interests and career aspirations. In addition you will get to meet and work with a whole range of professional musicians and producers who visit the campus. There are also fantastic opportunities to get involved in a wealth of extracurricular activities. These include staff-led ensembles, such as Escola de Samba, as well as student-led bands, and a range of workshops, collaborative projects and productions.
