Music and Music Performance

The BMus Bachelor of Music is designed for students who wish to develop a deep understanding of music in the broadest sense whilst honing their specialist skills to professional standards.  The degree includes studies in musicianship, harmony, music history and a range of associated skills that provide a well-rounded set of transferable skills such as problem-solving, communication and teamwork.

The BA in Music Performance is a course that focuses on practice and is aimed primarily at students who wish to pursue a professional career in performance. 

Students will have access to world leading facilities and concert spaces, including the Sonic Lab which is housed in the world-renowned SARC facility. Teaching is delivered by a team of dedicated staff with a wide ranging expertise covering music performance, improvisation, composition and audio engineering. This ensures that graduates in music are equally employable in graduate jobs as they are in musical careers.

"I have made the most of my time studying Music at Queen’s, and that’s thanks to the fantastic staff and facilities. The teaching I have received has been amazing. In particular, one-on-one attention to the individual student has been important. Contact with groups such as the Ulster Orchestra, Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble and the Royal String Quartet has proven to be beneficial to my goal of being a performer one day myself."
