Why study music

When you come to study music at Kingston you will receive plenty of support through your studies. We want everyone who starts one of our courses to complete it and are committed to supporting all of our students to achieve academically, creatively and personally.

Our music courses cover a wide range of different musical genres and types. You'll be able to specialise more and focus on your specialist areas of interest and expertise in your third year. We will also prepare you for the world of work (or further study) that awaits you after graduation.

You'll receive training in academic skills, enabling you to express yourself as effectively as possible in both written and verbal formats, to carry out research and to formulate cogent and well-informed arguments.

Your comprehension of music theory, technical and technological skills, like recording and production, will be developed, enabling you to understand how music is put together and what gives it coherence. You'll also learn how to analyse music in a wide range of ways.

As part of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes students will learn to use and maintain analogue technology in recording and production. Besides course related teaching, the Visconti Studio also organises special master classes, a Winterschool, and special recording sessions with international artists including Mary Epworth. In the Visconti Studio, every student is part of our mission: to preserve the sounds and practices of the analogue past for the digital future.
