The launch of the John Lunn Scholarship coincides with the launch of two new Postgraduate taught programmes in music – the MMus in Musicology and the MMus in Composition and Creative Practice, further details of which can be found below:

The MMus in Musicology presents a broad, multi-dimensional approach to Music as a key component of numerous contemporary cultural practices. Building on a thorough grounding in the methodological roots, you’ll be able to specialise in a range of professional fields and will be supported by a team of world-leading researchers, providing an up-to-date, interdisciplinary exploration of historiographical, analytical, sociological, and critical approaches, and opening opportunities for reflection on a broad range of musical traditions, performing styles and recording media.  

The MMus in Composition and Creative Practice is designed to enable students to develop their compositional practice in a dynamic, rigorous and supportive creative environment. It aims to provide training in a range of approaches, introducing tools and techniques relevant to today’s music making, and encouraging exploration, innovation and experimentation.
