During the four years, students will undertake practical, theoretical, and historical studies in three central genres: popular, classical, and traditional Irish music. Performance and Musicianship modules take place across all four years and are designed to bring a student from beginner to advanced practitioner over the course of the degree. Modules also introduce students to a variety of career paths in music, including music journalism, songwriting, music technology, business, and education. In-depth modules in musicology, popular musicology, and ethnomusicology prepare students for postgraduate studies in musicology. Creativity is developed in all aspects of the course through modules such as Technology for Performance, Music for the Ear: Electroacoustic Music, Music & Image, and Conducting & Ensemble Directing. Performance is an important part of the degree course, and students participate in a range of groups and ensembles. Students will progress to specialization in a genre of their choice in the third and fourth years. Solo instrumental skills are developed throughout the four years, with one-on-one tuition provided during the course of study. Students perform regularly in both formal and informal settings and attend concerts and masterclasses given by visiting professionals. Modules in musicology, ethnomusicology, and popular musicology also prepare students for further study at the postgraduate level. Creativity is developed in all aspects of the course, and students benefit from the collaborative ethos of the Department of Creative Arts, Media, and Music.
