Course overview 

Use your music talents to work with people in a broad range of educational and community settings. Learn how to inspire, motivate and organise others to enjoy music-making.

The course is based at Sage Gateshead and you will be part of the community of musicians at one of the UK’s most exciting music venues. You will be regularly involved with visiting artists and masterclasses as well as participation projects that have already reached over a million people across the North-East.

You’ll be taught by musicians from Sage Gateshead and academic tutors from the University. Our professional teaching, together with the excellent facilities, has earned our courses a strong reputation.

The skills of musicianship and educatorship are developed in parallel, so that each informs the other, resulting in a well-rounded musician with an appropriate set of skills for a ‘portfolio’ career in music. As a ‘musician who also teaches’, the range of career paths for our graduates includes youth work, teaching music, performing arts and social work.

Modular structure

Teaching methods include projects, feedback on performances, lectures, seminars and e-learning. We encourage you to develop independent study skills and to initiate your own projects with the support of tutors and other students.

In your first year you will shadow and work alongside experienced music leaders and facilitators. By your final year you’ll have developed the skills to design, manage, implement and evaluate a major project in a community setting, and stage a performance within Sage Gateshead’s public programme which showcases you as a musician. Throughout the course our tutors will encourage you to develop valuable skills in communication, teamwork and problem-solving.

Assessment methods include projects, presentations, essays, critical evaluations and public performances.
