Teaching Responsibilities

Programme Director, BMus (Hons) Community Music 

The BMus (Hons) Community Music programme is an established and innovative programme unique in Scotland. The programme prepares you for a flexible career as a musical practitioner who is able to work across a spectrum of community and educational settings, combining a wide range of community based, education and musical skills.

From the commencement of your specialist studies on the programme you will engage extensively in placement learning across settings of your own choosing and interest, allowing you to develop and define your personal identity as a community musician. In your fourth year you will have the opportunity to design and implement your own project with the full support of your peers, community partners, visiting specialists and the programme team.
