Welcome to the UCC School of Music; a hub of creativity. Being a successful musician means being multi-skilled, focused and entrepreneurial. That’s the kind of student profile we are looking for.
Imagination and innovation form the foundation of the world’s booming creative economies. With your future employability as a versatile and highly-skilled musician at the core of what we do, we will help hone your skills and encourage you to become an adaptive and reflective practitioner.
The School of Music is an active partner with the many arts organisations in and around Essex, working closely with Essex Music Education Hub, the Roman River Festival, BBC Essex, Colchester Arts Centre, the Headgate Theatre and the Mercury Theatre to ensure you gain real-world employment experiences. As a student, you will benefit from performing at venues close-by, such as the Soundhouse, the Headgate Theatre, the Mercury Theatre and festivals at Castle Park, helping to build your experience, portfolio and future employability.
You will also benefit from inter-disciplinary collaborations, working alongside Performing Arts and Technical Theatre students to bring shows to life.
