We provide specialist education of the highest quality at the leading edge of music and dance training, which reflects the increasingly collaborative world of artistic practice and supports the lifelong career development of students and professional performing artists.

Department Coordinators provide organisational support to Heads of Department within the Faculty of Music, coordinating departmental and performance activities. Working closely with students, teaching staff, external artists and members of the management team, Department Coordinators support the successful delivery of classes, workshops and performances.
