Short Courses

Music

Our popular music courses explore many musical genres and develop practical musicianship skills. As well as offering courses on individual composers, performers and musical periods, we offer courses through which students can enjoy making music together. No experience necessary!

Please note that from September 2017, bookings for non-credit courses will close 8 days before a course start date. Bookings for credit courses will close 15 days before a course start date.
