Guildhall School of Music & Drama launch new Masters degree

Guildhall School of Music & Drama has announced a new postgraduate Electronic Music degree. Starting in September 2020, the two-year course will equip students with practical and project-based skills for professional careers in the industry. Students will also be given the opportunity to have access to creative companies working in the fields of film scores, gaming, songwriting and production.

Mike Roberts, head of Electronic Music & Music Technology, said: “For 20 years we’ve been pioneering a one-to-one approach to teaching in these growth areas and the new postgraduate course allows us to extend the vitality of this approach to even more musicians.”

The conservatoire also offers the chance for Electronic Music students to work regularly with the professional musicians of the Guildhall Session Orchestra, an ensemble created specifically to bring to life music produced by the Electronic Music department. Students will be able to gain experience by working with the Production Arts department with clients such as Museum of London, for example for on the museum’s current exhibition Beasts of London.

Applications for September 2020 entry have just opened and will close in October.
