Year 12 Music Study Day

Partnered with University of Sheffield

Sheffield University warmly invites Year 12 Music students to their free 'Music Study Day', taking place in the Department of Music on Thursday 29 June, 9.30am - 3.30pm.  

The event is designed to give students a taste of what university-level study in music is like, challenging them to work creatively with unfamiliar topics and approaches in a discursive small-group teaching environment.  Following a brief introduction, participants will select from a menu of workshops led by the Department's academic staff on the following topics:

- Sound Synthesis using free software

- Prompting the musical mind

- Emotions in music performance: anxiety and enjoyment

- Tradition v. Technology: Folk music in the digital age

- Composition

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.  Please note: places are limited, so we would advise you to book early.  They expect participants to engage with the full programme of events, from the 9.30am start until 3.30pm close and ask that they make their travel arrangements around these times.  Teachers are welcome to accompany their group (equally, we are happy for pupils to attend unaccompanied). 

To book a place please visit the online registration form.

They hope to inspire participants to carry their music studies through to the next level.  Please note: the event follows a different format to an Open Day and will not involve a full recruitment 'pitch'.  Students considering applying to study music at university should seek to attend Open Days in addition.

If you have any questions about the event please don't hesitate to contact l.billam@sheffield.ac.uk
