Singer? Guitarist? Piano player? Looking to tune your skills and add a new string to your bow in the music industry? This is the course for you! This Level 3 qualification in Music Performance will allow you to develop as both an individual artist and a collaborator. You will develop skills as part of an ensemble, whilst continuing to cultivate your own individual style. Time will be given to exploring how to write your own music and also build your love of music into a sustainable career.
