There is no other music department, in my experience, that is as free, open-minded, and completely suffused with creativity at every level as York. Thinking about the collective achievements, successes, and projects of the alumni over the last 50 years, I think everyone has tried to make their part of the musical world – whether as scholars, composers, performers, teachers, or in business, administration – a little bit more like York.
York Music graduates are creative, critical, independent thinkers. Our degree programmes develop these qualities through a modular teaching system.
Both flexible and challenging, we deliver a balanced musical education and develop key skills, providing you with opportunities to specialise and pursue your own choices of study under expert guidance.
