About us

Faculty of MusicWith its 17 academic staff, 9 affiliated lecturers, approximately 200 undergraduates and 75 graduate students, the Faculty of Music lies at the heart of a vast network of musical study, research and practice. As a highly rated research centre, our areas of special expertise include medieval and renaissance music, nineteenth-century music, opera, popular music, ethnomusicology, performance studies, composition, and scientific approaches to music: research students, postdoctoral fellows, college lecturers and distinguished international visitors work on a dizzying variety of topics. We host the Cambridge Centre for Musical Performance Studies (CMPS), which supports the work of the vast and unrivalled performance community in Cambridge and provides a platform for practice-based research into musical performance and the Centre for Music and Science (CMS). And our facilities are among the best in the country, including a fully professional concert hall, a music library, and the Centre for Music and Science with its purpose-built studio and music computing facilities. Period instruments and a Javanese gamelan are available for student use. All this is complemented by the libraries, practice rooms and other facilities available in colleges, as well as by the University Library—one of the world’s great libraries, housing over seven million volumes. But more than anything it is perhaps the larger musical environment that makes Cambridge so special.
