Faculty of Music


All music study is creative in some way, but Creative Practice specialists blend artistic production and reflection in ways that give precedence to the ‘arts’ and ‘performance’ sides of music study. Cambridge’s team offers exceptional variety, with pioneering work in Performance Studies complementing dynamic work in acoustic composition, sound composition, and documentary film-making.
