Career and Course Articles: 

Disc jockeys (DJs) select and play pre-recorded music for many different audiences. However, most professional DJs do much more than just playing music.

DJs can use various formats, including vinyl, CD or digitally stored music, and a range of equipment, such as turntables, mixers, microphones and amplifiers.

Performing Arts

Career and Course Articles: 

The performing arts sector covers the mediums of acting, dance and music, when they are carried out in front of an audience.

The obvious careers within this profession are those of the performers themselves – the actors, dancers and musicians.

However, there are a host of other people who work behind the scenes to ensure the smooth running of a production.

Within music there are also conductors and managers. In dance, choreographers will create routines for the show that they are working on.

Why study Music?


Studying music at university is a wonderfully enriching cultural experience. It's also a challenging educational one. A university degree course in music is traditionally more academic than a course at a college of Music; here the emphasis is primarily on performance.
