Our diploma course is designed to introduce you not just to a range of music, but to a wide variety of ways of thinking about and understanding music. Its focus is on giving you a solid grounding in the techniques and history of the Indian & Bollywood Musical tradition, as well as an understanding of the many role music plays in today’s world. We recognize that not everybody comes to the course having had teaching in all areas. So, a candidate must enrol themselves to Basic studies which allows those from all backgrounds to gain the core skills needed for advanced diploma-level music studies.
As you progress, you will experience the freedom to take specialised courses in different kinds of music, and approaches to study it. You may also choose to follow a particular pathway through the diploma, be that in performance, composition, music history, ethno musicology, popular music, or music and science.
The Diploma curriculum covers Vocal, Instrument as well as Music Production which delves further into the practical, technological, historical and theoretical aspects of both Western and Hindustani music, encouraging students to specialise in their chosen field whilst still exploring the full spectrum of musical subject areas.
The programme develops each student’s potential as a budding professional, by expanding on knowledge and skills gained overall.
