What our students think

I chose this University due to the flexibility of the course - which allows for great specialisation within your subject - and the teaching staff. I have chosen to focus on classical guitar performance and composition, and because of this I have opportunities to perform regularly and have pieces played by fellow students.

It’s inspiring to be in an environment where the whole body is striving for and achieving great things.

I’ll be releasing my album, gigging, selling the album and really trying to build a career doing that. I’m also planning on applying for BBC Radio apprenticeships, as it would not only be good work experience but an opportunity to meet lots of contacts.

The lecturers at Southampton are second to none; I have an amazing instrumental teacher and lots of performance opportunities, both within and outside the course. The campus and facilities are fantastic.

Now, three years after graduating, I have just secured my first job as a music therapist having completed a Masters in Music Therapy training course.

Music has some fantastic lecturers, making learning fun! You study a huge range of different types of music: jazz, pop, ethnomusicology, ‘classical’, also music technology, composition and performance. Turner Sims is also an excellent venue to perform in.

From leading James Corden’s vocal warm ups, to maintaining an open sound when performing eight shows a week in the West End, I use the skills I developed in my degree every day.
