The course is taught by industry professors and is informed by a deep understanding of the commercial music business.   FOUNDATION YEAR   BMus Contemporary Performance & Production is complemented by a foundation year course aimed at students whose musical skills need to be improved to gain entry to UG. Study at this level is designed to provide students with a structured music education, for example if you have not studied music formally at Level 3 or have previously had access to private music lessons. The course is constructed so that students learn and gain sufficient musical, industrial and study skills.It focuses on ensuring that students develop a basic level of technique on the chosen main instrument.
