Short courses

Music can be studied from a wide variety of perspectives: by reading, listening, performing and composing; by studying composers and musical forms; by exploring the music of the past and the present, and the music of other countries; and by investigating the relationships between the various parts of a composition. 

Some music courses can be studied for credit which means they can count towards a recognised qualification.

Weekly classes and day schools

Our music weekly classes are ten weeks in duration and take place in Oxford on a weekday evening or during the day. Music day schools usually take place in Oxford on a Saturday. 

Online course
