Guildhall School announce a new postgraduate Electronic Music degree

Guildhall School has just announced a new postgraduate Electronic Music degree which commences in September 2020, making it the only London conservatoire to offer the subject at postgraduate level. This one-to-two year programme focuses on preparing graduates for professional life and offers students the opportunity to specialise in many growth areas of the creative industries, including film music, game audio, song writing and production.

Guildhall School has been awarded a grant of just over £984,000 by the Arts & Humanities Research Council for an international consortium, led by Guildhall School, to undertake a three-year investigation into the social impact of making music entitled ‘Music for social impact: practitioners’ contexts, work and beliefs’. It is the largest research grant Guildhall has received to date. The research, scheduled to begin in early 2020, is led by Guildhall School Research Professor John Sloboda OBE.

The School is to launch a range of coaching and mentoring courses for the wider sector, to commence in autumn 2019, accredited by the European Mentoring & Coaching Council and delivered in association with specialist coaching provider, Linden Learning. Coaching & mentoring is increasingly seen as an essential tool in helping to bridge the gap between potential and performance in the workplace, and reflects Guildhall School’s ethos of supporting, challenging and inspiring growth at a world-class performing arts institution.
