The amenities which will help to facilitate your music studies.
Our 250-seat Concert Hall hosts our annual concert series, as well as a wide range of student concerts.
It houses two concert grand pianos (Steinway and Bösendorfer), a two-manual pipe organ, a chamber organ, a fortepiano, two harpsichords and various other early keyboard instruments, as well as percussion instruments, all of which are available for student use.
Learning and teaching facilities
The main Music Building has over two dozen practice rooms, three ensemble rooms and four electro-acoustic studios, including a main recording studio fully equipped to industry standard.
In addition to the practice rooms, there are also rooms especially set aside for percussion, harp, organ (a two-manual Allen practice organ) and double-bass players, together with several secure rooms for instrument storage.
Computers in our Mac Suite all run the latest Sibelius software and there are a number of dedicated Digital Audio Workstations.
Our four electro-acoustic studios are fully acoustically treated and equipped to industry standards, including ProTools, Logic Pro, and numerous software instruments, sample banks and plugins.
Our main studio has an attached live room for multitrack recording, voiceovers, and overdubs.
Music library collection
Our library collection, located in the Arts and Social Studies Library, is the premier music research library in the Southwest UK.
We have thousands of books and scores, including rare critical text, first editions and facsimiles covering the depth and breadth of the western art music tradition, and a growing collection to support ethnomusicology, popular music, and film studies.
Our expert subject librarian is available to assist with specialist training on study skills and research resources.
A suite of rooms are available for postgraduate students on the top floor of 37 Corbett Road, located next to the main Music Building. Music postgraduates have 24-access to these facilities, which include computer rooms, a listening room, photocopying facilities, a common room and a kitchen.
