While this information below outlines all that we normally offer, the current impact of Covid-19 means that we have had to adapt to social distancing guidelines and respond to any changes in government regulations. To that end, some of these activities may be adapted or temporarily suspended, while additional appropriate activities will be added to help maintain a thorough, engaging and informative musical journey. Newsletters will offer full information. Please subscribe for regular updates.
Music is an integral part of student life, indeed of life itself, and making music is something that QMUL is very proud to encourage and achieve.
QMUL's location within London is unique in terms of its mix of educational and artistic culture. Based around The People's Palace, we belong to a profound history of arts provision, which has long enriched and developed the lives of those in London's East End.
Musical activities support learning and personal development and encompass ensemble work, workshops and specialist coaching. These are realised through university organised performance platforms, either in public concerts or internal events such as Graduation Ceremonies. Music at QMUL also presents an ever-increasing range of events and concerts that are designed to inspire and introduce outstanding and formative musical experiences.
QMUL is blessed in having many exceptional and historic performance spaces that our musicians are able to perform in.
QMUL offers music scholarships to students. These offer grants to cover the costs of instrumental or vocal tuition by exceptional London based teachers. We also offer students and staff opportunities to learn be they beginners or advanced musicians.
There is a vibrant musical culture at QMUL, with music societies based at the Mile End and Whitechapel campuses. The range of activities currently offered include orchestras, choirs and a cappella groups and ensembles of various kinds embracing classical, jazz, fusion, improvisation and world music.
There has never been a better time to be part of Music at QMUL. We hope you enjoy being part of all that is QMUL, and we know that your participation in making music will enrich your student experience and personal development.
Dr Paul Max Edlin, Director of Music
