Birmingham Conservatoire is one of the leading music colleges in the UK. Part of the University of Central England it is the largest University Music department in Britain. Birmingham Conservatoire is a music college of international stature which trains students to the highest possible professional standards of solo performance, composition, chamber music, orchestral playing and teaching. Practical work is supported by sound theoretical programme and students are encouraged to adopt a broad and enquiring approach to their studies.
As students belong to one of four Schools and take part in organised activities as appropriate to course requirements: their chosen Principal Study is at all times maintained as the major element of their curriculum. However, we aim to balance this depth of study with a breadth of opportunities in such a way as to accommodate and nurture each individual's particular talents. Self-discipline and team spirit are encouraged in the development of professional attitudes and flexible musicianship.
