Single Subject Courses

The Academy of Music and Drama offers a large number of single subject courses every term. The subjects vary as do the levels of the courses.

To be eligible for our single subject courses, basic qualifications are required as well as special qualifications in some cases. Documentation of your qualifications may be required for admission, as well as other materials such as recordings or an interview etc.

Applications to courses can be made by someone who has already been admitted and is attending one or other educational programme as well as by external applicants who wish to broaden existing knowledge and skills or acquire a deeper degree of specialisation in some field.

During the past year, independent courses have been available in conducting, improvisation, music drama, world music ensemble, sound design, counterpoint, orchestration, organ, rhythmics and vocal method, among other subjects.
