Degree Module: Creativity is more important than knowledge


SCQF level 7


This module is part of the BA (Hons) Applied Music degree and aims to allow individuals to study composition, musical theory and notation in a collaborative and interactive way. Complex tasks are set and discussed in a video conference and then individuals work independently and collaboratively to develop creative responses.

You will undertake a one-day induction in June and then study from September.
