  • Popular music performance and / or audio production and / or business

  • Songwriting / composition

  • The production and distribution of popular music

  • Music entrepreneurship

  • Music in the community

You will join a dynamic team delivering a collaborative, contemporary, research-based student experience, contributing to our popular J.A.M.E.S. accredited BA (Hons) Commercial Music and MA Music programmes as well as our partner deliveries at North College Lanarkshire and Rome Contemporary Music College.
