The MA Irish Traditional Music Performance is a one-year, full-time postgraduate programme designed to provide advanced tuition in the performance of Irish Traditional Music. Instrumental and vocal tuition is enabled by a community of world-renowned traditional performers and tutors.
Critical examination of repertoire sources and styles of performance, as well as an examination of modern vocational non-performance skills such as music business and music technology, form an essential part of the programme content. Elective modules allow the student to access the many areas of academic and performance expertise available at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.
Students of the programme have the opportunity to work with some of the finest
and most well known performers in traditional Irish music and related traditions. Weekly classes are provided by our permanent team of highly renowned instrumental tutors. A particular feature of the programme is the number of visiting tutors where students have unparalleled and extensive access to leading international performers.
