Pedagogy and Community

We are proud of the instrumental teacher and music leader education we offer at RBC. We strive to ensure that our graduates are equipped to engage, inspire and support music making in children, young people and adults in diverse communities and contexts. As such, our Alumni enjoy fulfilling portfolio careers.

We offer core and optional modules in community engagement and/or pedagogy across all four years of our BMus and BMus Jazz courses, as well as at taught postgraduate level. We also supervise research projects in pedagogy at all levels, including doctoral study.

Students are offered numerous opportunities to develop their teaching and workshop leadership skills beyond the lecture room through credit-bearing placements, volunteering schemes, engagement with external organisations, and through our Learning and Participation Department.
