Based in the beautiful 19th-century Clock House in a scenic part of Keele University’s rural campus, Music and Music Technology’s undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes provide advanced musical training while developing our students’ professional skills, critical thinking and creativity. 

Like the University as a whole – no. 1 in the UK for overall student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2014 & 2015) – our programmes are highly rated by our students. Our staff of composers, musicologists and performers includes world-leading specialists in classical music, the digital arts, popular music, screen scoring and world music. At the heart of our research is a commitment to contemporary music of all kinds.  

Music and Music Technology, in turn, are the heart of Keele University’s thriving musical community. There is a strong performing tradition at Keele, and many of our students participate in the Keele Philharmonic Orchestra, Voices, Symphonia, Concert Band and Brass Band. At any one time, other ensembles at Keele range from recorder groups to speed metal bands. The Keele Philharmonic Society – mostly run by students – supports much of this flourishing activity. The Keele Music Forum offers recitals, workshops and research seminars from visiting speakers and performers, and the Keele Concerts Society runs a professional concert series throughout the academic year – with Music and Music Technology students receiving free or heavily discounted tickets to experience an impressive array of internationally-acclaimed performers.
