About us

Based in the beautiful 19th-century Clock House in a scenic part of Keele's 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. 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's vibrant musical community.

The Music Department hosts five studio areas with three computer music labs, eight practice rooms (including one specifically for drummers), a Motion Capture facility with Octaphonic audio and two large rehearsal spaces (including the Keele University Chapel) for orchestras, bands and choirs.
