Overview

The DMA is aimed at those wishing to undertake advanced research in music composition or performance. It involves scholarly research in the form of a supervised research thesis and performance practice (such as a public music performance or the presentation of compositions).

Students make a significant contribution both intellectually and in practice to either the interpretative and/or technical practice of musical performance, or the technical and creative practice of musical composition.
