Overview

The Music  programme offered by the University of Bristol  provides access to a wide network of opportunities for professional and amateur performance.

In musicology, research strengths include not only the Western art music tradition, but screen media, non-Western and popular music. We have particular depth of expertise in the early Middle Ages (especially Spain), and in the 19th and 20th centuries (including the music of France, Britain and Soviet Russia). We also have expertise in Anglophone vernacular traditions including jazz and hip hop; in opera, film, music and the history and philosophy of technology, music and migration, and cultural and reception history more generally.
