Conservatoire style training is intensive, practical and demanding. You can usually expect that the time you will spend in taught sessions will be considerable with self-led work and performances expected outside of these and a longer teaching year than many more traditional university style courses.
Committing to training in this way requires a great deal of personal discipline and motivation.
Training will be primarily practical and 'hands on'. The skills you will develop will have clear value in a professional context when you graduate.
Working collaboratively with your peers is fundamental to this training, as well as focusing on your own individual and personal development as an artist /practitioner.
