With a wide range of world-class music venues and resources on our doorstep, the prestigious Music Department at King’s is one of the best places to expand your musical knowledge.  

We offer high-level teaching and a flourishing research culture in performance, composition, musicology, ethnomusicology, sound studies, jazz and popular music studies, enabling you to choose from a wide range of modules across numerous musical disciplines.

We benefit in particular from long-standing links with the Royal Academy of Music and the School of Oriental and African Studies, while students studying composition also enjoy workshops given by visiting professional musicians including the ensemble Lontano.

You will have the opportunity to work in a friendly and intellectually-stimulating environment, taught by experts in their field – not to mention access to newly renovated music practice rooms, overlooking the Thames.
