Faculty of Music
Community home page
The Cambridge Faculty of Music, one of the oldest and most famous university music departments in the world, remains at the forefront of research and education. It was awarded an "Excellent" in the Music Teaching Quality Assessment, and the top (5*) rating in the last Research Assessment Exercise (2001). We offer wide-ranging and stimulating courses at both undergraduate and graduate level, as well as tremendous opportunities for all levels of practical music-making; and through the college teaching system we give students a unique chance to study intensively and in small groups with internationally distinguished scholars.
The Faculty is housed in the University Music School on West Road. Around one hundred and eighty undergraduates and forty postgraduates work in the Faculty, which has six University Lecturers, five Readers, two Professors and large number of Affiliated Lecturers and Research Fellows. All our teaching and much of our research happens in the University Music School, a spacious building completed in the early 1980s. Our facilities are amongst the best in the country, and include the Pendlebury Music Library, the University Concert Hall (seating 500), an Ethnomusicology Laboratory, a large collection of historical instruments and a Centre for Music and Science with purpose-built recording studio and computing centre.
