Careers and your future in Music

Whether you want a career as a composer, a singer-songwriter, a producer, a performer, a DJ, a noise artist, an improviser, a curator or a music journalist - our brand new, bold and broad-based programme is for you.

Each musician is unique and the presentation and technology skills you develop at Brunel attract employers across the board. We place you at the centre of your own learning, mentoring and supporting your ambition whether that’s setting up a music production company or a recording studio, or developing a career as a performer, composer, teacher or music therapist

Our graduates are highly-skilled, self-confident, inquisitive, robust and thoroughly-employable musicians who have performed at prestigious venues and festivals in the UK and abroad. They’ve released albums spanning many genres. Some are developing strong reputations as composers, performers and sound artists. You’ll find Brunel graduates at the Arts Council, Universal (Decca) and the English National Opera. Many continue to postgraduate study at universities or conservatoires. Some are teachers, technicians or work in arts administration, publishing, media and management careers.

You can also combine your music-making with other disciplines such as theatre, creative writing, design, journalism and games. We also offer a placement year, and with our unrivalled network of contacts across the music industry, this will provide you with that all-important link to the world of work.
