CASE STUDY: Music in the Community

A number of our taught modules engage with the wider community through placements or studies. Music in the Community, launched in 2013, explores the potential of running Community Music events with organisations in Sheffield. Music Education placement-based module, and our Arts Administration feasibility studies, also offer students and groups in the city the chance to complete sustained pieces of work to benefit both parties.
