Our facilities

The School of Music provides dedicated, purpose-built facilities for students including four lecture theatres, performance spaces, specialist software and a range of rehearsal rooms all based in one building. Our instrument collection includes a specially commissioned gamelan, historic and modern keyboard instruments and a large selection of orchestral and world percussion.

At the heart of our School is the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall, a performance space which hosts a large and varied programme of concerts in term time. As a student in the School you'll also be able to go along to the International Concert Series programme free of charge and student performers also regularly feature in the programme.

We also have All-Steinway status, meaning that all 29 pianos housed, and available for use by all our students in the School, are Steinways. £742,000 was invested in the pianos – a combination of uprights, baby grands and concert grands.

Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall

The Concert Hall boasts a multi-channel sound system for the live projection of electronic music, comprising a large array of top-of-the-range Genelec loudspeakers.

Concert Hall foyer and bar

The space includes a fully licensed bar, stage area with accompanying ambient lighting for performances, screens for promotional materials, and a variety of seating for students, staff and visitors.
