The School of Music is one of the largest music departments in the UK and we welcome undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers from across the world every year.
We have over 25 members of staff with a wide range of specialisms and interests, and a rotating cast of instrumental and vocalist teachers.
In 2017, we were awarded the prestigious All-Steinway status enriching the experience of our students and attracting world-class performers and academics from across the globe.
We work with organisations across the city and the country to deliver outstanding events for students, staff and the public.
The University is the Principal Partner for the Leeds International Piano Competition and hosted the second round and semi-finals in September 2018, which saw competitors drawn from over 16 countries and territories compete.
