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.
We have All-Steinway status, enriching the experience of our students and attracting 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 events for the Competition in 2021.
The School of Music is actively working to build a diverse and inclusive school community that supports all staff and students. Our Equality and Inclusion Lead is Dr Johnathan Price. You can find out more about our current projects and access staff and student resources here.
