We use an electronic learning environment with an expanding portfolio of online library resources from anywhere at any time.

The Music department offers several soundproofed practice rooms for rehearsals and lessons, as well as lecture and seminar rooms. The Chapel is a fantastic venue for performances and rehearsals, and is the centre piece of the campus.

The Learning Resource is the hub of the learning environment.? It has two upper floors of library resources, one for silent study and one for quiet study, both of which have recently been refurbished. On the ground floor, you’ll find the Support and Information Zone, Media Centre, Otter Gallery, Costa Coffee and a variety of IT resources.

Postgraduate study options available at Chichester include:?

Indicative modules

The Roots of Jazz

This module will explore the roots of jazz, primarily focussing on the development of jazz between 1890 and 1930 and critically analysing the social, political and cultural context in New Orleans.?

Modern Jazz: Seven Steps to Heaven

(Module information to come)

Arranging for Jazz

The ability to take standard repertoire from the jazz canon and rearrange it into your own personal vision is another key skill within the jazz domain. To develop a personal repertoire of arrangements and compositions is an essential ingredient in eventually getting gigs and professional work outside of the university learning environment.?

Postmodern Jazz

In this module we seek to find answers in a postmodern jazz world, and ask if the intrinsic identity of jazz has been lost and where it can go from here. By listening, playing, and?analysing?jazz from the 50's to the present day we can gain an understanding of its evolution since Coltrane.

Introduction to Jazz Theory

Jazz theory is an important part of the overall development and toolbox of the developing jazz musician.?This module will explore harmony, melody and rhythmic aspects of jazz theory and will seek to demonstrate through group analysis, how these components can be applied to standard jazz repertoire.

Jazz Repertoire

This module will explore a different composer and selected compositions each week. The pieces will be analysed both theoretically and contextually and different versions and arrangements of the piece will also be looked at.?

Approaches to Performance

Communicative performance

Ensemble

Students will focus on producing a professional standard in performance, demonstrating confidence within the chosen repertoire(s) and technical and expressive maturity. An appropriate balance in programming and the ability to lean towards either a supporting or leadership role, chamber or accompanied performance or accompaniment itself reflects the culmination of a progressive development of individuality as a?practioner. Students will also develop their skills in hosting events and presenting the work to others.

As you progress through your degree programme, you’ll need to enhance and build on your skills as a musician, as a performer and as a scholar. In making your module choices, you‘re able to draw on study skills modules that you feel are relevant to your personal developmental needs. Some of the study skills modules you might take are:

Teaching and assessment

Jazz Studies within the Music Subject Area at the University of Chichester aims to provide students with high quality tuition combined with an exciting and enjoyable educational journey that challenges the individual through practical and theoretical skills.

All students within the department have opportunities to become part of the jazz community, whether they are jazz musicians or not, and the curriculum encourages students to develop an appreciation of jazz as music of diversity, inclusivity and creativity.

These values underpin the ethos of the teaching and are embedded within the curriculum so our students, who will inherit this growing tradition, foster a lifelong learning attitude to any creative endeavour and can appreciate jazz as a collaborative community art form.

Can I park on-site, and are there disabled parking available on both campuses?
