MA Irish Music Studies
The MA Irish Music Studies caters for people who wish to study Irish Music (traditional, folk, classical and related genres) from critical, cultural, historical, musicological, and analytical perspectives. The programme draws upon considerable expertise from across the Academy’s wide range of disciplinary approaches, exploring and expanding ideas of what constitutes ‘Irish music’, from historical and contemporary perspectives. The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance has become a leading centre for the study of Irish traditional music in particular, and while this genre informs some of the content of this Masters, it is one of a number of Irish musics that may be pursued as part of the programme. You are also encouraged to engage with the discourse through your own performance/compositional practice, if desired and where appropriate.
