I loved my degree. There's the right mix of practical and theoretical in both the course work and the assessment, meaning you'll get a fair balance of what works best for you. The course is fun and varied, with a huge variety of modules to suit any musical journey. I personally went down a teaching route, looking at music in education and the community, doing performance on the side. You could also specialise in composition and improvisation if you would prefer. Both of these routes offer chance to be in a variety of different musical groups, from theatre to classical, and from African to Javanese. The new course also offers an experimental music module, opening the mind to more contemporary and "out there" works. The lecturers are fun and easy to get along with, and the facilities are great.
I would go back and do it all again if I could. I'm so glad I chose YSJ.
