One year (full-time)
This is intensive professional training for highly skilled musicians embarking on a career as a musical director.
Mountview is one of the UK’s leading musical theatre trainers and the ideal springboard for a career in musical direction. The course is suited to advanced pianists, accompanists and conductors who have proven experience working with singers, actors and instrumentalists. There is a maximum of six places available each year.
The course takes place five days per week over 42 weeks split into three terms. (Exact dates will depend on practical show assignments)
Course components are individually timetabled for each student. Across the year you will have tutorials with leading practitioners and industry specialists, assist professional musical directors on in-house and public productions and lead musically on selected performances. Assessment is based on work throughout the course. You will prepare for an MA project through a series of seminars and tutorials. At the end of the year there will be a showing of your work with an invited audience.
