Certificate: The Practice of Music Making
The Certificate: The Practice of Music Making is a unique one-year distance learning programme developed by Trinity Laban, in partnership with the Open University.
Delivered online with a residential learning week at Trinity Laban in London, CPMM is available as a stand-alone programme, and can also count towards degree study with the Open University.
The programme is designed for adult instrumentalists and singers who participate in any genre of music and there are no auditions to gain entry. It’s suited to those who make music regularly in a group or ensemble who would like to further develop their skills. You might be an army musician, jazz, folk, rock or pop performer, sing in a choir or play in an orchestra, for example.
Perfect for those who have learned to sing or play music without gaining a formal qualification, those who wish to return to music making after a time away and those who have previously studied music and wish to further develop their performance skills.
