Within the Master of Music (MMus), you have the opportunity to develop further as an instrumentalist, vocalist or composer. You do this by drawing up and following your own personal study plan.
What will you learn? It's up to you. What do you want to learn and achieve in the two years? You will write a plan in consultation with your mentor and main subject teacher. You will compile a curriculum based on your plans and ambitions. From being trained in business or organisational skills, stage presentation, and coaching in reflection and research, to main subject lessons, masterclasses, clinics, ensemble coaching and other group lessons. You can also take courses at other HKU schools such as Art and Economics or Music and Technology, or even at another educational organisation altogether.

You will choose one of the two specialisations: Performing Musician for the Stages (PMS) or Performing Musician in Applied Contexts (PMAC). PMS focuses on performing music on various stages. From pop concerts and opera, to chamber music and intimate solo performances. The PMAC specialisation examines the application of your musicianship in other contexts such as a teacher, entrepreneur, or producer. A combination of the two specialisations is also possible.
