Do you have students who could consider studying Music at University but aren't sure? Send them along to a free talk on why they should!

Date:    Monday 14 March 2016

Time:   4.30 - 4.50pm

Venue:   Mitre Court, Unit 8, Cutler Heights Lane, Bradford BD4 9JY.

Arranged by Bradford Council's Music & Arts Service, composer and violinist Dr Martin Suckling, from York University Music Department will talk around:

Music: why bother?

Recent publicity around 'facilitating subjects' alongside an emphasis on STEM provision and post-degree job prospects have created a narrative that music is a risky choice for further study at university.  This talk aims to dispel some commonplace myths and demonstrate that music is not only an intellectually stimulating, challenging, and enriching subject in its own right but also foremost amongst the Humanities for developing transferable and business skills that make it a highly sought-after, enabling degree.

We hope that this will help students to make a more informed choice about their future when the time comes.

If you have any students that would like to come along, please sign them up by calling 01274 434970 or by emailing
