London FSP


The Music Foreign Study Program provides an excellent opportunity for students to combine the hands-on study of music with an intensive, experiential exposure to musical performance while living in London. The program is open to instrumentalists, vocalists and composers, as well as to students whose focus is on music history, theory, or ethnomusicology.

Courses offered include Music 70: "Perspectives in Music Performance" (taught by the FSP director), which brings together the many diverse aspects of musical performance through attendance of more than thirty public performances; Music 71: "The History of Music in England," and Music 87: "Special Studies in Music Abroad," consisting of weekly individual lessons with UK professionals. Student musicians will reap the benefits of a term in London, the undisputed musical capital of Europe. The opportunity to attend concerts and rehearsals, meet performers and artists, and experience firsthand the vibrant musical traditions of London offers unique learning opportunities outside the classroom.

Participant selection will be based on each applicant's interest in music and in musical performance, as demonstrated by past study.  Enrollment is limited to 16.

The FSP is operated in partnership with IES. IES is one of the nation’s most reputable study abroad providers and is well-known for their continued dedication to health and safety and academic rigor.
