Why study with us? OU Music staff have immense expertise in creating distance learning materials.

Modules provide a range of learning materials, including textbooks, printed musical scores, CDs, DVDs and online resources, to support a learning experience that is fresh and exciting. You have the flexibility of studying at home, but there are also opportunities to meet fellow students and tutors at face-to-face sessions. All of our modules are taught by enthusiastic and committed Associate Lecturers with experience of supporting part-time students.
