our music community

We have over twenty student-led, registered music groups here at the University of Exeter, catering for a vast range of talents, genres, preferences, and styles Some of our music societies are auditioned, whilst others aren’t, meaning there is truly something for everyone to get involved in!

Joining a society allows you to rehearse with your chosen society/societies and participate in society-specific social activities. You can check out our groups here.

In addition to this, we have a community of over 300 Music Members here at Exeter. Many of our members take part in a range of music performance opportunities available across the year.

music tuition

As part of purchasing a Music Membership, you will get access to our list of approved Music Tutors. Our instrumental tutors are experienced and come highly recommended, with many having taught at the University for a number of years.

If we do not currently have a tutor for your particular instrument, please get in touch and we can help you to find one.

Additionally, we offer a Music Tuition Scheme to support students financially so that all can receive musical tuition. Applications open in September of each academic year.

Music Tuition Scheme

The MTS is a grant for instrumental music tuition that any student can apply for, regardless of their ability level. If your application is successful, you could receive up to 100% funding for ten lessons. You don’t need a music membership to apply, however. If you’re a successful applicant, the scheme allows you access to a free music membership and access to our facilities.

To apply all you need to provide is a completed Music Tuition Scheme Application Form. You are not required to audition; therefore, funding is granted on the quality of your application alone!

The MTS is open for applications at the start of each academic year and the deadline for 2022-2023 applications is midday on Friday 7 October 2022. Please email completed application forms to by the deadline to be considered for the scheme.
