During May and June 2020, @UniKent’s Centre for Music & Audio Technology (CMAT) will host a series of online talks focused on different aspects of music for the public and prospective students.

Each talk will be led by a different expert across the CMAT team, providing insights into unique topics around music production, psychology and performance. Whether virtual attendees want to develop their musicianship, enhance skills and knowledge or find out more about studying music at the University, there is a webinar to suit all interests.

Deputy Head of CMAT, Peter Hatton, said: ‘This is an extremely valuable, appropriately timely and innovative way to keep in touch with our applicants and the public. The format of a short talk, introducing the member of staff and their area of specialism, gives a focus to the session for all participants while offering a more relaxed atmosphere for applicants to ask the all important questions about being a student with us. There is a brilliant range of subjects covered demonstrating the breadth of what studying Music and Audio can entail.’
