As you come in at the main entrance, turn left for the Music Centre Office, Practice Rooms, Library and Studio, and turn right for the Hall.
A great musical life is one of the strengths of Aberystwyth and its university. The close-knit character of the place really makes things happen. Generations of students have discovered the special quality of music here. Aber is not only a great place to live and study; it's a very special place for music.
Individual lessons are available and there is space in the Music Centre for practice.
Music Scholarships are available to full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students who hold any kind of offer.
