THE RESONANCE ETHOS
Music is transformational.
It can bring joy, love, health and meaning to the lives of millions of people, young or old.
Whoever or wherever you are, music connects friends and strangers around the globe. Few other art forms can evoke so much emotion and bring people together.
As a great musician, composer, educator or creative practitioner, free in spirit to explore new ideas with confidence and determination, you will have the power to unlock this potential.
Our purpose is to provide a life-changing experience, pursuing excellence and helping you become that champion.
All students and staff sign up to our core values, promising to be:
- committed to the development of the whole person
- mindful of the needs and rights of others
- fair, honest and transparent in how decisions are made
- kind and honourable to each other
- responsible and accountable to each other
- supportive and encouraging at all times
- distinctive and unique in striving to be the best
- determined to achieve the highest standards
- aspirational in providing students a life-changing experience
- open-minded and reflective
Everything we do at Resonance is governed by the principles of equal opportunity. No person is disadvantaged or treated less favourably by reason of religious belief, political opinion, gender, marital status, race, colour, ethnic origin, sexual orientation or disability.
This applies to recruitment and admissions, to the curriculum, teaching and learning, staff development and training; in short, to every aspect of our work together.
Who cares, wins.
Studying for a degree is a big deal. It’s a major change in anyone’s life, especially if you’re leaving home and moving to a new area. The Resonance team understands this, and we’re committed to helping and nurturing our students throughout their time here.
Supporting students’ emotional health isn’t an add-on for us. It’s central to our philosophy and runs like a thread through the curriculum, with bespoke training to help you understand and emotionally support yourself and others. We employ highly skilled emotional care staff and draw upon 50 years of learning into all aspects of psycho-emotional understanding and development.
As far as we are aware, no other higher education provider provides this level of care. Just one more reason why Resonance isn’t your ‘usual’ university.
Not for profit
Resonance is a not-for profit organisation. All our income from fees and commercial activities is invested in teaching and learning, and in providing the best possible experience for our students.
That’s it. There are no shareholders or venture capitalists behind the scenes syphoning off profits and reducing the resources we have available to spend on our students and facilities.
