Important: Unfortunately, due to current COVID health restrictions we are unable to let members use the music room/piano rooms for the time being. We are currently working with the University to make sure that this isn't the case for very long. We really appreciate your patience and will let you know as soon as this changes. 

The University of Essex Music Society is a society for people who play instruments, sing, want to learn to play an instrument or just love music. We give our members free (!) use of drums, guitar amps, pianos, microphones and more in our practice room which is exclusive to MuSoc members. On top of that, we organise gigs to give our musicians opportunities to perform.

We host socials to help you form musical relationships and because, well, who doesn't love a social with like-minded people? Sometimes these socials focus around gigs or open mic nights where we support each other. We can also help with any music-related pursuit you can imagine, from lessons to radio performances to studio recording. We're currently working on a number of different projects and opportunities throughout the year so check back regularly or join us on Facebook.

We promote an enjoyable, sociable, loud and unique opportunity for people to engage musically with others. Here are our social media links:

Society aims

The main aim of the Music society is to provide opportunities for musicians at the University of Essex. From providing rehearsal spaces for bands, to organising performances on campus, the Music Society will work hard to ensure that music and talent at the university if recognised. Through a greater number of socials and meetings, the society aims to become closer and work with musicians on campus to target new ways of gaining recognition and support for live music and musicians on campus.


Society objectives

Our objectives are to have at least 1 social a fortnight and regular peformances by members in the University Squares and at Open Mic events both on and off campus. We would also like to expand our equipment so that we can target musicians from a greater range of genres. With greater membership and development of the society we hope to push for music to have a greater role in bringing atmosphere and energy to the University throughout the coming year.
