Ian Buckle maintains a varied performing career working as soloist, accompanist, chamber musician and orchestral pianist. He enjoys especially strong relationships with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and the John Wilson Orchestra, having appeared with both as soloist on numerous occasions; and has also played concertos with the Royal Philharmonic, Opera North, Sinfonia Viva and the Manchester Concert Orchestra. Committed to contemporary music, he has been the pianist in Ensemble 10/10 since the group's inception, premiering many new works in concerts nationwide including at Wigmore Hall and on BBC Radio 3; and his piano duo with Richard Casey specialises in performing music from the last and current centuries. Ian has had works written for him by Benjamin Hackbarth, Timothy Jackson, Martin Iddon and Michael Spencer. He frequently collaborates with former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion in giving recitals of piano music and poetry, recent programmes including Shropshire and Other Lads, a celebration of A. E. Housman; Anthem for Doomed Youth, a commemoration of World War One; and Philip Larkin's England. He is a member of both the piano-and-wind ensemble Zephyr and the Elysnan Horn Trio, formed when the group were students at the Royal Northern College of Music; and is the director and pianist of Pixels Ensemble. Ian teaches at the Universities of Leeds and Liverpool and is an examiner with ABRSM. Current CD releases include transcriptions for cello and piano with Jonathan Aasgaard, a recital of new works for clarinet and piano with former BBC Young Musician winner Mark Simpson, violin and piano music by Edward German with Andrew Long, and a disc of English music with clarinettist Nicholas Cox.

The School of Music at the University of Leeds is one of the largest and most diverse academic music departments in the country. Leeds is a research-intensive Russell Group University and it aims to develop exceptional graduates who will make a major impact upon global society. In Music we have an outstanding reputation for research, and the School brings together internationally recognised scholars, performers, and composers. The School has four undergraduate programmes, six taught masters programmes and a dynamic academic community which includes one of the largest postgraduate research contingents in the country, as well as welcoming many visiting performers, composers, and musicologists (for instance through our substantial concert and research seminar series). Our musical interests are outstandingly diverse: staff members work in critical and historical musicology, popular music, music psychology, composition, performance, areas of ethnomusicology, and music technology, focussing on music from the sixteenth century to the present day, from a global perspective. As a student at Leeds you can expect to study Monteverdi to Lady Gaga, gamelan to Patti Smith.

Our research informs our teaching at all levels: we work from the firm conviction that student experience is enhanced by intense exposure to the most current ideas and innovation in musical scholarship and practice. Our provision has been consistently praised both for its quality and for its range. We are committed to traditional face-to-face teaching in lectures, seminars, and tutorials, supported by first-class resources and the latest learning technologies. Students have regular one-to-one contact with staff members through our personal tutoring scheme and, most significantly for many of our graduates, through the final-year dissertation. This major piece of work encourages students to engage with active research in the discipline, with individual projects and concerns pursued with the close support of expert academic staff.

The School has a very active performance life, including but not limited to the free lunchtime concert series. The spectacular Clothworkers' Centenary Concert Hall is just one of many venues where leading international artists from many genres and styles perform. The School and University collaborate with a range of prestigious arts organisations: we host BBC Radio 3 concerts and the Leeds International Pianoforte Competition as well as enjoying a close partnership with Opera North.

The School is located near the heart of the campus, very close to the University's three major academic libraries and only a few minutes' walk from the city libraries, galleries and concert venues. There are many student residences on or close to campus and Leeds University Union is nearby, in the centre of the campus.
