What does a Music degree involve?

The course develops through the three themes of Music specialist study, Music theory and ear training, and Music context study:

  • A. Music specialist study
    This sequence of units will provide you with specialist skills to undertake a final examination either through performance with your chief instrument or voice, or through a folio of compositions, creative music technology media or written work. Performance and other applied electives are also available.
  • B. Music theory and ear training
    This will integrate the development of aural skills with the theoretical understanding of music through listening, analysis, performance, notation and composition.
  • C. Music context studies
    These studies will expose you to the study of music and music making in various cultural, historical, social and professional settings through introductory units and a capstone experience.
  • D. Free elective study
    Electives will enable you to further develop your knowledge of music or Arts more broadly, or to select units from across the University (in which you are eligible to enrol).
    For students in a double degree course, these elective units are replaced by fulfilling part of the requirements of the other course.
