The Bachelor of Music enables students to enter a professional career in music, to teach music privately and to achieve proficiency in a performance area such as composition, instrumental or voice. With study in theory, music literature, music history, piano and applied instruction, students learn the structure and expression of music and the historical context of musical genres. Through applied study, students develop advanced skills and can apply this knowledge through singing, performing on a musical instrument or composing a musical work and they can apply advanced critical thinking skills when hearing musical sounds.
