Music I is a direct-entry program for students wishing to enter a degree program in Music.
In addition to university entrance requirements, consideration for this program also requires an audition.
Music I is comprised of 33 units.
24 units are made up of required Level I Music courses (21 units of core courses plus 3 units of ensemble).
9 units are elective courses, and may be taken in the Humanities or a different faculty.
Admission to a particular ensemble is by audition, which takes place in the beginning of September. Announcements of dates and times will be available in The School of the Arts at the start of the year.
Students should balance their courses so they are registered in 15 units in the Fall Term, 15 units in the Winter Term, and their 3-unit ensemble course (1G*3A/B) over the year. This is normally equivalent to five courses each term, plus the ensemble spanning both terms.

Course Enrolment Guide For First Year Students
When do I start enrolling?
The timetable for the upcoming academic year will be available in Mosaic in the beginning of June, so you can start exploring our course offerings and planning your year! To enrol in courses, students are assigned individual appointment times. Your appointment time will appear in your student centre under, ‘Enrolment Dates’. Click on ‘detail’ to view your specific appointment date and time. This is your enrolment appointment for both the fall and winter terms. When your appointment time starts, you can begin enrolling and continue making registration changes until the last day to do so.
Where can I find course descriptions?
Information about a particular class can be viewed when searching for classes on Mosaic. Below is an example of course information:
The Class Detail shows important information, such as when and where the class meets, in what term it takes place, and a description of the course.
The Status indicates whether or not there are still seats available.
The Instruction Mode shows how the course will be delivered (e.g. In Person, Online).
The Enrolment Information shows any requisites that must be met in order to take the course. Some courses also require permission from the department or instructor to enrol. If a course indicates that it requires permission, contact the department or instructor administering the course for more information.
What are multi-term courses?
Multi-term courses will have an A/B attached to them (e.g. Music 1GC3 A/B).
Multi-term courses span both the fall and winter terms. Part A takes place in the fall, and Part B in the winter. Students register only in Part A, and the system will automatically enrol you in Part B.
How long do I have to make changes to my course selections?
The last day for making changes to your registration in each term is posted yearly under the Registrar’s Office Sessional Dates. It is important to familiarize yourself with these dates at the start of each term.
Students have until this deadline to add and drop courses in each term. Courses dropped by the last day to make registration changes are removed from your record and a refund for the tuition is given.
If you believe you have an outstanding refund, please contact the Student Accounts & Cashiers Office.
Students are fully responsible for any outcomes as a result of their registration changes.
Enrolling for the first time can be overwhelming, and we’re here to help if you get stuck! If you have any issues during the process, please contact the Humanities Academic Advising Office.
Music I is administered by The School of the Arts.
