MUSIC I

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.
