Students admitted to the Music – Advanced Performance program at University of British Columbia may follow one of four streams: General Studies, Advanced Performance, Scholarship, or Composition. Every stream includes four years of private lessons in an instrument or voice, along with ensemble performance (4 years), music scholarship (3 years), and non-music electives (4 years).
The distribution of required and elective courses, in Music and in other subjects, is different for each stream. If you can meet the highest standards of performing ability, you may select a Major in Advanced Performance. You can specialize in a standard orchestral instrument, opera, voice, piano, guitar, harpsichord, or organ.
A UBC education will introduce you to people and ideas from around the world, open doors to new opportunities, and take you places you never imagined. You’ll graduate not only with expertise in your chosen field, but with the skills you need to continue growing, learning, and evolving with your career over time.
