About

Every student in the Music program of University of Guelph will receive personal 1:1 instruction by distinguished musicians, participate in masterclasses lead by faculty or influential artists, and receive credits each year for instrumental or choral ensembles.

Overview

You will choose between one of two streams within our program:

  • Research-Creation: creative industries, music technology, and composition
  • Performing Professional: performance, musicianship, and theory
  • You will have access to our newly renovated, $23 million Arts Research Centre (ARC), which will be a community hub for music, performance, and theatre. These spaces include:

    • 140-seat recital hall
    • Practice and rehearsal rooms
    • Recording and digital music studio

    We understand that the current job market requires an ability to write well, to have a wide awareness of trends across the globe, a deep awareness of cultural factors, marketing skills, and an ability to work with technology. Our program provides you the opportunity to develop these skills, while offering options to concentrate on a range of music skills.

    What Can You Do with a Degree in Music?

    Music studies graduates are the bridge of reimagining and rethinking the past to create the sounds, scores, technologies and more of the future. Music reflects the continuous changes technology and society go through; our graduates learn the skills and theory, from music production, to research analysis and music history that informs the soundscapes and environments around us.

    • Music marketing/promotion
    • Music teacher
    • Music therapist
    • Sound/recording engineer

    Why Music Studies?

    The Power of Music

    Our Music program is like none-other because we understand the power that music can have beyond traditional performance. Music can create community, fill cultural spaces, surpass language and difference and help us to find our identity. You've felt it too, right?

    Create Change Through Music

    In this program, you will learn the importance of cultural and inclusive practices across genres and traditions, such as jazz, pop, rock, turntablism, classical, choral, global music, and more. You will explore topics that will help you to inform and lead positive social change, such as:

    • Music and power
    • Music and identity
    • Music and the environment
    • Music and appropriation vs. appreciation,
    • Music and psychology, to

    Why We Prefer BA vs. BMus

    Our program is designed as a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Music, rather than a Bachelor of Music to allow students to combine their passion in Music more easily with major or minor programs in many other disciplines.

    Courses include:

    • Theory and Musicianship 
    • Music and Research I: Exploring Society's Sounds
    • Music and Creative Practice 
    • Instrumental Ensembles I or Choral Ensembles
