Description: This route allows for the most flexible programming to accommodate individual backgrounds and interests; it can be as general or as specialized as you wish! You’ll have the opportunity to take courses in both theory and performance, including music history, world music, classical, and contemporary music. You can also earn credits by participating in one of our many performing ensembles, which include orchestras, concert choirs and bands, contemporary and improvisational ensembles, opera workshops, and world music ensembles. Students accepted into the Bachelor of Music program will automatically be registered into the General Route.

The Bachelor of Music (BMus) program is the most intensive of all our music programs; admission is dependent upon a successful performance audition as well as the completion of a music rudiments placement test. Through our program you will have access to award-winning teachers, global researchers, and renowned performers in a warm, close-knit academic community. Whatever your interest — singing, piano performance, computer music composition, or music history — you will have ample instructional resources to guarantee success.
