Why study the Bachelor of Music?

In the first two years of the program, all students take practical study in their chosen instrument or the human voice, as well as courses in music history, techniques and aural training, plus electives from popular music or other courses. Students then choose from a range of majors and minors in various fields of music to complete their studies.
