Summary

Expand your musical technique and understanding within your choice of classical or jazz performance, composition, popular music or musicology at New Zealand’s largest tertiary music school.

In the BMus you’ll learn to both preserve the past and nurture progress as you focus on your chosen discipline and prepare to enter a changing music industry. You’ll learn from some of the finest instrument teachers in the country, as well as recognised music historians and composers. Our partnerships with industry organisations will give you contact with leading local and international musicians.

Through your involvement in our many small and large ensembles, tutorials and studio classes, you’ll develop strong collaborative skills and grow your confidence.

You can study music alongside another discipline as part of a conjoint degree in Arts, Commerce, Engineering, Law or Science.

Programme structure

While each major differs slightly, in your first year you will develop core skills in your discipline, such as musicianship, music analysis, theory, music industry studies and composition. General Education courses will give you the chance to supplement your studies with a topic of your choice.

In second year and beyond, you continue to develop within your specialisation and you can explore areas of personal interest in complementary fields such as sonic arts, music education, production, and history.

More information regarding the programme structure can be found on the specialisation pages:

  • Creative Practice: Classical

Where could this programme take you?
