Student playing music

Studying music encourages students be become creative and adaptive thinkers and problem solvers; making informed decisions and developing their abilities to analyse and critically evaluate.  A deeper level of knowledge , understanding and active participation in music engenders students to maintain a lifelong engagement with music as an art form and as a means of creative, artistic and emotional expression.

The Music course is based around three broad areas:

  • Composition, the creation of music
  • Musicology, the study of music in social, historical and cultural contexts
  • Performance, the interpretation of music through playing, singing and conducting

Underpinning these three areas is knowledge and understanding of music elements and concepts and the skills to interpret and apply these within a range of music activities.
