All incoming students are automatically registered in the Comprehensive concentration.

This program is designed to give you a well-rounded musical education with the freedom to choose electives in a variety of subjects, both in music and outside of music.

As a comprehensive music student, you’ll study your instrument or voice for all 4 years, with weekly 1-hour lessons each year, and participate in at least 1 instrumental or vocal ensemble each year. You will also complete 4 courses in music history and theory, and 2 courses in post-tonal analysis.

In addition to the core courses required for all B.Mus. students, you will choose electives to create a program tailored to your specific musical interests. You can take as many as 6 credits (12 one-term courses) in subjects outside music, which means you can complete a minor or option in the faculties of Arts, Science or Business.
