Music (Bachelor of Music)

Bachelor of Music (BMus)

Why choose Music (Bachelor of Music)?


Music scholars ask questions such as: How do music theory and performance interact? What role does music play in our society? How can my performances influence or comment on the world?

The Bachelor of Music (BMus) degree is designed for students wishing to enter a professional career in music, either as performers, teachers, composers, theorists, historians or critics. The BMus provides the opportunity for students to major in Performance, Composition, or Integrated Studies. In addition, there’s a major in Music Education that is available in the context of a concurrent BMus/Bachelor of Education degree. All degrees combine extensive instruction in music history and theory, composition, and pedagogy with performance and community involvement. You’ll graduate with creative thinking skills, research and analytical capabilities, written and verbal communication skills, as well as practical and theoretical musical training.

Career opportunities

As a Bachelor of Music graduate, you'll be prepared for career opportunities in areas such as performance, education, arts management, and audio production and design. Your degree can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine or veterinary medicine.

Chair of the Music Performance area, Edmond also conducts the University of Calgary Orchestra, is a violin instructor and first violinist of the UCalgary String Quartet. “Because of the size of our program, students have an unusually great number of opportunities to perform and to experience a wide range of musical styles. Guest master classes, associations with the renowned ProMusica Chamber Music series, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Mount Royal Conservatory, and access to the acoustically acclaimed Rozsa Centre create motivating and inspiring learning opportunities.
