Concentrations

Declare a concentration by completing six full credits in designated courses. The concentration options are:

  • Music Education
  • Music Therapy Foundations
  • Performance (BMus only)

Alternatively, you don’t have to declare a concentration at all, and can graduate with our popular and long-established comprehensive BMus or Honours BA degrees. This is a great choice for people who have a wide variety of musical interests and who wish to cast a wide net of musical experience.
