Concordia University of Edmonton’s School of Music covers topics such as music theory, composition, conducting, history, literature, choral, vocal and keyboard music, and voice and music individual instruction. While students are required to take courses across an array of music studies, the foundation will focus on classical music. In our 4-year program, students take applied music courses, including private study and participation in an ensemble. Options for private study include voice, piano, organ, violin, cello, French horn, flute, trumpet, bassoon, hand bells, and the saxophone. Music ensembles include concert choir, winds, handbells, and chamber music.
Degree options include a 3-year concentration or 4-year major. Students who take a musical path are prepared for a variety of occupations. Our graduates have gone on to teach privately or work in music-related fields, including music therapy, recording, or arts administration. Many graduates also continue on to complete Concordia University of Edmonton’s Education After Degree program.
