Music (MUSC)

School of Fine Art and Music, College of Arts.

The School offers courses in music history, theory, ethnomusicology, and performance. Many courses are open to all students, while others require a knowledge of the rudiments of musical notation or other prerequisites. Students are urged to plan their program in consultation with a Music advisor. Music programs allow considerable flexibility for students to elect one or more areas of interest, such as individual study on an instrument, performing in vocal or instrumental ensembles, specialized historical or theoretical study, directed readings, or an independent project. Physics of Music (MUSC*1090, ) is strongly recommended for all Music students and will count as one of the courses for the B.A. math/science requirement.

Courses in Music are offered in several of the semesters abroad, especially London. Credit for programs of study successfully completed may be applied towards the University of Guelph degree requirements.

Applied Music

MUSC*1500 is available only by audition. MUSC*1500 is restricted to students in Semesters 1-4. Students who wish to continue to the 2000 level in Applied Music must be enrolled in a Music program: general program; area of concentration; honours program, major or minor.

Applied Music courses are designed to be taken during successive Fall and Winter terms. If this sequence is interrupted for a semester or more, students will be required to reaudition before registering to continue in Applied Music. Students must achieve a minimum grade 70% in Applied Music courses in order to proceed to the next level.
