Programs

Performance

The performance programs at McGill provide students with private lessons and performing opportunities in university ensembles, in addition to studies in the history and theory of music. The degree of Bachelor of Music in Performance can be obtained for Keyboard Instruments, Guitar, Harp, Strings, Voice, Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion, Church Music, Early Music, and Jazz. Honours programs are offered for all instruments (except Jazz), Voice, and Early Music.


The diploma of Licentiate in Music is a three-year program for instrumentalists and singers who want to focus on their practical skills, and limit their theoretical and historical studies. The Artist Diploma program is for gifted performers who show promise for a professional career as a performer. The Orchestral Training Program is for students studying the orchestral instruments. The McGill Symphony Orchestra, which is conducted by Alexis Hauser, is the most senior orchestra for the university. Other ensembles include the McGill Contemporary Music Ensemble and the Wind Symphony, which are led by Denys Bouliane and Alain Cazes.


The String Area is headed by Jonathan Crow (violin). McGill's string professors include Montreal Symphony Orchestra principal players such as violinist Richard Roberts (concertmaster, MSO); cellist Brian Manker (principal, MSO); bassist Brian Robinson (assistant principal, MSO); and harpist Jennifer Swartz (principal, MSO).

Music Research

McGill's Music Research Department offers B.Mus. programs in Composition, Theory, History, Music Education, Sound Recording, and Music Technology. For students who want a broader liberal arts education, a B.A. with a Major in Music is also available. The Schulich School of Music believes that students should get a "substantial proportion of their instruction from full-time professorial staff rather than from teaching assistants." The Music Research Department organizes public lectures every year and has sponsored such conventions for major musical societies.
