The Bachelor of Music (BMus) is a four-year, full-time degree that offers intensive pre-professional training in one of four Streams: Music Creative Practice, Music Inquiry, Sonic Arts, and Music Pedagogy. The first 1.5 years are common to all Streams. All BMus candidates receive individual performance tuition (or composition tuition on approval) for the first two years of the program. Music Pedagogy candidates receive additional individual performance tuition in year three of the program and Music Creative Practice candidates receive additional individual performance tuition (or composition tuition) in years three and four of the program. Music Creative Practice students may specialise in performance or composition in a self-selected musical style or tradition, including Jazz or World Music on approval. Music Inquiry provides a highly academic focus on studies in Historical Musicology, Ethnomusicology, Music Analysis or the Psychology of Music. Sonic Arts develops technical and creative skills in Electro-Acoustic music and Sound Design and provides links with Media Studies at UNSW. Music Pedagogy provides a course of study in studio teaching with an emphasis on practical application and preparation for further study in music education. All Streams include extensive training in developing musicianship skills and ensemble performance, which is supported by a variety of large and small, Western and Non-Western Music ensembles.
