With a classical music orientation, we offer programs designed for the specific needs and interests of students, whether it is performance, composition, digital audio arts or music education. 

Our music programs are based on core courses that provide a thorough education in all aspects of music, with a foundation built on classical theory, history and musicianship skills for the first two years.  Third and fourth year students have access to a broad palate of courses to suit their academic and professional aspirations.

At the University of Lethbridge, you have the opportunity to work closely with an internationally-recognized faculty of performers, composers, researchers and scholars who are dedicated to your success.
