Master of Music

Master of Music

Building on our reputation for excellent undergraduate education in performance, composition, and digital audio arts, the Master of Music offers students the opportunity to join a dynamic community of experienced and active professional musicians and scholars. The MMus program combines advanced Studio or Digital Audio Arts instruction with a strong theoretical and practical foundation in areas that include:

  • Audio engineering
  • Composition (acoustic/electro-acoustic)
  • Electronic instrument interfaces
  • Interactive computer music
  • Percussion
  • Piano (solo/collaborative)
  • Trumpet
  • Violin
  • Voice

It also involves master classes and lectures with visiting artists and numerous performance/recording opportunities on-campus and in the larger community of Lethbridge. Although grounded in classical music, students are encouraged to study broadly and synthesize their work into a personalized artistic expression. The MMus degree is a two-year, full-time program of applied and academic study. The University provides substantial financial support to all full-time graduate students. Additional scholarships are also available once entered into the program.

Located in the University of Lethbridge Centre for the Arts, the Music Department is supported by numerous practice facilities, a newly renovated recital hall with two Steinway D concert grand pianos and a Yamaha S6 handmade grand, Studio One (a world-class digital recording studio), a musical technology lab, and Audio Research Lab. A comprehensive university with solid undergraduate and growing graduate programs located a short drive from Calgary, the United States border, and the Rocky Mountains in the prosperous and culturally active city of Lethbridge, the U of L is committed to creativity, inquiry, and discovery. It values and supports research, scholarship, and creative work, and encourages students at all levels to become involved.
