Master of Music

What does music mean? Who is it for? And what might be its future?

We're not looking for students who know the answers; we're looking for students who ask the questions.

Enrolling in a Master of Music gives you the opportunity to explore the concepts and contexts of music guided by world-class academic staff delivering lectures, tutorials, one-to-one tuition, ensembles, master classes, technical workshops and musical activities in the community.

The Master of Music offers two streams:

Program Structure

Music Performance

The Music Performance stream is available for a selected range of instruments depending on the availability of staff (contact the School regarding which instruments are currently available), must be undertaken in both solo and ensemble contexts, however solo recitals may include accompaniment and chamber music where appropriate and as approved.

Music Composition

The Music Composition stream further develops students’ skills, knowledge, creativity and experience in a contemporary context. Taught through studio practice, it leads to a series of works designed according to student needs. The student’s study will be complemented by an individual program which will require relevant written or other documentation as the object of assessment.
