Breadth studies for non-BMus students
The Melbourne curriculum aims to produce graduates who are trained in a particular discipline (depth) as well as knowledgeable across disciplines (breadth). The Breadth component of the Melbourne degrees means all students can include music in their Melbourne experience.
In studying music, you acquire a range of skills, knowledge and experiences that will complement your studies and enhance your future career. The Handbook contains more information about Breadth subjects.
Music Breadth Subjects
The Conservatorium of Music offers a wide variety of Breadth subjects, catering for all levels of musical background, from the complete beginner to the experienced musician. Subjects are available across a wide range of musical disciplines such as ensemble performance, introductory music studies, music language and the history and social context of music.
While one-to-one tuition in Music Performance or Composition is not available through breadth studies, performance opportunities do exist through ensemble subject options. You can choose single subjects at each year level or follow a recommended sequence throughout your course. Your current level of musical background will determine which music subjects are most appropriate for you.
