There has never been a culture without music — it nourishes our hearts and minds and stirs our souls. If your goal is to immerse yourself in the making of music, Concordia’s Major in Music program offers you the flexibility to control your own future — whether you want to compose, write songs, perform, manage artists, or become a music therapist.

Taking classes and working in our studios and rehearsal spaces will give you the skills, knowledge, discipline and experience you will need. After your first year you may transfer into the Specialization in Music Performance or Composition programs, or continue in the Major for the most flexibility. You will have the opportunity to:
  • Study composition, songwriting, arranging and orchestration
  • Perform in the University or Chamber Choir, Contemporary Music Ensembles, or Transdisciplinary Creation and Performance projects
  • Give a public presentation of your own creative “capstone” project in your final year

After graduation you’ll have the knowledge, skill and passion to succeed as a musician or pursue graduate studies.
