The broad range of skills developed through the BCA Music will allow you to respond innovatively and flexibly to the rapidly changing world of contemporary music. The music major combines teaching in composition and performance with developments in electronic media, building students’ skills and expertise across three inter-related areas: music studio, audio production and critical studies in music.

You will not only develop creative, conceptual and practical skills, but specialised technical skills, and a clear grasp of how your own practice relates to the wider music community. Many careers are increasingly reliant on digital literacy and proficiency, which in combination with the creative, conceptual and academic skills acquired within the BCA Music, will lend you a competitive edge in the creative industries.
