Welcome to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music

Welcome to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music

 
Music is at the centre of all people’s lives in the 21st century. Our playlists enable us to
access music from cultures and styles from all over the world. Musicians are an amazing
group of people because we are the ones who are able to create, re-create, invent, and
interpret music that is of our generation, our international culture, and from times past. Our
exploration of music through time connects us to previous generations and projects into
the future. It is an exciting time to learn to be a musician as new technology enables us to
connect to listeners in so many different ways. A degree in music will set you up to be
someone who can make a difference to others’ lives through your skills and humanity. Very
few people can really make music at an expert level. At the Sydney Conservatorium you
will have the opportunity to contribute to this vibrant expression of living and develop the
expertise to sustain a lifetime of musical work.

The Sydney Conservatorium of Music is Australia's premier tertiary music institution. In


addition to its significance in the Australian musical landscape, the Sydney Conservatorium
is increasingly influential in the Asia Pacific. Ideally situated at the centre of Sydney's Central
Business District and arts precinct and just minutes from the Sydney Opera House, the
Con offers students a comprehensive musical education, including the knowledge and skills
necessary for thriving in all aspects of music in the 21st century. Our brilliant, dedicated
faculty and gifted student body share a passion for music and the arts, a love of learning,
and a unique kinship that can last a lifetime.

Our exceptional undergraduate and graduate degree programs focus on performance,


composition, music education, conducting and musicology. Mentored by leaders in each
field, our students can focus on one area of expertise or pursue a combination of specialties to satisfy their creative energy. As a student of the
University of Sydney, you will be engaged with scholars who will challenge you. They will inspire you. They will urge you to uncover, reach for,
and achieve goals you did not know were possible. Most of all, the skills you develop and the experience gathered at the Con will forever be the
foundation of your excellence as a musician, composer, and/or teacher. It will help define your career. It will shape you as a person. And you will
continue drawing on it throughout your lifetime.

I invite you to share in our extraordinary and dynamic musical world. I invite you to become one of our graduates – one of the many soloists,
orchestral musicians, composers, academics and educators, critics, writers, and arts administrators who are integral to shaping the world through
music.

Undergraduate degree information

Bachelor of Music
The Bachelor of Music is a degree for musically and academically talented students aspiring to a professional career in music performance,
composition, or music education. It is taken over four years or eight semesters of full-time study or can be taken on a part-time basis (domestic
students only).

Bachelor of Music (Honours)


This is an embedded honours degree where students in their 4th year (semesters 7 and 8), except for the Bachelor of Music (Music Education),
which is undertaken in 3rd year (semesters 5-8), complete alternate honours units of study. Candidates wishing to undertake honours must apply
in writing to the Student Administration Office in the semester before honours study is to commence. Details on admission requirements for
honours are set out in the Faculty Resolutions and on the faculty website.

Bachelor of Music Studies


The Bachelor of Music Studies is a degree for students seeking a broad musical education. Its structure facilitates creative interdisciplinary links
within musical disciplines and other subject areas in the University of Sydney. The course develops broadly educated musicians who are able
to apply their knowledge, skills and attitudes creatively and flexibly in a variety of music and music-related professions. It is taken over three
years or six semesters of full-time study and may be taken on a part-time basis (domestic students only).

Bachelor of Music Studies (Honours)


This stand-alone honours year is open to students who have completed either the Bachelor of Music Studies degree at the Sydney Conservatorium
of Music or any other approved three-year degree at another institution. Entry is by interview and/or audition. Students must also submit an
honours proposal. The degree is taken over two semesters of full-time study.

Bachelor of Music Studies/Bachelor of Arts


The aim of the combined Bachelor of Music Studies/Bachelor of Arts is to allow students to acquire musical skills in performance, composition
or musicology, together with expertise in an arts discipline within a broad humanities context. The course caters for a wide variety of music and
music-related careers including arts administration, journalism, music teaching, arts policy, performance and composition (depending on appropriate
majors). It is taken over five years or 10 semesters of full-time study and may be taken on a part-time basis (domestic students only).

Bachelor of Music (Music Education)

Bachelor of Music (Music Education)

The Bachelor of Music (Music Education) degree is intended primarily as a professional training course for students wishing to become music
teachers in a school environment. The music education degree course meets requirements of professional bodies responsible for the accreditation
of school music teachers.

In New South Wales the major employer of school music teachers is the NSW Department of Education and Communities (DEC), which stipulates
specific musical and pedagogical skills and knowledge for a teacher to be certified as employable in departmental schools and other systems
such as non government and Catholic systemic schools.

In addition to music teaching methods, music history and analysis, performance and compositional skills and knowledge, students must have
attained information and communication technology competencies and have developed an understanding of children with special educational
needs.

A significant component (80-86 days) of the course must include practical teaching experience in schools. Graduating teachers also need to
meet the Teaching Standards of the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) under the jurisdiction of the New South
Wales Institute of Teachers, a professional body responsible for accreditation of all NSW teachers working in schools. Graduating teachers need
to demonstrate knowledge of subject content, pedagogy (including learning, teaching and evaluation strategies), NSW curriculum requirements
and the needs of socially, culturally, ethnically, physically and intellectually diverse groups of students in schools.

In order to satisfy these requirements, the Music Education degree has a large core of mandated music education units of study. The major focus
is on developing teaching skills through studies in education, music education, ensemble pedagogy and music technology.

Students undertake extended Professional Experience sessions in schools supported by both school teachers and experienced music education
lecturers from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Music Education specialists also develop practical, compositional, or research skills by
taking a minimum of four semesters of Principal Study in an instrument, voice, composition or musicology. Students also take part in large
ensembles (eg, Choir, Wind Symphony, Early Music Ensemble) and other performance units. All students take core studies in aural perception
and harmony (or jazz music skills for jazz students), studies in analysis, history and culture, and music technology.

Principal study is available in the following areas:


• Brass: Horn, trombone, trumpet, tuba
• Composition
• Historical Performance: baroque flute, harpsichord, lute, recorder, viola da gamba, baroque trumpet
• Jazz: bass, drums, electric guitar, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, vocal
• Musicology stream
• Organ
• Percussion
• Piano
• Strings: cello, double bass, guitar, harp, viola, violin
• Vocal Studies: classical
• Woodwind: bassoon, clarinet, flute, oboe, saxophone

Core requirements for graduation with a Bachelor of Music (Music Education)


Students must successfully complete 192 credit points and reach the minimum levels of achievement in each area as outlined in the degree
resolutions.

Typical enrolment patterns


Students should follow the typical enrolment patterns appropriate to their specialisation. Students are required to ensure the award course is to
be completed within four years full-time or equivalent.

Bachelor of Music Studies

Bachelor of Music Studies

The Bachelor of Music Studies is a degree for students seeking a broad musical education and its structure facilitates creative interdisciplinary
links within music disciplines and between music and other subject areas in the University of Sydney.

The course develops broadly educated musicians who are able to apply their knowledge, skills and attitudes creatively and flexibly in a variety
of music and music-related professions.

The goals of the Bachelor of Music Studies are:

• to develop general musical abilities in the areas of performance, musicology, composition and music education
• to develop students' ability to see themselves, their musical art and their educational activities in a wide cultural perspective, and
• to develop the generic attributes of graduates of the University of Sydney.

Course structure
The degree is structured to allow students flexibility in their choice of units so they may pursue their own combinations of musical and non-musical
disciplines, and students may choose units of study taught at another faculty of the University of Sydney, up to a maximum of 36 credit points.

All students take a Principal Study in an instrument, voice, contemporary music practice, composition or musicology, core units in music skills,
music pedagogy and music history and other units of their own choice.

Principal study is available in the following areas:


• Brass: Horn, trombone, trumpet, tuba
• Composition: instrumental/vocal and electroacoustic
• Contemporary Music Practice
• Historical Performance: baroque flute, harpsichord, lute, recorder, viola da gamba, baroque trumpet
• Musicology stream (General Stream)
• Organ
• Percussion
• Piano
• Strings: cello, double bass, guitar, harp, viola, violin
• Voice: classical or jazz
• Woodwind: bassoon, clarinet, flute, oboe, saxophone.

Core requirements
Students must successfully complete 144 credit points and reach the minimum levels of achievement in each core area of their specialisation as
outlined in the degree resolutions.

Typical enrolment patterns


Students should follow the typical enrolment pattern appropriate to their specialisation. Students are required to ensure the award course is
