Bachelor of Music

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bachelor of Music is an academic degree awarded by a college, university, or conservatory upon completion of a program of study in music. In the United States, it is a professional degree, and the majority of work consists of prescribed music courses and study in applied music, usually requiring proficiency in an instrument, voice, or conducting. In Canada, the B.M. is often considered an undergraduate degree. Programs typically last from three to four and a half years.

The degree may be awarded for performance, music education, composition, music theory, musicology / music history (musicology degrees may be a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) rather than a B.M.) music technology, music therapy, sacred music, music business/music industry, entertainment, music production or jazz studies. In the 2010s, some universities have begun offering degrees in Music Composition with Technology, which include traditional theory and musicology courses and sound recording and composition courses using digital technologies.

In the United Kingdom, the Bachelor of Music is generally a first degree lasting three years (or four years in Scotland) and consisting of a wide range of areas of study (normally including performance, composition, music theory, musicology/music history), but at the University of Oxford[1] and University of Cambridge[2] it is a one-year postgraduate degree which can only be taken if a student is a graduate in music with honors at those universities; the undergraduate course is in the Faculty of Arts and leads to the Bachelor of Arts (and subsequently the Master of Arts (Oxbridge)).

The Bachelor of Music is an internationally recognised degree in music It's the the sort of degree you would take if you're really serious about music, you want to be a musician or want to do something in music related industries. Hopefully I won't finish my studies for a long time, I'm just loving it, I'm getting in to practice every day with and playing with different groups The real quality of the degree is that is solid in all of the areas, its solid in performance, its solid in composition, we have the leading academics in those areas in the county. We at the MSO are primarily, when being employed, we are looking at first and foremost skills, technically on the instrument but much more interestingly to us is the more well rounded skills, what they have to offer not just as a human being but their whole approach to music on a historical, informed level. The lecturers were great, we had Elizabeth Mitchell she was really inspiring and she would always point out relevant things within the academic realm that relates to us as performers. So we have been really lucky, we get people quite often from overseas to give us master classes and perform. We have student who are taught by musicians from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, we supply musicians to the Victoria Opera and a number of others operas and productions, We provide singers as well. So our students have many opportunities in community ensembles and professional organisations. It's been really fantastic, I've had heaps of exposure to the industry. I was lucky when I was in first year, there was some guys in their final year at Uni and they handballed some stuff my way. and before I knew it, I was playing for a Mozart gig. And then getting asked to play with another group. Over the years we've had much contact and communication with the Melbourne University and indeed, a fairly high percentage of our workforce has been taken from Melbourne University, We also have close connections, many of our members teach and lecture there as well. Being at Melbourne University now that'll give me a definite edge for the future. Especially as I'm wanting to continue my studies overseas and they see the undergraduate degree at Melbourne as a big tick. Yeah. Its really happening at Melbourne at the moment. The community is really great, and you get to do lots of hands on stuff. I get to play in heaps of Orchestras and ensembles through the University and you also get to do a breadth subject which isn't actually scary, it gives you a chance to do what you want to do like a language which is always good.


After a degree holder's name, as on a business card or a CV, the degree is abbreviated in various ways, including: B.M., BM, B.Mus, BMus, Mus.B, or Mus.Bac. Some recipients add an abbreviation for the name of the institution which granted the degree as well, e.g., "Susan Bhattara, B.Mus. (Oxon)"; Oxon being the Latin abbreviation for Oxford University.

Post-graduation options

Graduates may apply for jobs in performance, teaching, or arts administration. As well, graduates can apply for jobs which require a bachelor's degree in every subject, such as some entry-level jobs in banking, insurance, sales, and administration. Graduates with an interest in teaching in the school system may go on to complete a teaching degree or diploma. Graduates who have achieved a high standard on their instrument, voice, or another specialization such as composition or conducting may be eligible to apply for a Master of Music (M.M.) if their grades are high enough (a B+ or A- average is typically required). B.M. graduates can also apply to a range of graduate programs outside of music, such as library science, business administration or public administration; a B+ or A- average is typically required. Some programs may require B.M. graduates to complete preparatory or make-up courses in the field of the master's. As well, some programs require the GRE or GMAT (standardized tests). B.M. graduates in some fields, such as composition, music theory, or musicology may be able to apply directly to Ph.D programs if they have a high average and strong recommendation letters.
