Laurier’s Faculty of Music is built around a world-class faculty and a supportive learning environment. As you live, work and play on Canada’s best music campus, you’ll be inspired to dream big, and join the ranks of our successful alumni who enjoy diverse and innovative careers in the music industry.
Our BMus program offers concentrations in music education, contemporary music (composition and improvisation), music history, music theory, performance and comprehensive. Instruction is available in winds, brass, percussion, piano, organ, voice, strings, classical guitar and historical instruments. As a first-year student, you’ll receive a minimum of 1 hour of private instruction every week and participate in weekly masterclasses. You’ll also work with professional coach accompanists, who will assist you with the preparation and performance of solo repertoire.
We admit about 100 students every year and limit our overall enrolment to 350, which means we are large enough to have a full wind and symphony orchestra, 3 choirs, an outstanding opera program and contemporary music ensembles, but small enough to have most of our classes between 25 and 35 students. You’ll participate in at least one ensemble each year, and explore the many performance opportunities both on campus and in the vibrant music community of Kitchener-Waterloo.
