In Community Music, you will learn and experience the benefits of introducing music into different settings within a range of community contexts. You will be introduced to a music making approach that stresses active collaboration through creative songwriting, improvisation and group performance.
Auditions for Community Music allow you to demonstrate your personal musical strengths. Pieces can be performed on any instrument(s) (including voice) in any genre or musical style
Our instructors will pass on the leadership and musicianship skills for you to facilitate community music. Community Music can lead to a range of rewarding careers within the music industry and beyond.
As a first-year student, you’ll take year-long courses in voice and drumming, be part of the community music ensemble, take history and improvisational skills courses as well as four electives outside of the Faculty of Music.
Flexible in course requirements, you have enough room to pursue a minor or double degree to combine your love of music with other subjects outside the Faculty of Music. Recording courses are available through Conestoga College, giving you hands-on experience with current recording technology.
With guidance from a Laurier instructor, in fourth year, you will have the freedom to create a capstone project, allowing you to identify your main strengths or interests and put them to action in any form. Capstone projects are not limited and could be structured as an event, research-project, new business, performance or more. If teaching is your passion, upon graduation you will be eligible to apply for Bachelor of Education programs. Pathways to the Bachelor of Music Therapy are available.
