The Bachelor of Music is a three-year, full-time, music qualification that brings students to an advanced level of knowledge and skills in major areas of musical understanding and performance. The New Zealand Diploma in Music (Level 5) is a pre-requisite for this course and stands as the first year of the degree. This degree is unique because it is taught within a Christian environment. Students will complete theology papers and enjoy weekly worship times together with other students and staff.
Students who choose to complete this music degree will receive further one-on-one tuition in their chosen stream (Instrument, Voice, and Songwriting). The Bachelor of Music combines performance and academic study. Students continue to develop skills in their electives and also develop higher research and academic skills. Students can study the type of music they love in their specialist electives including Rock, Pop, R & B, Jazz or Classical.
The degree programme has a balance of both performance and academic aspects and many of our graduates have been highly successful in their music-related careers which include performance, education, church leadership, music management and music production. Some have furthered their study with post-graduate diplomas or masters degrees.
