Marianopolis College School of Music

Music at Marianopolis offers four distinct programs: a two-year Music program and three Double DEC programs that allow students to combine Music with a DEC in either Science, Social Science or Creative Arts, Literature and Languages over three years.

The music component of each of these programs is made up of a comprehensive series of courses focusing on classical and jazz music that includes ear training, music theory, music literature, instrumental and ensemble playing and music technology/sound recording. Instruction is offered on all string, woodwind and brass instruments, as well as piano, organ, guitar, voice, percussion and jazz voice and instruments. Piano is studied as a second instrument by most students, with the exception of those whose principal instrument is piano or organ, who are required to study voice as their second instrument.

Music students benefit from the individualized attention afforded them by Marianopolis faculty and staff. Throughout their studies, students have one private lesson per week in their principal instrument or voice. They also participate in weekly sight reading and accompaniment labs and jazz combos. The instrumental and ensemble courses are given at McGill University’s Schulich School of Music. All other courses are held at Marianopolis.

Where can studies in Music take me after graduation?
If you have made the decision to pursue university studies in music or in music-related fields, these programs are for you. They combine intensive musical study with a strong General Education component to provide you with a balanced course profile. Additionally, a DEC in Music qualifies you for admission to all general arts programs at university. The Double DECs are ideal for students who have multiple interests beyond music and want to wait before choosing a single path.

The Music programs also prepare you for careers in performance, education, composition, conducting, technology/computer applications, sound recording, musicology and research, communication arts such as radio and television and music therapy. Graduates with Double DECs have even more options. See the program pages for Science, Social Science and Creative Arts, Literature and Languages for further information about the additional choices afforded by one of the Double DEC programs.
