Mount Allison University School of Music

The study and performance of music have been an integral part of Mount Allison since its earliest days. Our first diplomas in music were awarded in 1874, making ours one of the oldest music schools in Canada. The Music Department presently welcomes both students who plan to make careers in music, as well as those who wish to study music on an elective basis or to participate in extra-curricular music-making. We also enhance the musical life of our extended community through the many concerts, recitals, master classes, workshops, and special lectures presented by our faculty, students, and guest artists.

In our Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Arts (Honours and Major in Music), and Minor in Music programmes we strive to integrate academic and performance activities, to provide our students with a sound basis in the liberal arts as well as specialized musical training. Within the applied music area our Department offers a mix of performance specialties and opportunity for solo, small-group, and large-ensemble playing. We are aided by our relatively small size (around one hundred students in music programmes), our excellent facilities, our highly qualified faculty and staff, and the ambiance and collegiality of a small, residential, liberal arts university.

If you are searching for a university with an active musical life, you will find what you are looking for at Mount Allison. We invite you to contact us at any time, and we shall be pleased to answer any questions you may have regarding our programmes.
