University of King's College School of Music

As a King's student, you can pursue a Bachelor of Music degree that incorporates the Foundation Year Programme into the first-year curriculum, along with selected music courses. You can also pursue a Bachelor of Arts with a major in music, or combine an interest in music with another subject, such as theatre. Non-music majors can take elective classes simply to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of music.

Above all, King's compliments excellence in composition and performance with a deeper understanding of music as a social phenomenon and a vector of philosophical, psychological and cultural expression.

Outside of the classroom, opportunities abound for students to take the lead in all kinds of musical endeavors. For the traditionally minded, join Paul Halley, the Grammy Award winning Music and Chapel Choir Director in the College's traditional chapel choir. Perform in Big Night, our campus celebration of the diverse musical talent of the King's student body. Put together a band or take part in the weekly open mic nights in the Wardroom—or pick up your guitar, bagpipes or accordion and join an impromptu jam session in the Quad.

If you appreciate music, enjoy Halifax's famous music scene, where up-and-coming artists frequently get their start. Take in visiting and local bands at venues downtown, feel a little Nova Scotian pride with a strong dose of Celtic music at a traditional pub, or enjoy the symphony of world-renowned artists at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, a mere five minutes from campus.
