Create original music using exciting new technology.
Music technology is a means of creative expression through music. Unlike audio engineering and music composition, you have the ability to develop your original "voice" by using a variety of software and hardware tools.
The bachelor of music in music technology integrates music performance (voice, orchestral instruments, piano, organ and guitar) with studies in digital music and audio production. A combination of traditional music study with focused courses on composing, recording and performing music with technology, it is an option for all students accepted into the School of Music.
This degree requires you to be an excellent musician and participate within the School of Music while developing your creative output. We offer courses in recording techniques, music production, sound synthesis, audio processing and sound design. Technology is ever-changing in the music industry, so our program is dedicated to helping you prepare for the future of music.
