Performance major or minor

Most Bachelor of Music students take a major or minor in Performance. These courses allow students to refine their skills in the understanding, interpretation and execution of solo and ensemble performance. Students may elect to specialise in a particular genre - classical, jazz, contemporary or folk and world musics - or combine genres. In addition to classes, masterclasses, rehearsals and workshops at the ANU School of Music. 

Performance students have access to weekly individual instrumental lessons with a teacher (or equivalent summer schools or intensive external tuition).

Access to Performance courses is by audition.


A core group of ensembles form part of the Performance Major for students studying the Bachelor of Music. Entry to these ensembles is based on audition and ensemble need.
