Find out more information about Music

Music, or musicology is the art of combining sounds, represented as musical notes, in a succession or simultaneously in an aesthetically pleasant and rhythmical form and the integration of these aspects in a complete piece. Music uses musical instruments or the human voice to create art. Music is divided in genres that are characterised by similar melody, harmonic, rhythmic, form, orchestration, literary text where applicable and other compositional aspects.

A Bachelor or Master degree in music is very complex and can be focused on mastering a certain musical instrument, or mastering composition, conducting and orchestra or being an expert in music history. The study of music has many sub-disciplines like: ethnomusicology, historical musicology, music theory, music analysis, musical composition, musical critic and others.

Students enrolled in a music degree will gain skills like: creativity, ability to work independently and become more responsible, organised and orderly persons. By studying music, students will be able to express themselves to a range of audiences and be understood and select repertoires suited to particular performance contexts.

The wide array of possible careers for music graduates include: musician/performer, music teacher, music composer, music therapist, sound technician, radio producer, radio broadcast assistant, broadcast engineer, artist representative, artist agent/manager.
