Welcome to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music

Welcome to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music

of Music Welcome to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Music is at the centre of all

Music is at the centre of all people’s lives in the 21st century. Our playlists enable us to access music from cultures and styles from all over the world. Musicians are an amazing group of people because we are the ones who are able to create, re-create, invent, and interpret music that is of our generation, our international culture, and from times past. Our exploration of music through time connects us to previous generations and projects into the future. It is an exciting time to learn to be a musician as new technology enables us to connect to listeners in so many different ways. A degree in music will set you up to be someone who can make a difference to others’ lives through your skills and humanity. Very few people can really make music at an expert level. At the Sydney Conservatorium you will have the opportunity to contribute to this vibrant expression of living and develop the expertise to sustain a lifetime of musical work.

The Sydney Conservatorium of Music is Australia's premier tertiary music institution. In addition to its significance in the Australian musical landscape, the Sydney Conservatorium is increasingly influential in the Asia Pacific. Ideally situated at the centre of Sydney's Central Business District and arts precinct and just minutes from the Sydney Opera House, the Con offers students a comprehensive musical education, including the knowledge and skills necessary for thriving in all aspects of music in the 21st century. Our brilliant, dedicated faculty and gifted student body share a passion for music and the arts, a love of learning, and a unique kinship that can last a lifetime.

Our exceptional undergraduate and graduate degree programs focus on performance, composition, music education, conducting and musicology. Mentored by leaders in each field, our students can focus on one area of expertise or pursue a combination of specialties to satisfy their creative energy. As a student of the University of Sydney, you will be engaged with scholars who will challenge you. They will inspire you. They will urge you to uncover, reach for, and achieve goals you did not know were possible. Most of all, the skills you develop and the experience gathered at the Con will forever be the foundation of your excellence as a musician, composer, and/or teacher. It will help define your career. It will shape you as a person. And you will continue drawing on it throughout your lifetime.

I invite you to share in our extraordinary and dynamic musical world. I invite you to become one of our graduates – one of the many soloists, orchestral musicians, composers, academics and educators, critics, writers, and arts administrators who are integral to shaping the world through music.

Bachelor of Music (Composition)

Bachelor of Music (Music Education)

Bachelor of Music (Music Education)

The Bachelor of Music (Music Education) degree is intended primarily as a professional training course for students wishing to become music

teachers in a school environment. The music education degree course meets requirements of professional bodies responsible for the accreditation

of

school music teachers.

In

New South Wales the major employer of school music teachers is the NSW Department of Education and Communities (DEC), which stipulates

specific musical and pedagogical skills and knowledge for a teacher to be certified as employable in departmental schools and other systems such as non government and Catholic systemic schools.

In addition to music teaching methods, music history and analysis, performance and compositional skills and knowledge, students must have

attained information and communication technology competencies and have developed an understanding of children with special educational needs.

A significant component (80-86 days) of the course must include practical teaching experience in schools. Graduating teachers also need to

meet the Teaching Standards of the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) under the jurisdiction of the New South

Wales Institute of Teachers, a professional body responsible for accreditation of all NSW teachers working in schools. Graduating teachers need

to demonstrate knowledge of subject content, pedagogy (including learning, teaching and evaluation strategies), NSW curriculum requirements

and the needs of socially, culturally, ethnically, physically and intellectually diverse groups of students in schools.

In

order to satisfy these requirements, the Music Education degree has a large core of mandated music education units of study. The major focus

is

on developing teaching skills through studies in education, music education, ensemble pedagogy and music technology.

Students undertake extended Professional Experience sessions in schools supported by both school teachers and experienced music education lecturers from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Music Education specialists also develop practical, compositional, or research skills by taking a minimum of four semesters of Principal Study in an instrument, voice, composition or musicology. Students also take part in large ensembles (eg, Choir, Wind Symphony, Early Music Ensemble) and other performance units. All students take core studies in aural perception and harmony (or jazz music skills for jazz students), studies in analysis, history and culture, and music technology.

Principal study is available in the following areas:

Brass: Horn, trombone, trumpet, tuba

Composition

Historical Performance: baroque flute, harpsichord, lute, recorder, viola da gamba, baroque trumpet

Jazz: bass, drums, electric guitar, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, vocal

Musicology stream

Organ

Percussion

Piano

Strings: cello, double bass, guitar, harp, viola, violin

Vocal Studies: classical

Woodwind: bassoon, clarinet, flute, oboe, saxophone

Core requirements for graduation with a Bachelor of Music (Music Education)

Students must successfully complete 192 credit points and reach the minimum levels of achievement in each area as outlined in the degree resolutions.

Typical enrolment patterns

Students should follow the typical enrolment patterns appropriate to their specialisation. Students are required to ensure the award course is to be completed within four years full-time or equivalent.
