Music is your passion. It pushes you, inspires you and owns you. With the Bachelor of Music, expect to develop your creative and technical ability beyond your imagination.

The Bachelor of Music is grounded in the vibrant cultural community that is the University of Tasmania's Conservatorium of Music. As the University's premiere music degree, you can expect an exciting diversity of experiences, creative partnerships and facilities designed to prepare you for life as a professional musician or related artistic career.
  • Explore music composition, songwriting, performance or music technology across a wide range of styles with the University of Tasmania’s premiere music degree. Combine subjects to increase your music versatility and career opportunities.
  • Take part in internationally acclaimed festivals such as Mofo, Dark Mofo and the Festival of Voices, and engage with visiting artists and professional musicians through partnerships with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and other institutions.
  • Experience one-on-one tuition in many specialisations of this degree and build closer relationships with staff, students and industry professionals. Be a part of Tasmania’s intimate and internationally recognised creative community.

Music is about expression and artistry, but it is also about discipline and preparation. Whether your instrument is cello, voice or technology; your style jazz, hip-hop or classical; your music improvised, standards or remixes; our courses will have you performing and exploring historical music contexts in multiple ensembles.

The Conservatorium of Music not only provides world-class staff, facilities, study and performance opportunities, but the personal attention and incredible working relationships that are only possible in a smaller institution. Spend more time realising your creative potential studying music in Australia’s most affordable university city*.
