Mozart said that to stop music would be to stop time and Dumbledore, JK Rowling’s wizard headmaster, acknowledged that music was more magical than magic itself. With that in mind, The University of Western Australia’s School of Music is keeping up with the times with its exciting new Music for Life program.
Music and medicine, music psychology, ethno-musicology, music theatre and opera studies are just some of the vibrant and inclusive courses beginning next year.
Renowned for the high quality of its performance, composition, music education, musicology and work in world music and music as a social science, UWA Music produces graduates who go on to top jobs in a wide variety of fields.
The Music for Life program encompasses undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses as well as expanding current community outreach projects.
UWA Music is already involved in activities such as Stirling Silver, a choir for the elderly with a focus on physical and social wellbeing, and Catch Music Inc., a successful buddying scheme in which students work with young adults who live with disabilities.
Up to 100 public concerts a year offer students professional performance experience while excellent teaching informed by research in a creative, nurturing and fun environment ensures graduates emerge as well-rounded musicians.
“UWA ranks among the top of all Australian universities in terms of the proportion of graduates accepted into full-time employment. UWA graduates are both highly educated and highly employable,” UWA Vice-Chancellor, Professor Alan Robson said.
