Music at King's

Cultivate your talents in performance, aural skills, and music theory. King's classical music courses not only familiarize students with the physical aspects of the art—including theory and performance techniques—and its aesthetic qualities, but also seek answers to philosophical questions concerning the nature, origin, and development of music. Achieve your Bachelor of Arts in Music, Bachelor of Music, or Performer's certificate at King's.
