Choosing King's for your Bachelor of Music
Our classical music courses not only familiarize students with physical aspects of the art (including theory and performance techniques) and its aesthetic qualities, but also seek answers to philosophical questions concerning its nature, origin, and development. The program also offers private music instruction. You'll have plenty of amazing performance opportunities and will get to spend your time in university doing what you love--playing music!
"Faculty members are on the lookout for opportunities for students to attend summer programs and masterclasses. I applied for the Johann Strauss Foundation Scholarship and got to study in Austria with other pianists. There I met and performed with students from all over the world! Not only have I had the opportunity to improve my piano skills, but I've been able to learn a whole new instrument: the organ!" -Elsie Hoover, student.
