Students who audition successfully register in MUSC 120 and MUSC 125 instead of MUSC 121 (and similarly in upper years). The MUSC X25/6.0 courses may be used towards the MUSC Option components of the BMUS degree.

This required concert attendance accounts for 10% of the teacher’s component of the Applied Study mark at the end of the year.
D. By the end of the second year, students are expected to have attained the Minimum Degree Level in their instrumental or vocal applied study.
E. A maximum of 6.00 units from courses offered by other Faculties and Schools may be counted toward the program and/or Plan requirements. This includes courses in BMED, COMM, GLPH, LAW, NURS and courses in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
Note that membership (i.e. registration) in most Music Ensembles is by audition. Depending on their performance specialty, B.Mus students must complete specific ensemble requirements. See the Note 4.B. section for details.
