  • Objectives
    The Bachelor of Music (Jazz Studies) provides a broad-based academic background, while developing comprehensive abilities in music, with jazz as the main focus. In keeping with the eclectic nature of jazz, students are exposed to music from diverse cultural sources, historical periods and media. Because jazz is an applied art form, the achievement of specific high standards in vocal and/or instrumental performance, improvisation, composition, and arranging are fundamental goals of the program curriculum, and demonstration of ability in these areas is required of all graduates. Teaching music within the public school system will be a goal for some graduates; to this end, the Jazz Studies program includes all the necessary prerequisites for acceptance into the fifth year Teacher Education Program at the University of British Columbia. While most Jazz Studies graduates who do not enter the public school system as teachers embark upon creative and varied careers as self-employed professionals, the Bachelor of Music (Jazz Studies) also qualifies its graduates who wish to teach at the college or university level for some post-graduate degrees. Since 1995, some graduates from the Jazz Studies program have been admitted into Master's programs at Canadian and American universities in the areas of composition, education, conducting and performance.
