Honours Bachelor of Music Therapy
In addition to meeting the regular requirements for admission to the University, admission to the B.Mus.Th. is conditional upon a successful audition evaluated by faculty members in Music. The audition will consist of:
(a) a theory evaluation test designed to show the nature and extent of the student's aptitude in music theory;
(b) a performance of at least ten minutes' length on the student's major instrument, showing a grasp of a variety of styles;
(c) a personal interview to assess the student's background in working with exceptional people and his or her suitability to pursue a career in music therapy.
Candidates should contact a program advisor in Music for specific requirements in the various performance media. If an accompanist from Music is required, two weeks' prior notice must be given to the Music office, and an accompanist's fee will be charged. Candidates auditioning in Voice or Orchestral Instruments must perform at least one selection with accompaniment.
Music courses whose middle digit is 0 may not count toward the B.Mus.Th. degree.
