A deliberate emphasis on music technology provides many interesting interdisciplinary connections between technology and music related to music performance, production and mediation, studio technology and multimedia production.
The Department of Music aims to create a platform for its students to develop both personally and artistically, to allow them to perform and impart classical music at a high level, and develop creative and independent ways of working with music. Our students will be able to meet the demands of professional music world, both as performing artists and as music educators.
