School of Music Handbook 2015

WELCOME

Welcome to the School of Music for the 2015 academic year.


The mission of the School of Music is to deliver a world-class education in music performance, music education, musicology, as well as fostering outstanding research into music and related fields.
We are delighted that you have chosen UWA to continue your personal and musical journey. The School of Music has an enviable reputation for producing professionals as performers, composers, teachers and researchers, as well as the myriad of related areas in which School of Music graduates find employment. Our programs are designed to develop reflective and creative practitioners capable of great musical and academic achievements, who can operate in any formal or informal situation.
This handbook is your guide to the day-to-day administration of the music teaching programs offered by the School of Music at The University of Western Australia. Please read this along with the UWA Undergraduate Handbook 2015, the University’s official document relating to units and courses, which can be found at www.handbooks.uwa.edu.au. Together, these publications provide the necessary information for all music students.
Supplementary information may be issued from time to time, which will be posted on the School’s website, www.music.uwa.edu.au. A PDF copy of this handbook is also available for download on the School’s website.
Further information for students is distributed on the School notice boards (ground level) throughout the year, and other information will be distributed by email.
The information contained herein is accurate as of February 2015, but is subject to change. It’s always a very good idea to check with the School of Music office for any updates.
All questions and concerns about classes and ensembles should be addressed either to the relevant staff member or the unit coordinator.
The study of music can be challenging but ultimately rewarding. Maintain your passion for music, and remember that it is supposed to be enjoyable!
I look forward to meeting you, working with you and watching you perform. I know you will enjoy your encounters with our world-class staff members.

Dr Alan Lourens, FRSA

Head, School of Music
