Minor in Music
The Minor in Music is particularly attractive to students from other disciplines - theatre, dance, communications, interdisciplinary studies and others - who have a particular desire to extend their musical knowledge and skills for personal growth and development.
The Minor in Music is offered in classical and contemporary style. There is no Minor in Jazz Studies.
Note: Students enrolled in the Minor in Music are excluded from taking private study instruction for credit.
- There is no audition required for this program. You must already be Concordia student in a Major other than the Major in Music.
- Once you are accepted as a student at Concordia and wish to add a Minor in Music, please download the "Internal Transfer of Program Request Form" and submit it to the Department of Music at GM 500-01.
- Applicants to the Minor in Music must write a Basic Theory Test, after submitting the Transfer Program form (See next section).
Basic Theory Testing
After submitting the Transfer of Program form, please email Music@Concordia.ca and ask to have the Basic Theory Test sent to you.
The basic screening is the minimal requirement for admission – you should be comfortable with intervals, basic chord construction, keys, scales, and rhythms. Higher level placement tests are available upon request, if you have had prior formal music training and would be ready for more advanced courses.
Note: A Minor must be combined with a Major or Specialization in another discipline; it may not be taken on its own.
