Early Music (Voice); B.Mus. (Major)

In the Early Music program, you will learn the elements of early music performance practice and to sing early music. The program combines individual lessons and ensemble training with the study of historical approaches to performance in its various activities - workshops, master classes, guest lecturers and research projects.

McGill owns an important collection of early instruments and historical copies from the 15th to the early 19th century, including over a dozen harpsichords, five organs, sackbuts, cornetti, baroque and classical flutes, oboes, clarinets, horns, bassoons, viols, and more than a dozen baroque string instruments.

Minors, double degrees and double majors

Once you're enrolled in this program, you can apply to add a minor in another music field or from another faculty at McGill University.

You can also apply to add a second major or degree to your B.Mus. Early Music (Voice) program.

Program structure

The B.Mus. Early Music Voice program is made up of 126 credits.
