Brock University has committed over $4,000,000 to our awards programs for 2018-19. International students pursuing undergraduate studies at Brock are eligible to receive awards and are subject to international tuition rates.
The goal of the Department of Music, part of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, is to prepare students for their chosen musical career and to produce critically aware musicians with a broadly based musical education. The Department of Music offers four-year programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Music (BMus) Honours, a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Honours in Music, a BA with Major in Music and a Pass BA degree program. Students may also pursue a combined major or a minor in Music. The co-curricular Music Ed Plus program creates experiential learning opportunities and expanded community engagement through volunteer work, performance possibilities, and chamber music ensembles; students attend Career Services workshops, concerts and guest lectures, and can be involved in a mentorship program.
BMus and BA Honours students may earn a Concentration in Music Education or Music History and Theory. BMus students may declare a Concentration in Music Performance following a successful audition. All concentrations are satisfied by successfully completing designated courses in addition to general program requirements.
Students take core courses in music history, theory, general musicianship and choral ensemble. Students in the BMus program must take lessons in one of the following areas: piano, pipe organ, voice, classical guitar, harp, flute, oboe, clarinet, classical saxophone, bassoon, trumpet, French horn, trombone, tuba, percussion, violin, viola, cello and double bass. If lessons are not taken in successive years, students must re-audition before proceeding to the next year of applied music.
An exciting partnership with the adjacent FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre gives Brock Music students the opportunity to participate in performance-based classes right on the stage. The acoustically and visually stunning Cairns Recital Hall functions as the Music Department’s large classroom. The hall hosts conducting classes, choir rehearsals, performance masterclasses and public recitals, all of which take place right on the oversized stage. Larger events are held in the 782-seat Partridge Concert Hall housed in the same remarkable building.

In the late 1950s, there was growing public discussion about how Niagara should have its own university. Its residents wanted young people to get a good education without having to leave the area.
The grassroots sentiment became a movement when, in November 1957, the Allanburg Women’s Institute asked the Ontario government to “favourably consider the placing of a university in the Niagara Peninsula.”
Momentum grew. By fall 1962, the Brock Founders Committee was incorporated. It received approval to create a new university, then developed an administrative and academic plan. Then it began raising money.
After years of meetings and fundraising, Brock opened in September 1964. It had 127 students who attended class in a refurbished refrigeration factory at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment in St. Catharines. In 1966, the landmark Schmon Tower was completed, and faculties began moving “up the hill” to the University’s permanent home atop the Niagara Escarpment.
For the next 30 years, Brock sent thousands of graduates on to successful careers. It built a name for its personal quality of teaching afforded by attentive faculty and controlled class sizes. As the new millennium dawned, enrolment soared. Brock transformed from an undergraduate institute to a comprehensive university with flourishing research, graduate and doctoral programs.
The campus steadily expanded to keep pace with the demand for a Brock education. It’s a pattern that continues with the construction of world-class research labs, a landmark fine arts complex and an international centre.
Brock serves its community as a cultural, academic and recreational centre, bringing excellent facilities to the people who created the University all those years ago. We are committed to building our community and to fostering an environment that serves students and neighbours.
