During this program you’ll complete an applied community service placement and a research project. The final requirement is a presentation of your research in a public community setting where your leadership is demonstrated in context.
The Community Music program from Wilfrid Laurier University is designed for community leaders who are, or plan to be, engaged in creating or making music with diverse populations in schools, places of worship, private studios, seniors’ homes, community centres or other venues where music making occurs.
Those who are currently in music careers will find this program tailored to the deepening of their skills and interests through scholarship and applied experience. Those completing undergraduate programs will find this to be a natural progression that builds on the foundational experiences and developing musicianship acquired in their undergraduate years of study.
Community Music provides you the skills to be successful in a number of careers, including:
- ensemble leaders and administrators
- classroom and studio teachers
- adult education teachers and support staff
- arts councils administers
- administrators and managers of arts-based businesses, schools and music camps
- music/leisure coordinators at seniors residences
