STUDY MUSIC PERFORMANCE AT UiTM
The art of performance is a challenging field of study which requires skill, resourcefulness, patience, intelligence and diligence.  In-born creative talent has to be nurtured with care and expert guidance.  A thorough understanding of musical language, styles and diverse genres together with a passion to communicate human emotion through sound is a hallmark of a successful performer.  Faculty of Music students will be expected to maintain a strong work ethic in research and academic excellence.

Faculty of Music performance students have the option to study classical, jazz, modern, or traditional Malaysian music styles.  Courses will include principle study, form and analysis, aural training, interpretation, performance study, history, and advanced Malaysian music.  In addition, students will perform in music ensembles such as choir, orchestra, big band, guitar ensemble, or gamelan ensembles.

In today’s advent of technology, the performer is faced with artistic demands that go beyond the traditional role of purely performing music.  The performer should have a broad knowldege base that includes the areas of music business, music technology, composing, arranging, conducting, writing, and music production, to meet employer and industry needs.

With these expectations in mind, the BMus (Hons) Programme in Music Performance is designed to equip students with a solid foundation in performance studies and practice.  At the Faculty of Music, students can expect a team of highly qualified and dedicated lecturers to guide them in their creative journey of artistic endeavours.
