Music Industry and Arts Performance Program Takes Passion and Adds Business Savvy

Centennial College's Music Industry and Arts Performance offering proves that not all music programs are created equal. While other similar offerings focus on just one aspect of the industry, this all encompassing undertaking allows students to nurture musicality and creativity, raise awareness of a variety of music cultures, build knowledge of music-related technologies, and develop business and entrepreneurial skills.

Here is a closer look at one of Toronto's respected music education programs.
  • To attend the offering, applicants must have completed an Ontario Secondary School Diploma or equivalent, or have mature student status (19 years or older). They must also have completed Grade 12 English C or U, or equivalent (minimum grade required) or take the Centennial College English Skills Assessment for Admission.

  • To demonstrate their dedication, applicants must attend a mandatory program admission session to audition on a primary instrument or voice, and complete an evaluation of their music theory knowledge, and a questionnaire about their music background and training.
  • The program takes a total of three years to complete and offers an Advanced Diploma.
  • During private music lessons and ensemble rehearsals, professional musicians mentor students.
  • Once they have had a chance to get a view of the whole industry, the third year splits students into their choice of the music creation and business stream or the music creation and technology stream.
  • Throughout the offering, students have many opportunities to perform and record.
  • Making Centennial College's undertaking one of the most respected music programs Toronto has to offer is its six-week work placement. This is an opportunity for students to gain experience in the real world.
  • No other music program - not even Toronto's music degree programs - offer the same blend of performance, creative, contextual, business, and technology courses.
  • Also making this one of the most respected music schools Toronto has are the particular course that are offered, including: Creativity in Context, Musicianship, History of Western Art Music, Digital Music Creation, Music Business Fundamentals, Indigenous Music in Culture, Introduction to Audio Engineering, Music in Community, Advanced Sound Production and Recording and more.
  • Unlike other music college Toronto-based offerings that train students for only one part of the field, this program allows students to become culturally aware musicians and singers with the technological and business savvy necessary to work in the music industry today - and in the future.
