Everything about studying Music in Malaysia.

Musicians playing with instruments.

If becoming a professional musician is a part of your plan, you’ve probably considered getting a music degree at some point. 

Music is one of those professions that requires artistic skills more than formal education, but a degree can help you find jobs that offer a regular salary instead of payments for gig work.

Just like acting, performing arts and film-making, music is a profession you can enter without a bachelor’s degree. But, even if you don’t have a four-year degree, you must have professional-level skills. 

In the music world, these skills are often called your chops. As a gigging or session musician, your ability to work will depend entirely on your ability to demonstrate your chops in an audition. If you aren’t good enough at your instrument, a degree won’t help you get work in music venues or recording studios.

Read on more about benefits in taking a degree in Music here.

What is Music studies all about?

Notebook with Musical elements written on it.

The Bachelor of Music (BMus) is a specialist degree that will suit you if you have musical skill and ambition or just a sheer love for music.

Combining theory with practical tuition, you’ll have access to specialist teaching facilities. 

There are several degree paths in Music studies:

1. Bachelor of Music (BM) or Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) A degree path for students who want to become professional musicians. This is generally a four-year programme. Most students in these degree paths will be required to give junior and/or senior recitals. 

2. Bachelor of Music Education (BME) This is usually a long path, and this is due to the music department, education department, and general education requirements. As a BME, you will be prepared to teach at kindergarten level up to the twelfth grade. 

3. Bachelor of Arts in Music (BA) For students who wish to pursue a double major, a career potentially outside of music, or for students who may not have aspirations in performance or education. This degree usually requires base-level music classes with some upper-level courses. It's usually a shorter degree path, though it requires general education classes, and possibly foreign language requirements. 

4. Bachelor of Science in Music (BS) The BS degree is offered for the music business, music industry, recording, or engineering. Programmes for the BS degree can range from one to four years, depending on the type of institution you attend (trade school vs. traditional university, for example). 

What are the major fields in Music studies?

Different musical instruments.

1. Sound engineering and music production This is offered in both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science.
