The University of Toronto is the largest university in Canada and is consistently ranked within the top 20 universities in the world.
The Faculty of Music at UofT brings together specialized and intensive instruction in music with the resources and breadth of one of the world’s great universities. And yet tuition is substantially less than at many American universities and music conservatories.
UofT Music has a wide selection of courses in performance (Classical and Jazz), education, composition, history, theory, and world music as well as in areas such as music and health, music technology, and early music. The high standards at UofT Music insist on the development of technique, aural perception, and critical thinking; the supportive learning environment stimulates creativity in pursuit of artistic and academic goals.
UofT Music offers a diverse and experienced faculty that includes musicians from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company, and many other local arts organizations. Students work individually and in small classes with faculty who are recognized internationally for their excellence.
Toronto: A dazzling major cultural hub easily accessed from anywhere
Catching the world’s top vocalists and instrumentalists in recital, attending a premiere of a new orchestral work, visiting a jazz club, hearing an ensemble of traditional Chinese instruments—these experiences and many more are a pleasant walk or short subway ride from campus. Combined with the hundreds of concerts, lectures, workshops, and conferences hosted by UofT Music each year, the musical landscape is one that few other locations can match.
