DescriptionThe Selkirk College Music Program has been preparing students for the commercial entertainment industry for over 25 years. Using a diverse cross section of musical styles, Selkirk College allows students to explore the best that each genre has to offer from jazz to rock, classical and world music. Our teaching methods are based on those of the prestigious Berklee School of Music.

The Contemporary Music and Technology program at Selkirk College is a two-year diploma program developed to train musician performers for the commercial music and entertainment industry. The course of study is comprised of an initial core year after which students may select one of five program majors: Performance, Production, Composition, Songwriting and Directed Studies. The curriculum includes individual instruction on guitar, bass, drums, saxophone, violin, vocals and keyboards, as well as a solid grounding in music theory and ear training. Individual and ensemble instruction and practice is offered throughout both years of the program. Rock and blues, jazz, folk and world music are the primary instructional styles.
