Wits Music is one of South Africa’s most innovative higher education music departments, preparing students for diverse careers in music in the contemporary world.

Unique at Wits Music, our students are not streamed into jazz, classical, African music, or music technology degrees. We offer an integrated Bachelor of Music (BMus) degree at the undergraduate level, providing students with a rigorous training in the disciplines of the music profession, and an opportunity to experience and learn from multiple traditions of music. In the Wits BMus, for example, a classical flautist will also do jazz theory and film music composition, and a musical theatre voice student learn orchestral arranging and South African music history.
