The Department of Music offers two degrees:

  • Bachelor of Music (BM) in Performance
  • Master of Music (MMus) in Performance

The music performance programs at Fei Tian College provide rigorous conservatory-style training in either a Western or Chinese instrument while fostering cross-cultural understanding and the integration of classical Western and traditional Chinese music.

Unique features of the Fei Tian music programs include required coursework in the theory and history of both Western and Chinese music. In addition, students acquire unparalleled exposure to compositions of both musical traditions, allowing them to gain insight into their differences and commonalities. Throughout their programs, students have ample opportunity to practice harmoniously blending East-West music in chamber, orchestral, and solo settings.
