Programs at St. Lawrence College are delivered using a variety of instruction modes. Courses may be offered in the classroom or lab, entirely online, or in a hybrid mode which combines classroom sessions with online learning activities. Program delivery can be run weekdays, weekends or evenings. Upon registration, each full-time student is provided a St. Lawrence College email account which is used to communicate important information about program or course events.
Theory Proficiency: Though there is no Theory pre-requisite to the program, it is strongly advised students have some understanding of the rudiments of music theory (note-reading, scales, intervals, rhythm). Placement tests are held at the beginning of first semester to divide Theory classes according to level of understanding.
Queen’s University Ensembles: MDM students can audition to participate in ensembles at the School of Music at Queen’s University. Participation in these ensembles will appear on the student’s Queen’s University transcript as a Queen’s audit credit.
Concerts and Workshops: On-campus and off-campus performing opportunities exist for students in the program.
Technology: ADOBE CS5 Production Premium Suite is used for Photography, Video and Motion Graphics. LOGIC PRO is the application used for Recording. Students will work in PC and Mac labs.
