KEEPING up to beat with the times, the Conservatory of Music (Music) will soon be adding new majors to its curriculum.

In an interview with the Varsitarian, Music Dean Raul Sunico said the College is planning to introduce Jazz, Music Therapy, and Musical Recording soon, but only Jazz would be implemented next year due to the lack of faculty, rooms, and facilities.

“You have to make changes in the curriculum no matter how good it is, because there will always be something new (to add),” he added.

Sunico said the College’s non-degree courses had been made modular starting this semester to allow students to enrol anytime without missing any lesson.

He said the non-degree courses, which were offered beginning last semester, include music lessons and some theory courses that are open to anyone.

Meanwhile, the new music curriculum has been fully implemented this year with electives such as Jazz, Musicology, Music Literature, and Musical Acoustics.

With the electives, Sunico hopes the students would become well-rounded individuals since they can now enrol subjects not related to their majors. J. C. B. Bautista
