About us
With our new building, facilities & equipment, instruments, and programmes, these are exciting times at hkbu's music department.

For over 40 years the Department of Music has provided hundreds of graduates with a practical, creative and intellectual foundation for careers in music and music related fields. Our B.A. (Hons) in Music degree programme is one of the largest full-time programmes in Hong Kong and is designed to enable our graduates to work intelligently and creatively towards their own aspirations. Recent graduates have developed careers in teaching music at universities, secondary and primary schools as well as careers in arts management, recording, creative media, radio and television production and other music-related fields. Many of our graduates have furthered their studies in graduate schools worldwide including the US and Europe.

The Department has 21 full-time, 24 part-time and over 100 adjunct faculty. Many of them are leading artists and academics. The music composed and performed by faculty artists is distributed globally through CDs, DVDs, live performances, and broadcast, whereas papers and books written by our scholars are published in international journals and by major presses. Although actively engaged in scholarly and creative activities, our teachers are committed to helping students reach a high level of musical and intellectual development.
