Introducing the new-look School of Music website

By Dr. Richard Kurth and Tyler Stiem

Welcome to the new and improved UBC School of Music website!

Designed to work beautifully on all your devices, with eye-popping photos and video, streamlined navigation, and robust search tools, it's the culmination of many months of planning and development.

Our goal was to create a platform that amply showcases all the artistic vitality of our students and faculty, and the breadth and dynamism of our academic programs. 

We encourage you to explore the site, beginning with these highlights:

Prospective students will find inspiring stories and multimedia features as well as a new and easier to use undergraduate and graduate application guidelines. Current students will discover a new career development section and more opportunities to promote and publish their work online. Concert-goers will enjoy a much improved events calendar that offers seamless integration with iCal and Google Calendar, and social media. Alumni and supporters can find inspiring stories about recent and past graduates who are making a splash in the music world and beyond.

We hope you’ll agree that the new website projects our energies and projects more vividly. We’d love to receive your comments about the new site, and any suggestions you have for making it even more responsive to your needs and interests. Please send your ideas to Tyler Stiem, Communications Manager, at

Your valuable input will help us make as inspiring and accessible at it can possibly be!
