Welcome to the University of KwaZulu Natal’s Discipline of Music website. Here you will find a vibrant community of staff members who are active musicians and scholars. Their commitment to mentoring students in the multifaceted art of music-making (including performance, theory, aural, history and technology) ensures that students can mature into musicians capable of performing, composing and producing research at the highest levels. Our discipline boasts a state of the art electro-acoustic studio and a well-stocked library. Feel free to contact us for detailed information about our course offerings at undergraduate and post graduate levels. Music and drama are clustered together in one administrative unit, but they have their own administrators. If you need to contact the Drama department, please visit their separate webpage.
