For Academic year 2019-2020

Message from the Dean: College of Music, Mahidol University, has offered vigorous musical training from pre-college to doctorate levels for several decades. Its intentions have been to promote academic excellence and to help students reach any artistic level they hope to achieve. In this contemporary society, everything is more tight-knit than ever before. With national borders being increasingly blurred, a person is now a citizen of both the state of his/her residence and the world. The College feels the responsibility to equip students with competent skills and the ability to work both as an individual and as substantial part of a team in multicultural environments. Although the quality of teachers and school prestige are crucial factors, we also realize the importance of a climate that is suitable for freethinking, self-autonomy and inspiration. Aside from its rich landscape and facilities, College of Music is filled with accomplished musicians and scholars who can serve as role models and provide effective guidance. However, without determination and imagination, it would be impossible to achieve a specific goal. If the student’s desires are international success and acclaim, he/she is obliged to be creative, exceptional, and open-minded. Consistency and the virtue of life-long learning are of utmost importance. Lastly, our education cannot be successful unless we produce graduates who have a high degree of social awareness. They need to concern themselves with public welfare, and this kind of consciousness should not be nurtured in university alone. Everyone is encouraged to participate in social services and express compassion to other human beings elsewhere. If music is an indication for happiness and well-being of a society, we, as musicians, must play a strong role in fostering its unity, growth and prosperity. Dr. Narong Prangcharoen Dean, College of Music, Mahidol University

The Music Education major pursues the goal of becoming a visionary music educator who is concerned with the present and future of music education, a creative teacher who understands significant music education disciplines and is able to design the best method of teaching and learning for students with various backgrounds and abilities, and a developer who initiates the growth in music education and possesses the skills for educational administration. Ph.D. students in both areas will be able to demonstrate their excellence through public presentation, both written and oral, at the domestic and international levels. Doctor of Music Program (D.M.) The primary objective of the Doctor of Music degree is to prepare artist-pedagogues for careers in higher education and in the professional world. The D.M. major in Performance emphasizes artistic development at the highest professional level. All students engaged in this program of study receive in-depth instruction in a broad knowledge of performance, literature and pedagogical studies.

The specializations for the D.M. in Performance and Pedagogy include Western classical music and Thai traditional music. The D.M. major in Music Composition is for students who demonstrate a high level of creative ability in writing and arranging music and have a strong interest in its theoretical aspects. Students who complete a degree in this field are expected to achieve professional success as composers, arrangers, theorists or composition teachers, film composers, commercial orchestrators, or transcribers. The D.M. major in Conducting prepares students for careers in higher education and in the professional world.
