The vision for the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music at Monash University is to develop the complete 21st century musician.
The Monash musician is a specialist who strives for excellence but also encompasses the entire musical firmament.
Monash educates its musicians to the highest professional standards, both in western and non-western traditions; from the classical stream through to contemporary, whether composed or improvised music, including jazz, popular and world music, using the latest in immersive technologies.
The Monash musician is a global citizen, a musician without frontiers, whether it be as a performer, composer or researcher.”
