Histoire administrative

Queen's University has offered a Bachelor of Music program in the Faculty of Arts and Science since 1969, although students have studied music, either formally, or informally, since the University was founded. In the 19th century, the main vehicles for students with a musical turn were church choirs and the Queen's Glee Club. Formal musical studies began with the appointment of Frank Llewelyn Harrison as resident musician in 1935. Harrison-LeCaine Hall, opened in 1974, as a home for the music program, is named jointly for him and Hugh LeCaine, a scientist, composer, Queen's graduate, and a major figure in the development of electronic music in Canada. The Department of Music became the School of Music in the early 1990s, and its Department Head became a Director, although it is still a unit within the Faculty of Arts and Science. The School prepares students for a wide variety of professional careers in music, and prides itself on the freedom it grants upper year students to create their own program of studies within six major areas of music instruction: music education, performance, music theory, composition, music and technology, and musicology. In an effort to improve the quality of the learning environment, Harrison-Lecaine Hall completed internal renovations in the summer of 2000. Special features of the School are its Electroacoustic Music Studio, composers from which have played a significant role in developing electronic music in Canada, and the Music Library, which provides a wide assortment of albums, texts, and theoretical treatises for students. In 2015, the Dan School of Drama and Music was formed, merging the Department of Drama and the School of Music into one school.
