Message from the Head of Department

Welcome to the webpages of the Music Department at the University of Pretoria, and on behalf of the staff I wish to thank you for showing an interest in our programmes.

My vision for this department is to

  • continue to nurture this Music Department to be the academic locus in South Africa that produces the most distinguished postgraduate researchers, prolific creative talent and performing artists

  • become a leading jazz force in this country

  • be a department that provides access and opportunity across demographics to all talented students from all South African communities who strive to maintain standards of excellence for music at UP and thereby make a contribution.

I hope you take the time to explore the information on our website which will introduce you to our different degree options, scholarship programmes, events and distinguished staff members.

Prof. Alexander Johnson

Head of the Music Department
