Courses Under Music Degree

On this article, I am going to list out some Music course outlines in Nigeria Universities which you will study before you can to become a graduate of Music. Normally, a course outline should contain; course name, course description, course hours etc… but I am going to skip that information and go straight to Music subjects for university students.

I will only list out the subjects that is, course names which will exclude GST Courses and those courses with part II and III to avoid too much information.
