Musical Arts for a Day!

CPIT are looking to host students who may seriously be thinking of pursuing a music career

This year CPIT will be giving students the chance to experience a day in the life of a BMusArts

student. The day begins at 11am and will finish at approximately 4:00 pm. There will be a

lunch break at 12.00pm and students will be able to purchase food from the campus cafeteria

as well as a number of other food establishments.

Students will observe our current BMusArts students in a variety of activities and will
