The College of Music, Mahidol University was established with an aim to produce music students of high quality, with good taste and with a social conscience. Such aims are reflected in all components that make up the College: the curriculum, buildings, and activities organized by the College, etc. From its establishment to the present, the College has expanded, developed and progressed in all aspects, from teaching quality, number of students, buildings, social and international missions. The College retains potential for future development.

The progress of the College of Music is the proof of the development in quality of all involved parties. The future of the College of Music is therefore not about the future of a music college, but about the future of a musical utopia in a borderless world.

The first music school in Thailand to offer programs of study ranging from the early childhood to doctoral level, the College of Music now has over 110 full-time faculty members at the Salaya campus, serving over 1,200 students. The College’s Salaya campus is comprised of ten buildings, including ongoing construction of the South East Asia Music Museum.
