The University was originally founded in 1889 as a medical school. Currently there are 14 faculties, six colleges, eight institutes and six centres all situated at three different localities in the greater Bangkok area. The College of Music was established in 1994 and was the first music conservatory in Thailand to offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in various areas of music. The music school is housed in a new building with 42 practice rooms, 40 teaching rooms, 40 rooms for lectures, small and large ensembles and an all-purpose performance hall. There is a well-equipped music library. A monthly music journal is published in Thai language. Two music programs unique to Thailand are the Bachelor’s degree programs in jazz studies and music industry and technology. Ensembles include a wind band, jazz groups, a choir, a saxophone quartet and Thai ensembles. The doctoral degree in music is the first of its kind in Thailand. Scholarships for music study are offered to students from neighbouring countries. A pre-college Young Artists Music Program is offered, providing high school students with the knowledge and skills to enable them to apply for entry to the Bachelor' degree. The Electronic Music Center houses a musical instrument digital interface (MIDI) lab and a well-equipped recording studio, and caters for computer-assisted musical instruction. The College produces CDs of Thai and Western music. Music research seminars are held annually. There is a museum of musical instruments from South-East Asia. An on-campus Musica Arboretum is a place to plant trees used in making musical instruments. General interest music programs for the public are held on campus, at the Siam Paragon shopping mall and the Seri Center shopping complex both during the day and at weekends. Catering for all age groups, the aim is to provide music for all.
