In this degree, you will be taught by staff who have many years of industry and research experience.
Our ongoing lecturing staff hold relevant PhD qualifications and have first-hand knowledge of music performance, international touring, music journalism, event coordination and/or the music business. In addition, we invite guest teachers from across the spectrum of cultural organisations, arts bodies, and music businesses. This enables our students to experience the breadth and depth of employment possibilities in the music industry.
You’ll learn through a variety of teaching and learning modes, such as lectures, seminars, tutorials, work integrated learning and problem-solving workshops. There will also be opportunities for hands-on learning through music-making in our Ableton Live music production studio, and DJ studio. The final year of study involves an industry placement where you’ll learn from professionals in a real-world setting.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
