The Bachelor of Arts (Music Industry) staff have established relationships with a broad range of influential music industry organisations, which they draw on for research, teaching and assessment activities.
These organisations include the Mushroom Group (a leader in recording and publishing), Music Victoria (the peak advisory body for industry workers in Melbourne), the Australian Music Vault (which documents Australian music history), The Push (youth music organisation) as well as the Victorian Music Development Office, Australasian Performing Rights Association and Australasian Mechanical Copywrite Owners Society (APRA AMCOS), the Australian Music Centre, and many more.
In the third year of your degree, you will get a taste of music industry work when you undertake your internship. Our students have been placed at commercial record labels Universal Music Australia, Warner Music Australia, and Sony; indie labels Chapter Music and Milk! Records; touring organisations such as Frontier; radio stations such as PBS FM; and at key live music venues/companies such as The Tote, the Corner Hotel, Laundry Bar, Opera Australia, and the Melbourne Theatre Company. Other opportunities have included interning at recording studios, music festivals, management and promotion companies, and many more depending on the student’s field of interest. Many of our interns have progressed into paid roles in these organisations.
