The Advanced Diploma of Music (Sound Production) provides training in the theory and practice of audio engineering, focusing on both the technical and creative aspects, offering you the skills and knowledge necessary for careers in audio production.
Most of the delivery is face-to-face in teacher-led classes, computer labs, specialised teaching spaces, and weekly classroom tutorials. These campus classes use collaborative, interactive and inquiry-based learning methods. There are also some online classes and lectures.
You will also spend time each week working in small independent student groups in the various exclusive RMIT sound studios, as well as working in teams on live events in RMIT’s world-class TV studios, The Capitol and Kaleide Theatres, as well as other music venues around Melbourne.
You will also work in multimedia, broadcast and post-production, developing your teamwork, communication and technical skills in professional settings like computer audio labs with support from experienced sound engineers.
Assessments can be in the form of a quiz, practical assessments in groups, reports and/or presentations and where you will relate to the skills and knowledge acquired during each semester.
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.
