For the first year students complete the Certificate III in Music Industry.  The focus is on performance and song writing in contemporary music and is recommended for students who are competent on Guitar, Bass, Keyboards, Drums or Voice.


This qualification prepares candidates for the job roles of musician/singer-songwriter and is a pathway for studying a Diploma of Music at a State Training Provider or Contemporary Music at university. It reflects the role of individuals who use well-developed music skills and a broad knowledge base in a wide variety of music industry contexts. You will apply solutions to a defined range of unpredictable problems, and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources.
