Whilst studying the course you can specialise in electronic music production, song writing, live sound, music performance, event management, sound engineering, music promotion and digital marketing.
You will work alongside the music performance and production arts students, our expert staff and industry pros in a vibrant student community to create your own musical masterpieces. You will learn how to turn simple music ideas into finished work ready for digital distribution or live performance.

You will live and breathe what it is like to be a professional musician or producer, enjoying a learning experience that will put you at the top of any employer’s list and give you the best opportunities to kick start your career.
To compliment your learning you will also have opportunity throughout the course to work on live events in front of audiences across multiple local venues, developing your skills in the real working environment exposing you to the industry and giving you the employment edge. You will do this in collaboration with the Music Performance students.
