Course details

CRICOS course code: 058463A

Level of study: Undergraduate

Summary

This course is much more than just learning how to nail a performance. It’s about learning the tools to promote yourself and stand out in a digital age. You'll choose from the most diverse range of electives to ensure you graduate as a competent musician and curator of your own career path.

Standing centre stage, crowd roaring, bass pumping, the lights come up… Making it as a musician doesn’t have to be a fantasy – make it your reality... Become a complete performing musical package with a JMC Bachelor degree.

Evolve your music writing, music technology and live performance skills under the tutelage of some of the best teachers and performers in the music industry. You will receive weekly one-on-one private lessons on your major instrument to improve your technical facility, musicality, and performance skills, and at the end of the major this will culminate into a large-scale major project, which could contain elements of recorded performance as well as a live recital.

Write and perform the music for an app, a game, or the soundtrack to a film - and collaborate with JMC students in other fields on industry projects while building a creative network you can rely on throughout your career. Learn about how to navigate the music business, and how to identify professional opportunities. Master multi-platform performance skills, mixing techniques and recording, produce and arrange for ensembles while expanding your knowledge of repertoire; and undertake your own specialist project that will see you performing a major gig to a live audience.
