The Bachelor degree is designed to help you create strong, focused compositions and productions that capture your creative musical ideas across a variety of styles. It will help you understand the principles of recording and music production, Film and TV music, inventive applications of music technology, principles of top-lining, and writing and arranging for a variety of ensembles using acoustic and electronic instrumentation.
As part of a Music Production major study, you will receive weekly one-on-one private production lessons with an experienced producer, that will culminate in you working on a large project in your final trimesters, which could include elements of both recording and performance. Master songwriting in the digital domain, refine your recording skills, explore music distribution and marketing strategies, and learn the importance of co-writing and collaboration.
While talent will get you far, to be successful, it is vital as a producer and music-maker to be ‘tech savvy’ and skilled with industry standard software – Avid Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, MaxMSP, and Ableton Live for recording, and Sibelius for crafting high quality notated scores. The Bachelor degree also explores channels of music distribution, monetisation and copyright, and on graduation you will have completed a rich portfolio of your own productions and songs as a showcase of your talent.
In only 2 years you can graduate with a Bachelor degree thanks to our accelerated full-time course. Part-time study is also available to domestic students. International students may choose to complete the course in 3 years [CRICOS 058463A] rather than the accelerated 2 year option.
