what people are saying

MusicSA has helped our band immensely to get up and going in the local live music scene. We were able to get valuable advice, as well as pointed in the right direction to get bookings at some great local venues.
Bec Harris, Local Band Member
The courses MusicSA offers are a very high standard, and they assisted me in gaining a pathway into the music industry. I’d highly recommend enrolling in one of the many course options if the music scene is your thing.
Stephen Thomas, Student
MusicSA were of great help to our business when we were looking to source some local music for use in a commercial production. They understood exactly what we were looking for, and put us in touch with a great artist.
