Focusing on contemporary music (pop, dance, r’n’b, folk/acoustic etc.) students will examine the different styles of contemporary music and their relevance, learn structured methods to song writing and exploring creativity, ensemble performance, getting the right sound on stage, set up and use of a small P.A, rehearsal techniques and preparing for a performance.  Over the full year students will write original songs which they will be given the opportunity to perform for a live recording.

Certificate III in Music Industry – Songwriting | Performing Original Music & Event Management (for ages 16-17)

This popular course is designed to give students a fascinating insight into the music industry, focusing on band management and event management.  Students will gain an insight into the world of music business, exploring areas of creative artist management including career planning, micro business development and event logistics and planning, culminating in the delivery of a live music event.

With changes to the structure of the music industry and the increase in artists releasing music independently, good management and planning is more important than ever.  As a part of this program students will work on a project of managing a band from career planning through to booking ‘gigs’ with the program culminating in a live music event designed and managed by the students.

SACE Credits – 45 Credits at Stage 2

Certificate IV in Music Industry (Music Business)
(for ages 17-above)

This course focuses predominantly on Music Business.  Students do not need to be musicians themselves, however they must have an interest in the music industry as a career.  Musicians are also encouraged to participate, as these are the same skills they will need to pursue their own careers as a self managed artist in the modern music industry.

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who use well-developed skills and a broad knowledge base in wide variety of contexts.  They apply solutions to a defined range of unpredictable problems, and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources.  They may provide leadership and guidance to others with some limited responsibility for the output of others.

Job role examples include band/artist manager, booking agent, music marketing and promotions and self-employed independent musicians.

SACE Credits – 70 Credits at Stage 2
