Why Do a Certificate III or Diploma in Music Business?

SUCCESS STORIES
Gideon Benson from the Preatures, Nick Findlay at Triple J, and (Thundamentals' amazing manager) Nathan Farrell have all studied Music Business with us. Less famous graduates are working in just about every music company in Australia, such as Universal, Alberts, Warner, APRA, AMCOS, The Music Network, Triple J, Ivy League Records, and more.

LAUNCH YOUR RECORD or PRODUCTION CAREER
Many in the class are musicians learning to launch their album, EP, or single. Others are making beats and producing music, working on going pro.

START GIGGING
You'll learn to put on shows, from booking and organizing the gigs, to promotions, publicity, social media and advertising online. If you play, you can perform on lunchtime concerts on campus, our club nights, and even industry showcases if you're ready.

LEARN SKILLS YOU CAN CHARGE MONEY FOR RIGHT AWAY
You'll learn skills like social media, advertising, promotions and publicity. You can do this in any industry, making you highly employable, but you can start right now, working with bands.

GET INTO UNI WITHOUT AN ATAR
If you complete a Diploma, you don't need an ATAR to get into university. That's right, just ask them. And a Diploma in Music Business is the fastest way to get a diploma. Just one semester Cert III Music Business, then one semester Diploma Music Business, and you are in just about anywhere.

BECOME A MUSIC INDUSTRY PROFESSIONAL
We place a lot of people in music industry jobs, and many more establish thier own well paid career paths as club promoters, band managers, publicists, social media
