The Certificate III in Music Industry (Performance) is an entry level course that prepares you for higher level study and increased job outcomes. When you graduate you could find work in assistant roles or entry level positions in the music industry. This course gives you a broad range of skills that build on your ability as an instrumentalist, vocalist or composer/songwriter.

The Certificate IV in Music Industry (Performance) teaches you a broad range of skills that build on your natural talent as an instrumentalist, vocalist or composer/songwriter. You will get an introduction to the structure of the music industry including the different job roles available, music genres and copyright. It is not an entry requirement, however it is ideal if students undertaking the Certificate IV have completed the Certificate III in Music Industry (Performance) and have either the ability to play an instrument, perform as a vocalist or compose music or songs (or perhaps you have all three?).

The Diploma of Music Industry (Performance) is a great program for anyone who has a solid grounding in music or has music industry experience and wants to take their skills and knowledge to a higher level. It is highly recommended that you have completed your Certificate IV in Music Industry (Performance) or have equivalent skills and knowledge (this may be assessed by an audition or submission of a portfolio).
