The industry is changing with increased profits and growth. Plus, self-publishing and social media are allowing artists to have control over their work. The Certificate II is the first step in the suite of music qualifications offered by TAFE NSW designed to prepare you for a career in the evolving music industry.
This course is taught, primarily, face to face on campus, with some classes being delivered via online platforms. If there are restrictions due to COVID19, we are prepared to run classes online with live teachers using interactive webinars. We did that successfully during lockdown recently, and students found it to be effective and highly social. So regardless of the situation, we can help you get the skills and career potential that you are after.
