Admissions are now open for Music SA Courses in 2017 with Certificate II in Music Industry (Pop Performance), Certificate III in Music Industry (Songwriting & Event Management) and Certificate IV in Music Industry (Music Business) now available for student enrolment.
New to 2017 – the Certificate II in Music Industry (Pop Performance and Songwriting) is a full year Certificate program aimed for ages 15-16 years in creative song writing and ensemble music performance. 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.
The Certificate III in Music Industry (Songwriting and Performing Original Music & Event Management) is a popular course is designed to give VET 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.
In the Certificate IV in Music Industry (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. Some job role examples include band/artist manager, booking agent, music marketing and promotions and self-employed independent musicians.
