Our students have been extremely fortunate this term to hear from a variety of guest speakers who have shared their valuable experiences in the local and national industry.
Certificate II and III in Music Industry students were joined by APRA/AMCOS’ Matt Swayne who discussed his role as Writer Services Representative and SA Office Manager. Matt explained to students how the Australasian Performing Right Association and Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society help music creators to be paid royalties for their original work and give music users easier ways to legally play and copy music they enjoy.
Certificate III Songwriting students were also visited by hip-hop artists MaddFace and 3SIDEZ worked on and discussed different musical techniques with the cohort. Event management students also visited the Garden of Unearthly Delights towards the end of the Adelaide Fringe period where they were able to speak with event planners and site managers to discuss what goes into a world class festival experience.
Certificate IV students were joined by Yewth and Fat Controller venue publicist and special events coordinator Courtney Duka and Futuresounds CEO and event organiser Patrick Lang who spoke about the best ways to get noticed as an emerging artist performing locally. Part-time students also met with Radio Adelaide Music Director and On-air Announcer Luke Penman who brought in CD and media release examples to discuss the best way to submit music to community radio online.
Music SA would like to thank all of our featured guest speakers for giving up their time to support the next generation of emerging artists and music industry professionals.
