Where has time gone? We’re already half way through the year and our students have made a great start to their courses!
The CUA30915 Certificate III Music Industry (Performance)* students have been busy in class studying units in songwriting, music genres, recording, WHS and copyright and have already submitted songs that they’ve written and recorded to Triple J’s Unearthed High Competition.
Have a listen to Cabin Fever’s track, one of the bands to come out of our Cert III Class:
They have also had wonderful guest speakers pop in to impart their wisdom including Alana Jagt, Travis Demsey and Alex Hosking. Alana is a Writers Representative at APRA AMCOS as well as an independent artist who will soon be playing at the upcoming BIGSOUND Music Conference in Brisbane. Travis is a former member of The Living End and is currently doing amazing work with the City of Onkaparinga. This week they met with Alex Hosking, an established songwriter signed to Sony ATV who has worked with incredible artists around Australia and overseas.
Our Music Business Course students are equally busy! They have been studying career planning, venue booking, WHS, copyright and licensing, with visits to Lion Arts Factory to meet Courtney Duka and Jesse Coulter from Five Four Entertainment and met guest speakers Alana Jagt and the Music SA team. The students have had a great time starting to book their own events and will soon participate in a Publicity Masterclass Workshop with Libby Parker from Expressions Media.
Outside of class, our enthusiastic students have been volunteering at many festivals such as Stonecutters, Groovin The Moo, Umbrella Winter City Sounds with more to come including Spin Off. This has been a great opportunity for students to gain practical experience and to meet industry professionals.
