The Bachelor of Music degree is for musicians who wish to continue their music training whilst gaining a music business education.

Units cover areas such as business management, promotion, marketing and communications, entertainment law, economics and finance in the entertainment industry, commercial entertainment, small business, the not for profit arts sector, and international business.

Ensemble classes and general music theory studies, as well as specialist historical and theoretical studies from a wide range of musical genres, provide students with substantial opportunities to develop their knowledge of contemporary music.

The Bachelor of Music (Arts Management)  provides an excellent general management education that equips students for a broad range of managerial roles across arts, music and entertainment. 

NEW: Industry Internship Elective

Bachelor of Music (Arts Management) students will also be eligible to complete an industry internship during the final two study periods of their degree. This is an excellent way to gain direct industry experience. This can even lead to employment opportunities after your studies.

Graduates will be able to make immediate impact in real world situations, as they focus on the running of creative businesses and the dynamics of working in an arts and entertainment  environment. Units of study are also supplemented with case studies, guest speakers, and occasional secondments on to third party projects.

Performance Studies & Ensemble

The music component of the degree includes an individual lesson each week in an instrument of the student’s choice. Ensemble broadens this experience through participation in larger performing groups, from a large vocal ensemble to an Afro Cuban percussion ensemble.

Academic Studies

For the first two semesters students undertake a suite of academic units comprising Foundation Studies in theory, history and aural training.  With the foundations in place, students then undertake one Critical Studies unit per semester, each providing an in-depth study of a major musical period or genre.

Associated Studies (Electives)

Associate Studies units provide an opportunity for students to broaden their experience by undertaking studies in other departments such as Audio Technology, Composition & Music Production and Contemporary Performance.
