    This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
    Bachelor of Music students can study unitsets in the following disciplines as part of this course:

        * Classical Performance
        * Composition
        * Contemporary
        * Jazz Performance
        * Music Studies
        * Music Technology

    This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.

    At the outset students choose from one of the following five majors:

        * Classical Performance
        * Jazz Performance
        * Music Technology
        * Composition
        * Music Studies


    With the exception of common core subjects, the course has an internal flexibility that allows the student the choice of whether to narrowly pursue their major or, alternatively, to take a path that deliberately crosses genres. Thus, while this course is unique in being able to offer such rich interdisciplinary routes (e.g. the Classical trombonist who takes classes in Jazz improvisation; the composer who works with dance or the Technology students who takes classes in counterpoint etc.), it can also accommodate students who are single-minded and intense in their focus (e.g. the no compromise Classical violinist; the Jazz improviser specialising in bebop and the film-music composer working only in electronic media etc.).


    The course is divided into a sequential arrangement of four cornerstones of music.

    1. Principal Studies encapsulates the principal practice of each major. For performers - solo instrumental/vocal tuition is offered, as is experience and training in ensemble work and public performance skills. Composers and music technology students follow a path that is both creative and theoretical, and students following the music studies major pursue largely historical/analytical/critical studies.
      
    2. Music History and Culture: in addition to offering a broad range of historical surveys and specialist seminars, offers modules in research skills and generic communication skills for the professional musician.
      
    3. Music Techniques: comprises a sequentially graded course in music theory, aural training, improvisation, harmony, counterpoint, keyboard and composition skills.
      
    4. Ensembles and Projects: Small and large ensembles in a variety of genres; specialist projects across a range of musical topics and the opportunity to undertake electives from a multiplicity of areas.
