The Diploma of Music is an entry-level course for people with little or no formal musical training. The course aims to provide specialist training for students with an emphasis on the practice of music, particularly within the context of the role of a community musician. The course covers a range of areas including music theory (musicianship), instrumental tuition, music history and ensemble and orchestral playing. For singers there is a special stream of units on vocal studies. This course is particularly suitable for students with little formal and technical training on their chosen instrument, or prior knowledge of musicianship and history. Students can apply to transfer to the Bachelor of Music degree during the course, or at completion, if they clearly demonstrate the required skills and have successfully passed their previous study. Career Opportunities: This course provides training in the practical and theoretical skills of music performance. Opportunities exist to become community musicians or to pursue further study in the Higher Education sector.
Entry Requirements:
This course is no longer available for admission. It is only open to existing students who have already been offered a place and completed one or more units of study. Admission is by interview and audition. Some prior knowledge of music is required although special entry provisions also apply.
