Our music major sequence develops your knowledge and skills in music language, analysis and musicianship. You’ll be supported to become a professional musician as you learn to apply the knowledge and skills required to perform, create, manipulate, interpret and critique music in safe and culturally appropriate ways, and in ways that align with the competency norms of Australia's creative industries. A music sequence does not require an audition for entry at ACU. The major is also a pathway to becoming a secondary-school music teacher when combined with a tertiary teaching qualification.
Career outcomes that can arise from this sequence include teaching (when the major is combined with year 12 music performance or AMEB grade five and a tertiary teaching qualification), freelance composition (for film, television, video games, and commercials), music journalism and blogging, publishing, music administration, music retail, music research and work as 'embedded' creative practitioners using the skills developed through the sequence in the corporate and public sector.
We're available 9am–5pm AEDT,
Monday to Friday
