Study our specialised study abroad music certificate program in Melbourne, the live music and major events capital of Australia.

You can chose from a range of courses in music technology, music theory, music composition, music production, music cognition and the history and culture of music.

The program focuses on popular music styles such as rock, pop, jazz, and electronic music. You'll be able to compose and/or produce original creative works.

All courses are taught by highly skilled and experienced Australian and International industry professionals, utilising industry standard music software and hardware.

Courses are taught at both the Footscray Park Campus and at Kindred Studios, our purpose built recording, production and rehearsal studios in nearby Yarraville.
