You can turn your musical talent into a remarkable career.
The ANU Bachelor of Music prepares you for the ‘portfolio’ career followed by most modern music professionals. A successful contemporary music career requires not only advanced skills in performance, composition, improvisation and other areas of creative practice, but also familiarity with music technology, and the ability to work as an educator and facilitator of community music, and as a cultural entrepreneur.
Our degree is designed to reflect music as it is understood and practiced in contemporary Australian society. This education experience covers all genres (classical, jazz, contemporary, folk and world music) and offers specialist courses across four majors (performance; composition, arranging and sound design; music technology; and musicology).
The Bachelor of Music provides a strong foundation for a career in music. Students graduate with a range of professional skills that are applicable to careers in performance, music education, music advocacy, academic research, music entrepreneurship, and digital media and technology. This is particularly advantageous given that musicians increasingly are required to exercise a wide range of skills including performer, teacher, cultural entrepreneur, arts manager, music technologists and scholar.
Upon successful completion, students will be able to:
Applicants must have either completed recognized upper secondary studies to the required standard and recognised by ANU as comparable to Australian Year 12 or completed at least one year of tertiary study to the required standard.
At a minimum, all applicants must meet program-specific academic/non-academic requirements, and English language requirements. Admission to most ANU programs is on a competitive basis. Therefore, meeting all admission requirements does not automatically guarantee entry.
