Master of Music

What does music mean? Who is it for? And what might be its future?

We’re not looking for students who know the answers; we’re looking for students who ask the questions. Enrolling in a Master of Music gives you the opportunity to explore the concepts and contexts of music guided by world class academic staff delivering lectures, tutorials, one to one tuition, ensembles, master classes, technical workshops and musical activities in the community.

Your learning experiences are not just confined to the classroom or recital hall; you also have opportunities to undertake internships with an array of performance companies, production houses, public service departments, and collecting institutions.

The Master of Music offers two streams to match your passions:

  • Music Performance
  • Music Composition

Career opportunities

The Master of Music will advance your career in the traditional and emerging creative industries as a performer, composer, researcher, arranger, entrepreneur, scholar, teacher, cultural leader, or as a mixture of all of the above.
