Program description

Diploma of Music (Contemporary Performance)

Standing centre stage, crowd roaring, bass pumping, the lights come up… Making it as a musician doesn’t have to be a fantasy – make it your reality...

With connections to APRA and Berklee College of Music, JMC is known to be a launchpad into the entertainment industry for up-and-coming musicians and performers. Contemporary Music Performance at JMC is about more than just nailing your performance. It is about creating an understanding of how to arrange and compose music, mastering the tech you will use in the industry, and promoting yourself to be heard, loud and proud.

This course will give you the skills you need to stand out in this highly competitive space, and the opportunity to put your skills into practice and showcase your talent at multiple performance venues and events throughout your time at JMC.

Learn how to stand out in this rapidly expanding space and be taught by experienced and famous musicians at Diploma level. Explore live sound and recording, use industry standard software like Pro Tools, Logic and Sibelius, and perform live at music venues and events throughout your course.

Explore some of the basic concepts and principles of contemporary music, and investigate the processes involved with developing a repertoire for live performance. Masterclasses led by industry professionals and international artists will expose you to a complete range of performance techniques. You’ll also have the chance to perform regularly at iconic live venues.
