Diploma of Music ANU College



Course info


The ANU Diploma of Music is an exciting new pathway enabling students to progress to ANU and follow their passion. The diploma prepares students with the skills and knowledge required to progress into the second year of a Bachelor of Music.

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. It also requires the ability to work as an educator and facilitator or community music, and as a cultural entrepreneur.

This 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 three majors (performance, music technology and musicology).

The transition from the diploma to the bachelor will allow you to complete a Bachelor of Music after only two additional years of study for the following majors:

  • Performance
  • Music Technology
  • Musicology
