SAE Creative Media Institute is preparing the future of the music industry with their new fast-tracked Bachelor of Music degree.
Whether students see themselves on stage in front of thousands, in the studio producing records, or creating their own live events, this modern two-year course will give students a unique learning experience that's tailored to their career aspirations, so they can seamlessly transition into the music industry.
With an array of electives to choose from, students can learn everything from songwriting and music business to studio music production, or specialise in one of four pathways including songwriting and music production; electronic music production; music industry and business; and creative musicianship. Some of the careers students can look forward to upon graduation are as songwriters, music producers, DJs, artist managers, content creators and music entrepreneurs.
SAE’s Bachelor of Music campaign features successful Australian DJ, vocalist, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur, Anna Lunoe, who comments on how enjoyable the process of starting a career is.
“I am stoked to be involved with the launch of SAE's new Bachelor of Music degree, while supporting the future of music,” Anna says. “Creating a career in the industry is an incredible journey, and learning skills from people who have been there and done it allows you to own your path, while building the career you want.”
Chief Operating Officer at SAE’s parent company Navitas, and former music industry executive (EMI Music, Splendour in the Grass, and Secret Sounds), Matthew Evans says how relevant this course is in the current climate.
“It’s been well reported that there’s a major skills shortage in the music industry,” Matthew says. “The sector is rapidly evolving, which is why we’ve recognised a need for graduates to possess an array of different skills – this course supports that.”
“With the learnings and skills they’ve developed, graduates will be more versatile to any potential changes in the market, and be industry ready from day one.”
For over 45 years, SAE have been leaders in creative media, helping the next generation of creatives and innovators. SAE Music Course Leader and producer, David Turner added how this course had been developed to support the needs of students.
“The beauty of this degree is regardless of whether a student has just left high school or has worked in the industry for the past ten years, it’s tailored to their career aspirations,” he says. “The fact that it is fast-tracked over two years as well, means students can get into the industry sooner.”
“We’ve spent a long time consulting industry professionals, so students can expect a music course that’s highly relevant, that equips them with sought-after skills, and provides them with inspiring work placement opportunities through our industry partners.”
Some SAE graduates to have made it in the music industry include Sampa The Great; Jon George and James Hunt from Rüfüs Du Sol; Chelsea Cullen; Mr Bill; and Isaac De Boni.
