Become a music creator of the future. In this specialisation you’ll develop skills in composition for acoustic and electronic instruments, song-writing and music for other media such as film and video games. You’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with performance students, write for international visiting artists and make your own recording projects.

In addition to testing composition techniques in performance scenarios, you’ll learn how to engage with the variety of music technology in the industry for composing, recording, mixing, mastering, interactive music and software programming. Through our partnership with the Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (MESS), you’ll have access to vintage electronic equipment, and the school provides an innovative studio and recording space.
