Bachelor of Music (Production)
JMC Academy - Brisbane

Course outline

Music technology has shifted the possibilities of how songwriters and composers create, and the JMC Music Production course enables creatives to work in a practical way, focusing on core musicianship skills and industry-standard DAW platforms to create music.

This course will give you the skills you need to be distinct 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.

The music production stream is focused on the use of technology as a musical tool and encourages the adaptation of new technologies, and incorporation of new software, hardware, and other media alongside your music.

Getting some time in the studio is a crucial part of your study at JMC and during the course, you’ll be working with live and virtual instruments to craft your music. Designed for recording high-quality live performances, our songwriting suites and production studios feature ProTools, Logic, Ableton Live and Native Instruments, along with a variety of MIDI controllers, synthesisers, and top of the range microphones.

With advanced-design campuses in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, ongoing technology upgrades, a dedicated team of academics and industry professionals, and a network of international master class lecturers, JMC Academy is committed to ensuring our graduates make their own indelible mark on industry.

During your time with us you’ll get the opportunities to participate in international masterclasses, study tours, and music and songwriting camps. JMC Music and Songwriting students can apply for The International Songwriters Camp at Haarlem Conservatory in the Netherlands, the Nandos Music Exchange in London or the JPop study tour in Japan.

All JMC bachelor degree graduates are eligible to apply for entry into JMC Academy’s Master of Creative Industries, or relevant post-grad qualifications at any Australian university.
