Bachelor of Music
University of Southern Queensland - Springfield

Course outline

UniSQ’s Bachelor of Music focuses on developing the musician as a creative and independent musician and communicator. Throughout their study at UniSQ, graduates will have tailored their skills to meet the diverse and evolving requirements of the independent, contemporary musician. Today’s musician is no longer reliant on old structures of production and distribution, and continually evolving technologies provide opportunity for artists to develop and distribute products and services in a more sustainable and immediate way. From digital artistic collaborations through to teaching music lessons via Skype, UniSQ’s Bachelor of Music acknowledges that today’s musician will be globally connected. As a student in the music practice major, you’ll explore individual and collaborative music making, live and digital performance, and songwriting, composition and musical arrangement. In the musical communication major, you will learn to speak the languages of music, explore musical cultures, and engage with relevant theoretical concepts, enabling communication both between musicians, and between musicians and audiences.
