The ANU School of Music’s Master of Music (Advanced) is designed to nurture outstanding musical artistry through offering a diversity of musical experiences in an environment that encourages excellence, passion and entrepreneurship. We believe that discovery lies at the heart of both creativity and self expression.
Enrolling in a Master of Music (Advanced) gives you the opportunity to explore the concepts and contexts of music guided by world-class academic staff delivering lectures, tutorials, one-to-one tuition, ensembles, master classes, technical workshops and musical activities in the community.
Your learning experiences are not just confined to the classroom or recital hall: you also have the opportunity to use our million dollar recording studio outfitted with the most advanced array of microphones, recording hardware and software as well as the legendary 48 channel Neve Genesys console which is at the heart of the studio.
Internships are available with an array of professional performance companies, recording studios, production houses, and community arts organizations.
The Master of Music (Advanced) offers two streams to match your passions: Music Performance and Music Composition.
By transfer from the Master of Music with a minimum GPA of 6/7 as well as the approval of an identified supervisor for the research project/thesis.
If the total number of units attempted exceeds 72 in the same teaching period in which the 72nd unit is attempted, exactly 72 units will be used in the calculation of the weighted average mark with units from the course with the highest mark applied first followed by further units from courses in descending order of marks.
Students will be awarded up to 72 units of course credit for completed courses listed in this Masters (Advanced) degree.
