About this course

Get a head start in the world of sound

If you've dreamed of being a music producer working in state of the art studios with analogue and digital recording equipment, then Melbourne Polytechnic's Advanced Diploma of Music Industry (Sound Production) could be just the jam for you. Melbourne is the music capital of Australia and one of the greatest music cities in the world, with more live music venues per person than New York, Paris, Berlin or Tokyo. The music industry generates $25 million per year in Melbourne alone and there's no better place to learn the ins and outs of the music production industry.

Purpose Built Facilities and Industry Connected Trainers

The Advanced Diploma of Music Industry (Sound Production) is designed as a hands-on course, and students will learn at an industry standard. You'll train in Melbourne Polytechnic's purpose-built, fully-equipped sound studios. Work with analogue studio equipment and digital audio workstations (DAWs) like Abelton and Pro Tools. This course also focuses on collaboration and entrepreneurship, with creative integrated projects fostering connections between students. All of your teachers are active musicians with years of musical experience to help you amplify your musical skill set. Melbourne Polytechnic's musical alumni include the founding members of ARIA-award winning band, Augie March, and rock and roll DJ icon Stan Rofe.

A Variety of Outcomes

At the conclusion of the course, you'll have the skills to produce electronic music or develop sound design skills for theatre, film and television. You might work as a music producer, or work in post-production for radio, television, film and digital media. Other career opportunities include positions as a front of house operator, a monitor operator, a sound editor, or a studio engineer.
