The Grove Studios Academy has taken a holistic approach to the CUA50815 Diploma of Music Industry (Sound Production) course by dividing the course into three 10 week and one 11-week terms. We have developed our units that allows for a focus on the fundamentals of the audio industry.
Designed to flow on from the CUA50815 Diploma of Music Industry (Sound Production) course, the CUA60515 Advanced Diploma of Music Industry focuses on taking fundamental skills and developing them into advanced creative tools. The Advanced Diploma is less about classroom based assessments and instead requires students to complete their own works in their own time. The freedom for students to do what they want is also increased with added flexibility to assessment outlines and self paced achievement.
Similar to the Diploma, the Advanced Diploma treats each term as a focus for different disciplines.
The Advanced Diploma of Music Industry (Sound Production) Course operates for six months, two days a week over one 10 week and one 11-week terms.
This course involves both scheduled classroom-learning activities and simulated industry-based training and assessment. The program is delivered using trainer-led, face-to-face learning in a classroom setting, combined with recording studio practical tasks and self-paced study. The course will provide learners with skills and knowledge required to further their abilities and career opportunities in the areas of Music and Sound Production.
Training is delivered in a face-to-face classroom based delivery (2 days a week) which is trainer led, combined with self-paced activities. Students will also need to prepare work in their own time in response to assessment tasks. These include scenario responses, projects, observations, portfolio responses, research tasks and presentation activities. Written learning activities will reinforce theoretical knowledge and skills will be practised in the studio where learning will be placed into context.
The Grove Studios Academy offers recognition of prior learning and recognises the outcomes issued by other RTOs. If you have prior learning or hold current competency, let us know during your enrolment.
