CUS30109 Certificate III in Music

RTO 30574 Suncoast Christian College

" It is a privilege to see students who are driven by a passion to play and perform music. " Ken Bowden, Music Teacher

Suncoast Christian College has delivered the Certificate III in Music for many years and is well known for producing job-ready students in the music industry. Students are able to develop their musical talents while completing a Nationally Recognised Qualification.

This course is targeted at students wanting to enter the music industry with a range of underpinning skills and knowledge in music performance. Students are able to develop skills in song writing, performance, accompaniment, improvisation, critical listen and career planning.

Students are also able to develop a working knowledge of the music industry, acquire practical knowledge of copyright and royalties, and learn to follow health, safety and security practices relevant to musical performance.

Range of Learning Styles

The Certificate III in Music has particular appeal to students who prefer to learn music by listening to their iPod or someone else play, and then imitate what they hear. Aural and kinetic learning styles are dominant learning styles used by students in this course. They may not be able to read music at all, but they play or sing with confidence and proficiency. The course is quite hands-on and practical; it utilises teamwork skills and offers a great learning opportunity for creative people.

Career Opportunities

The music industry offers an extensive and varied range of career opportunities including song writing, performance, music management, music promotions and music education. The intent of the course is to prepare students for a career in the music industry, and on completion of the course that they will have a mindset ready to embrace a professional career in music.

Pathways

Upon completion of the Certificate III in Music, students may choose to continue their studies in music, with the Diploma in Music or a University course in music.  This qualification enables students to achieve 8 credits towards the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) upon completion.

Course Organisation

The Certificate III in Music is delivered over Year 11 and 12 for two years duration. The course is integrated into the school timetable and involves a half day session once per week and block training days; 1 per term.
Specific units of competency delivered can be accessed through the trainer, Ken Bowden.

Student Selection

Students will be accepted into this course after a successful audition and interview.

The application will be assessed using the following selection criteria:

  1. Ability to play a musical instrument or sing with confidence and musicianship.
  2. Display musical expression and stylistic interpretation and performance skill.
  3. Show evidence of technical proficiency on the chosen instrument or voice.
  4. Career choices in the music industry.

Students will be expected to perform two contrasting musical pieces using instrument and/or voice. This will be done in audition with specialist music staff. A successful interview with the teacher is the other criteria for selection.

Musical Styles Covered in the Course

Most students undertaking the course favour popular and contemporary styles of music. Students are often playing and performing in rock bands in the class to meet the practical requirements of the course. This work develops valuable teamwork and ensemble experience, as musicians must learn to listen and perform with each other and also work together in a group environment. Students are not taught any particular style but are exposed to a broad range of musical genre to develop greater musical awareness and understanding of the music industry today.

They are encouraged to follow their own musical preferences and then develop the skills that will help them have a successful career in the music industry.

Fees

There are no fees for training and assessment tuition at Suncoast Christian College for Certificate III in Music.
