The Bachelor of Creative Arts and Industries (Music) provides the intensive personalised training required for professional recognition within the music industry. The course offers two principal pathways of study: a Classical Music Specialisation or a Contemporary Music Specialisation. A third pathway is also offered as a combination of the two. This flexible course allows students to choose suites of study that best accommodate their individual career pathway. A close partnership with the Darwin Symphony Orchestra, the Darwin Festival and the Centre for Youth and Community Music provides a challenging and exciting environment in which to learn music and gain experience in community-based musical events. CDU's innovative music tuition and collaboration lab provide opportunity to access tuition, shared performance and master classes offered elsewhere nationally and internationally.
The Bachelor of Creative Arts and Industries (Music) course is part of a suite of professional creative courses available through Charles Darwin University and enables students to also take suites of study from the creative study options in New Media Design, Visual Arts and Communications. Within each of these discipline pathways, there are alternative study plans that allow a student to explore a particular strength.
