In a highly competitive industry, respectable qualifications and training, extensive field experience and a strong network are essential to improve your future career prospects in music. At AMPA, we provide an environment with all the above tools for you to maximise opportunities and reach your ultimate goal.

AMPA’s undergraduate music degrees are designed to comprehensively train talented musicians (performers, composers and creators) enabling them to enter the music industry one step ahead of the crowd.

AMPA undergrads can choose to focus on one of four focus areas in their degree.

Unlike many institutions in Australia, AMPA remains focused on individual, one-to-one learning. This means that music students are entitled to receive a 60-minute lesson per week as part of their Principal Study unit, along with an additional 30-minute lesson as part of the Second Study. The option of taking a Second Study is particularly unique to AMPA, and a valuable tool for students with more than one skill eg. guitar/voice or singer/songwriter.

  • Contemporary / Jazz Performance
  • Classical Performance
  • Composition/Creative Music Technology
  • Music Theatre

  • Audition/Interview/Assessment

Additional Information

Piano, keyboard, amps, drum kit, and sound system for backing tracks are provided for all auditions. Guitarists should bring their own leads, and drummers their own sticks and brushes. Applicants must provide their own backing track and accompanist if required.

At the audition, applicants will have the opportunity to tour the campus if they have not already visited AMPA for an Open Day or other events. Please ask at reception on the day if you’d like a tour.

International & Interstate Applicants

Interstate and international applicants will be invited to submit their audition via video, or by alternative arrangement, as discussed with the Student Services Officer once their application has been received.

International applicants who come from non-English speaking backgrounds must provide evidence that they have achieved a minimum IELTS score of 5.5 (for associate degrees) through to 6.5 (for postgraduate degrees).
