Why study music and sound at QUT?QUT's music course prepares aspiring musicians to adapt to the rapidly changing music industry. Music students are encouraged to create works across musical boundaries and strike out in bold new directions.
If production is your passion, you will focus on creating new music using songwriting, studio recording, sequencing, digital processing and writing for voices with acoustic and electro-acoustic instruments. If you are interested in performance you can focus on developing your unique performance style, such as new work, using digital technology, new interpretations of repertoire, and gain experience performing in a recording studio environment.
QUT's Bachelor of Music is the only Brisbane-based music degree which focuses on contemporary music.
Our teaching staff have professional links with:
- Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR)
- Arts Queensland
- Ellaways Music

Music graduates work in live, recording and multimedia environments, as performers, producers, composers, developers of music software and games, DJ's and music coaches.
If taken in conjunction with a Graduate Diploma in Senior Years you can also become a qualified teacher. Sound design graduates work as sound designers, sound editors and mixers for film and television, Web applications and games.
Many are also DJs, electronic musicians, recording engineers, producers and developers of music software and educators. There are also pathways available for honours and professional or research postgraduate studies.
