The Music for Colleges Program is for ACT year 11 and 12 students interested in undertaking advanced classical or jazz music as an H-course in addition to studies in their home college. Audition applications for 2019 will open in September 2018. If you wish to be considered for a late audtion, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, this program is not available to international students.
Eligibility: ACT year 11 and 12 students.
Students are carefully selected through a process of auditions and interviews which varies according to the age and the musical training of the applicants. Auditions are focused on assessing ability levels for grouping and ensemble placements.
As this program is accredited by the BSSS, students enrol in this program as part of their year 11/12 package and can choose to take this course as either a minor (1 year) or a major (2 years). This program is available to students enrolled at any college in the ACT that follows the ACT education system. It is recommended that students also participate in the music program at their home college.
Please note that successful applicants enrol for one year at a time and re-enrolment is subject to satisfactory attendance with progress determined by the relevant area.
Students are expected to have an instrumental proficiency level of Grade 7 AMEB for piano and strings. A high level of proficiency is also expected in wind, brass, guitar and percussion students, and will be assessed on a case by case basis. Vocal students will be expected to demonstrate their potential through carefully chosen repertoire which matches their current level of vocal maturity.
All students are expected to have completed the work for an AMEB Grade 4 in either Theory, Musicianship or Music Craft. The Open School of Music can provide you with a list of tutors who can assist with your preparation.
