Jazz Performance

Recognised as one of the strongest jazz courses in the southern hemisphere, this major produces many nationally and internationally renowned jazz musicians. The strength of the major lies in the focus on performance outcomes, and all educational units are based around developing these skills. Students have the option of pursuing a performance or arranging stream in their final year, culminating in a professional recital.

All students participate in many varied ensembles, from big bands to jazz trios and everything in between. The major also has a visiting artist program that is second to none, and prides itself on the depth of professional knowledge that is on offer to students year round.
