Positives: The course allows for hands on experience whether it be through classes like advocacy where you’re taught how to approach court matters, or also through programs with the magistrates court there is the option to learn about the career on the job. There is a lot of social aspects as well such as yearly balls, bbqs and much more

Negatives: The university can be quiet slow at responding to issues, responding with results and now bring in the block placement learning

My advice to future students is: I would say it’s a very hard course however if you keep up to date with assignment and reading you’ll be able to do well. And also to put yourself up for these situations

Positives: I find this course very chill, there’s no majorly overwhelming assessments or essays and the content itself is very interesting if you’re into psychology. There is also a lot of help from the tutors, they are there whenever you need them for any question big or small.

Negatives: There aren’t many negative aspects of my course except maybe when we receive assignments and they are due within a couple days or sometimes the next day, although, these assignments are not very difficult so it’s not that bad, only if you have a busy schedule I guess.

My advice to future students is: Be sure to choose a course that you’re interested in! It makes the work so much easier if you’re engaged with it, I know so many people who have chosen a course in a field for the purpose of that potential career making them lots of money, only for them to quit their course after the first year and change into another. In saying that, of course there’s nothing wrong with exploring different options but I don’t think you should choose a course you know that you’re not at all interested in besides the potential income from working in that field.

Positives: I found many parts of this course to be rather interesting and mind stimulating. As someone who mainly plays rock music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, I really enjoyed the research and assignments of artists such as David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Billy Idol, and The Beatles. This research gave us an inner depth and understanding of what makes a song flow with the correct use of chord progressions, emotion and unique style, which gives each artist their unique, recognized sound. We were also taught how to present ourselves on stage, setting, up along with the basics of sound engineering and using recording programs and live studios to record an entire song track. A great depth of musical theory was also a massive benefit and very thoroughly explained in detail. Overall, the instructors did a great job at directing an audience and making sure each individual student was provided with all the help needed. This was a very creative laid-back environment with no pressure and ample time to complete assignments and learn songs.

Cons: The following year going into the second year of the Bachelor of Music, I found it to be quite a transition from the Advanced Diploma. Firstly, the instructors were versatile when it came to many genres of music but I found it to be very Jazz, Samba and Blues orientated. I appreciate all genres of music and try to absorb anything in order to enhance my knowledge and music ability. The Bachelor of Music was a time for everyone to show off their individual selves and their abilities. This included their choice of song and genre. For someone who loves rock n roll, especially the glam stuff from the 80’s… expect to be ridiculed by the jazz-orientated assessors. No matter how much effort I put into my performances, none of them were assessed fairly due to the decline of my favorite music. They were too caught up laughing and whispering at each other.

The 1980’s was one of the best eras for music, especially for keyboardists and vocalists myself. A lot of the elements of classical music had influenced so many artists, especially Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force. The assessors should have spent more time assessing me correctly instead of laugh about how “daggy” the 80s rock scene was. Mind you, they also asked if they will be getting paid extra to assess me.

I did have a habit of wearing my David Lee Roth T-shirt with colourful tights. As silly or unusual I may have seemed, the minority should NEVER be discriminated against, especially when the assessors are the obstacle rather than a cheeky fellow student. Some people need to get their act together and understand that everyone has their own taste in clothing and music and this behavior is unacceptable.

To conclude my review of what was one of the best experiences/ and the most discouraging to the point of wanting to put an axe to my piano for good, The Advanced Diploma was a good one, and if you are like me and want to continue exploring rock n roll music, please don’t let the laughter make you feel you should give up. I may have quit my Bachelor but that hadn’t stopped me continuing to perform live shows in Melbourne, feature in a movie and play in front of Peter Criss former drummer of Kiss. Good luck.
