Positives: Networking with other students and being able to join in and collaborate with others. Instruments and practice room facilities are really useful and there is always availability. Tech staff know what they are doing when maintaining equipment, setting up for performances and helping you/answering your questions

Negatives: Depending on your lecturer, the lectures and tutorials can be very time consuming and very boring. Sometimes lecturers go off in a tangent and don’t cover all the content, leaving you on your own to catch up with the course. Tutorial rooms are small and only hold a certain amount of people, meaning sessions can run into the late afternoon and take up your entire days worth of time. Only recommend taking this course if you are prepared for the commitment

My advice to future students is: The parking has to be paid for.

Positives: Lots of performance opportunities. There are opportunities to sub-major in various aspects of music, such as musicology, performance, composition and sound technology. The facilities are industry standard.

Negatives: UWS Music does not have the reputation of the Con or UNSW. There could be more opportunities to link closely to the Master of Teaching.

My advice to future students is: Use your electives to learn from subjects outside of music. Use the course to make contacts with other musicians.
