Julian Black
Bachelor of Music graduate

Julian moved from Sydney to study his Bachelor of Music at UTAS. In Hobart, he discovered how widely encouraged the arts scene is, met many talented musicians, and began accumulating a large portfolio giving him a range of pathways to pursue.

Share the stage with the world's best

Here, in Tasmania, the lifestyle and creative culture is the ideal environment to flourish as an artist. Tasmania has exploded onto the world stage as an artistic and cultural hot-spot and the Bachelor of Music degree places you at the centre. The Classical program maintains direct links to the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, with many of their musicians working as tutors and musical coordinators with the Conservatorium of Music, together with the Tasmanian Youth Orchestra. The Contemporary program collaborates with numerous performance and other significant musical events and creative initiatives, including MONA, MOFO, DARK MOFO, and the Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts.

Join the Conservatorium's flagship ensembles

The Southern Gospel Choir (SGC) is unique in Australia. Their very contemporary sound draws on the grooves and harmonic structures of jazz, funk, soul, house and hip-hop. Simultaneously, the choir also maintains the heart and soul of traditional gospel, through beautiful and powerful melodies and vocal arrangements, and the irrepressible, uncontainable joy that is gospel music. The Southern Gospel Choir is internationally acclaimed, and has worked with many prominent gospel artists including Myron Butler, Kirk Franklin, Horace Clarence Boyer, Eric Dozier and Take 6.

The Australian International Symphony Orchestra Institute (AISOI) is firmly acknowledged as one of the most innovative and professionally structured orchestral training schools in the country. The two weeks of intensive rehearsals, tutorials and concerts are carefully planned to simulate the schedule that would be followed by a professional orchestra. Our tutors, all of whom have distinguished orchestral careers, are on hand to offer advice and guidance throughout the institute. The choir has also been nominated for an ARIA award.

Renowned violinist Jan Sedivka was one of Australia's most influential and innovative music teachers, making an immeasurable impact on many musicians throughout his life. The Jan Sedivka Camerata was formed in 2009 to pay tribute and keep his legacy alive. Since its formation, the Camerata has performed regularly at the Conservatorium of Music and undertaken a number of successful tours of Tasmania. In 2011, the Camerata gave an online streaming performance which received acclaim from many countries including China, the USA, Japan and the UK.
