Professional Outcomes

Tabor’s Bachelor of Music will enable those with a demonstrated capacity in a range of musical performance styles to work professionally within music industries and/or as instrumental music instructors within schools.

This course is designed with a holistic approach to music and musical performance, so students can enter the industry with early-career professional skills in a wide variety of areas, such as performance, sound tech production, music theatre, composition and song-writing, theory, performing arts, and more.
