If you are serious about studying music, then JMI is the place for you. We feel that by delivering a degree program through an entirely jazz curriculum, our students learn more about how Western harmony works and how to apply stylistic nuance to perform any genre of contemporary music. Studying at JMI will make you a flexible, skilful and creative all-round musician.
We often get these questions about studying at JMI:
Q: Is the Bachelor degree recognised at other places?
A: Yes, our Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance is recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and is accredited by Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). This means that this degree is fully recognised throughout Australia in the same way as a degree from a University.
Q: Will I get private lessons when studying the degree at JMI?
A: Yes, at JMI we are committed to the value of having private one-on-one lessons with an expert teacher on your instrument. So as part of the Bachelor program, each student gets a 1-hour one-on-one lesson with their instrument teacher every teaching week of semester. This is something that you can’t get guaranteed at most other providers.
Q: Do I have to pay all fees upfront? Why can’t I get HECS-HELP?
A: You don’t have to pay all your fees upfront. As JMI is a private Higher Education Provider, we are not eligible to offer Commonwealth-supported places – only public universities are able to offer HECS-HELP. However domestic JMI students are able to access FEE-HELP, which is a similar loan scheme by the Government to assist in paying tuition fees. More information is available here
Q: Why is JMI’s course so much more expensive than University degrees?
A: JMI’s Bachelor course is actually cheaper than most providers. Universities are able to offer Commonwealth-supported places which means that the fees charged are subsidised considerably by the Government. This can result in up to 66% of fees being subsidised. So the HECS-HELP debt you incur at a University is significantly less than what the University actually charges for full fee paying students. This makes the fees look considerably cheaper at Universities.
