Gain the skills to market and distribute your music to a wider audience

Whether you are a graduate of North Metropolitan TAFE's Diploma of Music Industry (Music Business), a music manager, a self managed artist or a hobby musician, this skill set will help you access a wider audience for your music. Knowledge and skills gained will contextualise the distribution aspect of the music industry with a broader market building framework.

This course is suited to students who have relevant skills and knowledge developed by completing CUA50815 Diploma of Music Industry (Music Business) and for those who have industry experience but need to develop their technical skills.

  • Manage the distribution of music in both physical and digital formats
  • Manage distribution of products associated with the music
  • Design marketing campaigns 
  • Implement campaigns 
  • Analyse success of a campaign

As part of the requirements for this skill set you will need marketing resources, such as high resolution master audio files and print ready photos, which will either be pre-existing or will need to be developed outside of the classroom.


Training will be delivered over 8 x 3 hour sessions. Time will be allowed during a break in these sessions for you to be able to develop a plan and then build your release assets before distributing your material.

Course dates for 2021

The next course will run during Term 3 - dates to be confirmed.
