Ditto Online Release Masterclass

At our January Open Day, Ditto Music’s Sarah Hamilton gave some of our students an online Ditto Masterclass from Melbourne! She taught our students about digital distribution, touching on topics such as starting your own record label, the change of music formats through the ages, getting an artist’s music out into the world, important things to ask and watch out for when talking to an aggregator, issues artists face in the digital age, as well as tips and tricks when putting your music on the internet. You can watch the full Masterclass here:

National Music Academy was so honoured and proud to host Snarky Puppy band leader
Michael League to present a 90 minute masterclass on 11/4 at 6:00pm at the beautiful
Bar Petite Newcastle!

Michael is a 3 times Grammy award winner and has been nominated a further 4 times! The masterclass focussed on musically directing and managing a global touring, grammy award winning ensemble Snarky Puppy. He will also speak about Musicianship, Songwriting and the Music Industry.

Industry Masterclass

A professional in any field grows not only from study alone but by also seeking the experience and knowledge of those who lead in what they do.

Great musicians and artists always have a number of influences and teachers and that is why we offer our students the opportunity to gain valuable insight into aspects of their art that cannot possibly be fulfilled in a 30 minute one on one lesson.

No matter how amazing your one on one teacher is, an imperative part of improving your craft is to see how some of the best musicians, artists and industry experts think, approach music, and master their art.

Masterclasses are an integral and valuable part of music education which is why they are generally only accessible through colleges, conservatories and prestigious music institutes around the world.

This is why National Music Academy are proud to extend such an important resource to our students whereby they can gain authentic, first hand experience and instruction from Aria award winners to the countries top session musicians who will speak and perform exclusively for National Music Academy students.

Our interactive masterclasses allow attendees the opportunity to personally meet and ask our special guests questions as well as see an exclusive live performance in an intimate setting. This is certainly an experience and opportunity rarely available to music students in Newcastle.

Please see our last (and incredible) Katie Noonan Masterclass above.
