From 6pm to 8.30pm at the Institute’s state of the art Melbourne Campus in the CBD, this free event will offer potential students and their families a unique opportunity to meet and speak with staff, most of whom are also professionals working in the industry, as well as current students, about how AIM can help you move into highly sought-after careers in the music and entertainment industries.

The much-anticipated evening will also offer dynamic performances from some of Australia’s most respected and promising emerging musical talents. The AIM Information Evening will doubtless give aspiring musicians the confidence and means to make those wishes reality.

AIM ambassador and highly respected industry professional, John Foreman, will speak and perform on the night, along with renowned guitarist, YouTube sensation and recent AIM graduate, Sam Westphalen, who is taking his first steps on the international stage this year with a 15-date tour around China.

Former finalist on The Voice and AIM Alumni Josh Kyle, will take to the stage to perform a set of classic and contemporary jazz numbers in his own distinctive style. He will also talk about his own experiences as the new Coordinator for Contemporary Performance at AIM Melbourne.

With Trimester 2 applications now open, AIM’s Events & Recruitment Coordinator, Jody Millerchip, says the Information Evening is a great way for the public to find out first-hand about the diverse range of Diploma and Bachelor Courses that have recently been introduced at AIM Melbourne.

“We have three departments that will be represented on the night through live performances and entertainment, interactive presentations, campus tours, and talks with staff and students. These range from Composition & Music Production to Entertainment Management and Contemporary Performance.”

“The evening will showcase everything that AIM Melbourne has to offer – the talent and success of current and former students, the specialist knowledge and expertise of faculty members, and the newly renovated, state-of-the-art campus, which is nestled in the beating heart of Melbourne’s creative epicenter.”

Each department will be located in its own dedicated classroom so that potential students and their parents can talk with staff, ask specific questions and, if they choose, fill out on-the-spot applications to get their foot in the door sooner rather than later.

“This really is an event not-to-be-missed for anyone who is interested in pursuing a career in music and entertainment, and we look forward to delivering some great music, wonderful entertainment and informative insights on the night,” adds Millerchip.

The recent launch of AIM’s Melbourne campus is providing exciting new opportunities for students wanting to get into the music and entertainment industry. The Information Evening on May 1 will give the public a taste of the extraordinary education opportunities that AIM is offering in 2014 and beyond.
