Do what you love

Welcome to Music Valley

Imagine a place where musicians, artists and producers come together to learn, collaborate and make great music. Whether you’re learning to master your craft, recording your next single or ready to turn your passion into a career, your journey starts here.

Share your story & honour your calling

Music Valley was founded in 2009 and over a decade later, was re-named from Universal School of Music as our offerings evolved to meet the demands of our growing community. With education and training as our early core offering, our range of services expanded to include recording, music production, music collaboration as well as artist and career development.

Together, we are creating a new system to develop, train and produce working artists by creating new pathways for the modern musician.

Phase 1 – Master Your Craft

Becoming a musician begins with mastering your instrument, craft and skill. In Phase 1, each student works closely with their teacher or mentor to develop a series of customised objectives based on the Master Your Craft Framework.

Phase 2 – Record, Produce & Release

Write, record, produce & release your music, service or product to market. Collaborate with artists, songwriters, producers and create professional relationships to build your network and grow your audience.

Phase 3 – Go Pro

Make the transition from amateur to professional. Learn to sell and monetize your knowledge, skills, service and product through our series of professional development modularized training programs.

Become a Mentor

The Mentor Foundations program is the first training program in Australia, specifically designed for musicians ready to share their experience and knowledge with upcoming talent as a professional mentor. This 10 week immersive program will give you the essential skills, tools and framework that are necessary for the early stages of a professional mentoring relationship.
