AGME was founded in 1969 as a music and speech examination body to serve the unique needs of the Australian creative landscape. Originally part of the London College of Music, in 1986 preparations started to follow our parent organisation and launch a higher education program which culminated in the Bachelor of Music degree being accredited in 2002. From 2002, the Public Examinations, Vocational Education and Higher Education departments were managed through a single entity. In light of the growth and unique needs of the Public Examinations and Higher Education, in 2022, the VET program closed so that resources could be better utilised in these areas and in 2023, Higher Education became an independent organisation (AGE Pty Ltd) with governance better suited to tertiary study.
We are “Teachers-Teaching-Teachers” and are proud to celebrate and empower music and speech teachers through life-long learning and providing practical, flexible and affordable teaching syllabi and examinations.
AGME provides opportunities for both domestic and offshore students from beginner to advanced levels, including an internationally accessible degree program.
Specialising in online/distance learning for almost two decades, with a focus on pragmatic career skills, our fully accredited Bachelor of Music sets up to achieve their music goals with specialisations in Instrumental/Vocal Teaching, Performance or Composition.
