Welcome to the DMS Music Industry Training website.
With 24 years experience in delivering vocational music programs for the Ballarat Cluster of Secondary Schools, David Santamaria has a wealth of knowledge that teachers and students can access to improve the outcomes for the end of year study scores.
During this time, David has focused predominantly on delivering the Sound Production stream, but has also been a classroom music teacher for over 35 years. He has organised All-ages music events for most of this time in the Ballarat Live Scene at venues such as Hot Gossip, Bridge Inn, 21 Arms, Element Nightclub and Hop Temple. The Sound Production students have had the opportunity to get real-live experience in a work environment by operating the audio production equipment at these events.
In 2009, David teamed up with Kye Thomas to create Australia’s most effective RTO for auspicing VET Music in schools programs – The College of Sound & Music Production (COSAMP) and it is through COSAMP that schools will receive most support for their programs.
This website is set up to provide information and training support for the qualifications in the CUA Music Industry Training Package.
If teachers would like information about auspicing and access to a wealth of resources including student activities, an online interactive textbook and assessment tools, please contact Simon Imrei on the COSAMP hotline on 03 9592 4801 or visit the website at https://www.cosamp.com.au
