Campus of Performing Arts (COPA) was founded in 2003 and is a contemporary music college with campuses in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban. Our courses are taught by trained facilitators who are also music industry specialists and/or professional musicians, giving our students access to one of the most rounded and intensive practical programmes currently available anywhere in the world.

COPA also offers a short course in Lighting, and recently added short courses in Game Development to its offering, with a full-time qualification in this field on the horizon.
Students are not only trained in their chosen major, but also in modules like Music Business and Music Culture to ensure that they are well prepared for a successful career in the music industry.
