QUT Music Society

About Us

The QUT Music Society is a committed group of both music makers and lovers coming together to rehearse, perform and build connections all based around the power of one thing – music.

Jam Sessions

Jam sessions are the QUT Music Society’s brand new initiative, bringing together players in a casual setting to enjoy music-making. A combination of students from a variety of faculties and non-QUT students, our Jam Sessions are a place for you to chill while playing and listening to great music. Whether you play guitar, piano, saxophone, cello or sing, everyone can come along.


QUT Music Society hosts a variety of events each year, including:

  • Welcome Parties
  • Trivia Nights
  • Live Music Nights
  • Karaoke
  • Weekly Online Games Nights
  • and more!
