I'm Ivan, musician from Croatia. Didn't make any real steps, still looking my options, except contacting (and paying) Australian agency. I got a phone call and was horrified with the amount of money they said it takes to accelerate the process. It takes about a year here to save it. I have full time (but substitute job) here and Masters degree I would very much like to use in Australia. I would also like to improve my skills which are not so common. Would like to hear your opinions.

GSM Australia agency. I don't think all the fees are fraud. They seem legit. And it is not all the agency payment that kept me waiting. Insurance money, plane tickets, rent money... I have to cover my life for the first month. And I am not easy on debts. Also- none of the job openings I applied ever answered. So- it is in the air untill I actually come.

No. Trying to gather some money for that step. It takes much longer to earn that in Croatia. I believe I will have enough to apply again in a month or 2.

in which degree you have master degree ivan
Music theory (harmony, polyphony and counterpoint being main subjects). Qualified to teach musical forms, solfeggio, conducting, composition... and I am good at it. Both theory and practice. My pupils have so far 100% success with entrance exams to high school or academy. I also conduct and my choir has bunch of rewards. Not to brag, just want to try myself somewhere more competitive.
