Within this course students will be provided with opportunities to develop skills in music performance. Each Performance course will require students to demonstrate an increasing proficiency in both solo and ensemble music performance. Styles covered can include classical, jazz, contemporary and folk/world music.  Learning and teaching activities will include lectures, small group teaching and ensemble work. Students will be able to access one-to-one tuition, master classes or conferences with School of Music Staff or through a Performance Development Allowance. All students wishing to enrol in these courses must have successfully completed an audition.

Learning Outcomes

Upon Successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. demonstrate a high level of accomplishment, command of instrumental/vocal technique and attention to performance accuracy with a highly distinctive emphasis on the artistic outcome in the music performed.
  2. demonstrate a professional degree of control, subtlety of musical expression and awareness of musical textures, structure, style, character and emotional intent of the music being performed.
  3. demonstrate a clear emphasis on the artistic outcome of a performance, with expression of a more original voice including the establishment of an individual style.
  4. demonstrate the ability to propose a research question and explore the question leading to a performance outcome. The student will be able to explain this process and outcome orally or in writing.

Indicative Assessment

Precise details of assessment requirements and criteria vary according to the nature of the instrument / voice, the needs of the student, and the current performance activities of the School.
The Performance Convenor will determine these individual details as appropriate, utilising performance opportunities within the School or in approved community and professional contexts.

A typical pattern of performance assessment activities consists of:

  • Recital assessment appropriate to genre (50%) learning outcomes [1,2,3]
  • Ensemble performance assessment (20%) learning outcomes [1,2,3]
  • Concert practice assessment (20%) learning outcomes [1,2,3]
  • Written / oral research component assessment (10%) learning outcomes [4]

Performance assessment will cover all learning outcomes.
