The Creative Musicianship courses are a series of six courses integrating a broad suite of skills that underpins the study of the various languages of music - classical, jazz, contemporary and cross-cultural. Creative Musicianship 6 is intended for students interested in further developing their understanding of, and skills in, composition, improvisation and the creative use of musical language. It develops advanced skills and concepts in these areas through a mixture of creative and analytical work.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate a solid compositional proficiency in one or more styles (classical, jazz, contemporary), or a high level of knowledge of improvisation techniques across a variety of harmonic and rhythmic settings and forms.
2. Critically consider relevant compositional issues in highly developed aesthetic and technical terms, or apply highly developed improvisational techniques to a chosen instrument.
3. Present works professionally using appropriate instrumentation and orchestration techniques, and produce work according to deadlines that demonstrates an awareness of professional industry standards.
4. Make and justify the creative decisions made in the course of compositional, arrangement and/or improvisational activities.
Indicative AssessmentA portfolio of original work (80%) [learning outcomes 1-3]
A written exegesis (c. 1000 words) describing the rationale for the creative decisions made (20%) [learning outcomes 3-4]
During Semester 1, 2014, the ANU will be piloting the use of the text matching software 'Turnitin'. Several courses have been selected to pilot Turnitin during the Semester 1 teaching period. The ANU is using Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin will not be mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
