Music Performance I Specialisation

The Music Performance I specialisation is characterised by the concept of music — be it performance, composition, or musicology — as a research-led process that explores questions relevant to our understanding of what it means to be human and of who we are. The Music Performance I specialisation, available for a selected range of instruments depending on the availability of staff (contact the School of which instruments are currently available), must be undertaken in both solo and ensemble contexts, however solo recitals may include accompaniment and chamber music where appropriate and as approved.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the Music Performance I specialisation, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
  1. critically apply theoretical frameworks and research techniques to performance to help us understand national and international issues and problems;
  2. relate music performance to its wider cultural and societal context;
  3. critically evaluate ideas and develop creative solutions to complex problems; and
  4. communicate and debate complex issues through performance, as well as orally and in writing, using a variety of media.
