This course offers a variety of chamber ensemble performance experiences in music. Performing in an ensemble can only be learned through actually participating in an ensemble, and the absence of an ensemble member has a negative impact on the ensemble experience. As such, in order to pass this course students must, unless they have a relevant medical certificate,  attend and participate in at least 80% of ensemble rehearsal time in order to pass this course.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. understand at a professional level the techniques, practice habits, musical and stylistic knowledge of the chosen ensemble;
  2. demonstrate at a professional level a broad range of skills in ensemble performance, listening, and interpretation; and
  3. critically analyse methods of balancing team skills and leadership in both rehearsal and performance.

Other Information

Please note: There will be fixed rehearsal contact times for some ensembles; others will rehearse intensively prior to performance. Students are cautioned to check the detailed timetable for the ensembles they will be participating in prior to confirming their enrolment.
