Most BMus students will take a major or minor in Performance. These courses allow students to refine their skills in the understanding, interpretation and execution of solo and ensemble performance. Students may elect to specialise in a particular genre - classical, jazz, contemporary or folk and world musics - or combine genres. In addition to classes, masterclasses, rehearsals and workshops at the ANU School of Music, Performance students have access to weekly individual instrumental lessons with a teacher (or equivalent summer schools or intensive external tuition). Access to Performance courses is by audition.

Learning Outcomes

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

  1. demonstrate the specialist technical and cognitive skills involved in music performance; and
  2. critically reflect on creative decisions that emerge from their practice led research.
