Special requirements for ONLINE STUDENTS ONLY: Students are required to join or form an ensemble in their local area to fulfil the ensemble component of this course. Please contact the course examiner for more information. Individual instrumental and vocal tuition is not provided in this course, however, students are encouraged (but not required) to work with a teacher in their local area. Students' progress on their instrument will be supervised by an on-campus lecturer at regular intervals throughout the semester through ePortfolio.
Collaboration is of central importance to most music making. In this course students continue to learn practical skills in musical technique and communication, particularly as they relate to contemporary ensemble playing. Students participate in collaborative activities aimed at further developing prototype behaviours of a functional musician, including musicianship, versatility, adaptability, leadership, reliability, interpersonal skills and self-reflection. Students learn to further develop and deliver their own projects to a high level.
This course further develops the skills acquired through completion of MUI2004 by requiring students to work both independently and collaboratively on a project. On-campus students will contribute towards a project co-ordinated by staff. These students learn to not only self-initiate but take direction from project co-ordinators. Staff will act as project co-ordinators and musical directors. Online students will continue with their ensemble activities from MUI2004 or propose a new ensemble activity.
On completion of this course students will have:
- apply knowledge, technical and performance skills in a contemporary ensemble setting;
- interpret and communicate musical ideas (oral and written) at a high level effectively with both other musicians and audiences;
- at a high level, work collaboratively and organise activities and projects with staff and peers;
- gain a high level of understanding of the logistics of planning and executing musical projects and operate as part of a project team;
- work independently at a high level, take responsibility for, and reflect upon individual learning which contributes to the effectiveness of the ensemble and project outcomes.
