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. All ensemble activities will subject to the approval of the course examiner. Students' progress in this course will be supervised by an on-campus lecturer at regular intervals throughout the semester through email and/or video conference.
In addition to developing knowledge and building technical skills, it is important for the contemporary musician to cultivate the capacity to work both independently and collaboratively to initiate performance opportunities and deliver innovative creative projects. This course offers students the chance to negotiate their own ensemble outcomes and begin cultivating the capacity to support their own and each other’s ongoing musical and career development. In addition to building essential technical skills and knowledge, these collaborative ensemble projects promote the development of key interpersonal skills, present students with important new perspectives, and facilitate key network building opportunities.
This course further develops the skills acquired through completion of MUI1001 and MUI1002 by encouraging students to begin to take greater initiative on collaborative projects. Over the course of the semester, students will create their own ensemble project together with stated performance outcomes. Under the guidance of teaching staff, students must not only perform in the ensemble, but co-ordinate projects, be directed by fellow students, identify key resources to support individual and project development, and critically reflect upon practice.
On successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- Develop and deliver an ensemble project that applies new and/or existing skills and knowledge;
- Identify and evaluate key resources to support the development and delivery of an ensemble project;
- Effectively interpret and communicate musical ideas (oral and written) with both other musicians and audiences;
- Work collaboratively and independently, take responsibility for, and critically reflect upon individual and group contributions to the development and delivery of the ensemble project.
