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.
Operating as a professional musician requires a detailed working knowledge of a range of specific performance contexts and of the impact that these contexts can have on the way musicians prepare for and navigate performance outcomes. For example, performing in a recording studio, on stage, or for live radio or television all employ distinct approaches and specific workflows. This course offers students a chance to work with music staff to identify and model an appropriate context to situate their ensemble project, giving them the opportunity to develop industry specific knowledge and experience, while continuing to build the practical and interpersonal skills essential for a career in music.
This course further develops the skills acquired through completion of MUI2003 by requiring students to work both independently and collaboratively on a project. Under the guidance of teaching staff, students will identify a relevant industry specific performance outcome, and design and develop an ensemble project that explores music performance in that specific context. Students must not only perform in the ensemble, but co-ordinate projects, be directed by fellow students and staff, identify key resources to support individual and project development, and critically reflect upon all relevant processes and outcomes.
On successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- Evaluate, adapt and apply instrument and ensemble specific knowledge, technical and performance skills in a specific contemporary ensemble setting;
- Identify and evaluate key resources to support the development and delivery of a specific ensemble project;
- Develop and deliver an ensemble performance that models professional workflows;
- Effectively interpret and communicate complex musical ideas (oral and written) with both other musicians and audience;
- Work collaboratively and independently, take responsibility for, and critically reflect upon individual and group contributions to the development and delivery of the ensemble project.
