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.
