Music Curriculum 2 Extension - EDMT5703

Year - 2020

Informed by theory and research, this Unit takes a practical approach to the development of ensemble skills in group vocal and instrumental training and conducting and its place in school and community settings. This Unit provides students with an appreciation and understanding of the mechanics of conducting through practical implementation, and equips them to demonstrate initial levels of competence at using the skills required for effective choral/vocal group and instrumental conducting.

This Unit of Study is taught in two discrete parts, with separate specialist lecturers. Instrumental pedagogy is taught in 3-hour workshop sessions per week for 6 weeks, delivered over weeks 1 and 2 and weeks 10-13. Vocal group pedagogy is taught in 2-hour sessions, delivered over weeks 1-4 and 10-13, with an extra 2 hour practice workshop before assessment in week 13.
