Music Performance - MUSC2612

Year - 2020

This unit of study offers an integrated approach to live music performance that includes practical and research components. Students participate in solo and ensemble situations in weekly in-class concerts. Constructive feedback by peers is a significant part of this course and participants trace their own development in weekly reflective journals. Music of all genres (including classical, experimental, popular, jazz and world music), instruments and voice types are accepted, and collaboration across musical traditions is strongly encouraged. A number of seminars dealing with specific key issues are interspersed throughout this unit of study, including performance stress, technical and psychological preparation, ensemble communication and audience perception. Auditions are held during O-Week. This audition consists of two contrasting pieces and a short interview. To be offered an audition, please enroll in this unit of study before O-Week and you will be automatically contacted with all relevant details. If you enroll during or after O-Week, please email the unit coordinator to arrange an alternative audition time.
