Unit of study_

Chinese Music Ensemble 1 - PERF2604

Year - 2020

In this unit students will receive small group tuition on one traditional Chinese musical instrument (provided on loan). They will be guided in playing the instrument in an ensemble, and will participate in ensemble performances. Through seminar-style discussions of four selected readings and of at least one concert of Chinese music attended during the semester, they will begin to develop a broad understanding of Chinese traditional musical instruments, ensembles, and musical structures, thus enhancing their knowledge of China's thousands of years of recorded musical history and its extensive and diverse musical traditions.

1 x 2hr group lesson/seminar per week; 1 x 1hr tutti rehearsal per week in weeks 6-12 (some additional rehearsals may be arranged prior to concerts).

Written Summaries (20%); Concert report (15%); Instrument Study and Performance (65%)
