This unit allows students to further develop proficiency on one Chinese instrument in both small group and ensemble settings, and to continue to perform with the ensemble. Students will gain a deeper understanding of Chinese music by taking a more independent role in performing Chinese music, and completing their own Chinese music research project. This unit will provide students with a further opportunity to study non-Western musical performance and to have further engagement with analytical and conceptual approaches drawn from ethnomusicology. It will incorporate and further develop the performance skills that students have gained in previous study in earlier units, and promote the creation of a comprehensive performance-research based ethnomusicology pathway at the undergraduate level. It will help students from all specializations develop greater understanding of musical cultures outside the Western musical mainstream that usually forms the primary focus of their Conservatorium music studies. Some students taking this ensemble may be encouraged to undertake musicology units in the ethnomusicology pathway, or to consider honours proposals that have a focus on non-Western music.
