This course involves fundamental music studies in a second area of specialisation for students who are expected to be concurrently enrolled in Principal Study. They can study an additional instrument or composition, creative production or music research (provided that it is a different area of study from their principal study and in the case of creative production, they are not enrolled in creative production as an elective). Entrance in to the double major is subject to approval by the HOS. Repertoires from diverse styles can be studied such as classical, contemporary, popular, jazz and world music. This course offers students the opportunity for intensive development of their individual skills, in styles and modes of presentation of their choice, with a focus on the use of technology in their practice.
At the completion of this course students will demonstrate, within their chosen area of study:
- Developed level of implementation of fundamentals of technique applicable to the chosen practice, genres and styles, where appropriate e.g: production standards, control of compositional language, physiological issues and creative use of media.
- Developed capacity for expression and interpretation as appropriate to their chosen practice, e.g: improvisation, analytical and creative approaches to composition and performance and/or innovative use of technology.
- Developed understanding of their practice/work routine and evidence of its implementation.
- Ability to incorporate technology into their practice.
- Continued development of confidence and positive attitude in presenting work, including preparation, readiness, managing anxiety and engaging with music-makers, audiences and other collaborators
- Secure level of critical thinking and research in the student's work.
The syllabi for this course (for each instrument, voice, creative production and composition) have been designed to provide the student with a structured yet flexible framework within which to develop their skills. Diversity of styles is encouraged. The course outline and related syllabi contain details of course requirements. Students will be assessed throughout the semester according to a list of criteria. These requirements will vary depending on the major strand studied.
- Students will receive individual and/or group classes and technical classes as appropriate to their chosen practice.
- Students will participate in performance practice and/or presentation classes.
