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. The course offers students the opportunity for intensive development of their individual skills, in styles and modes of presentation of their choice, which may invlove technology, with a focus developing their individual approach to music-making and thinking.
|Objectives||At the completion of this course students will demonstrate, within their chosen area of study:
