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. This course brings to culmination all the fundamental music studies, exploration into various genres and developing stylistic focus of previous semesters in the form of a specialist performance/creative or research project. This final semester of the B.MUS is therefore more open in scope (subject to approval), giving students the opportunity to prepare for a professional career after graduation and possibly Honours.
|Objectives||At the completion of this course students will demonstrate, within their chosen area of study:
- Ability to focus sophisticated techniques, as applicable, in the realisation of a creative and/or performance project specific to chosen practice.
- Evidence of well-developed individual style and highly sensitive expressive control in the realisation of the creative component of the project.
- Understanding of their practice/work routine and evidence of its implementation at an advanced level of efficiency.
- Ability to communicate via their particular medium at a professional level through diverse means, which may include technology.
- Professional presentation at all levels in a performance/creative project or portfolio.
- The ability to focus critical thinking and the research process in a creative/performance project and/or portfolio.
|Content||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.
