Description

This is a practical course in music performance and presentation in collaborative settings. In this final collaborative music-making course, students work in two principal areas. The first consists of rehearsals and performances in one of a range of ensembles involving collaborative engagement with other performers, composers and creative producers. The second is a self-directed ensemble project. This may be in any format or genre, including live and internet-based formats, in classical, contemporary, jazz, pop, and experimental genres.

As part of the self-directed project, students will be required to maintain a critical reflective journal that explains and critiques the project process.
