The four units in the Music Performance sub major offer students opportunities to expand their practice in several ways. Through group rehearsal and performance, and engaging as composer-performer, two units explore musical collaboration as performer-performer, and as performer-composer. In self-devised projects in which the student is the featured performer, two units encourage engagement with theatrical, multimedia and/or electroacoustic elements and an investigation of one’s identity as a performer. Aspects of onstage skills, performance persona and audience communication are addressed. Units require writing about performance through concert reviewing, project proposals, reflective and contextual essays. Students receive feedback in all units, during the rehearsal process.
