About this Unit
Students will extend their performance skills acquired in Music Performance 1 through participating in three modularised workshops. The first two workshops will run in parallel with each other and will be rotated: module 1 will focus on free and notated improvisation; and module 2 will focus on choral performance. Module 3 will extend the skills of reading and arranging music in students’ preferred performing media (voice or instrument). In this module, they will perform set technical tasks (such as scales and arpeggios), adding to the skills acquired in Music Performance 1 and, continuing to work in small groups, they will arrange and perform one set piece of music from a basic notated score, and choose, arrange and perform another piece that is different from the music performed in Music Performance 1. They will perform one piece chosen from modules 1, 2, or 3 in a public venue on campus. The unit will also introduce music business skills, such as how to publicise and mount a performance, and how to upload a sample of work to YouTube.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students with portable musical instruments (guitars, woodwind instruments, brass instruments, etc) are required to bring them to this unit as well as their own music.
