About this Unit
In 2018 this unit replaced by 102553 - Music Performance 1. In this unit, students will expand their performance skills through workshops involving rehearsal and performance. They will be taught how to improvise in a variety of musical styles and, in large and small group combinations, they will learn the art of spontaneous music-making. They will compose a substantial piece in collaboration with each other. Through a series of lectures, students will be introduced to various approaches to improvisation and other modes of musical performance from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The lectures will draw on the repertoires of popular, experimental, Western and non-Western musics. Students will undertake a written and analytical task to contextualise the material from lectures and workshops

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.
