Description

Advanced performance on an instrument or voice. Either: two significant recitals (solo and/or ensemble) and programme notes. Or: one CD (45-50 mins) which may include existing compositions, originals and/or arrangements, together with supporting documentation.

The aim of this course is to undertake advanced study in, and gain advanced performance skills in an instrument or voice.

Students will attend weekly individual lessons of 1.5 hours, possibly also performance classes and/or ensemble training, in an instrument or voice.

Pre-requisites

MUSI473 or equivalent, and approval of Head of Music

Course Coordinator

Glenda Keam

Individual Performance Teachers are assigned to each student.

Assessment

Recital Option

(i)  Mid-year recital of up to 50 minutes duration which includes one major work and also demonstrates a range of styles appropriate for the instrument/voice.

(ii)  Full recital programme of up to 60 minutes duration of material different from the mid-year recital, which includes one major work and also demonstrates a range of styles appropriate for the instrument/voice.

Programme notes and brief biographical notes of the performers are to be provided to the Community Engagement Coordinator at least two weeks prior to each recital.  Evidence of planning and leadership will also be considered in the marking process, together with associated documentation.

CD/Recording Option

Preparation of a CD of 45–50 minutes duration that is largely the result of 'live' takes (although a small amount of editing and enhancing is possible).l

Written documentation of approximately 1500–2000 words is to be provided at the time of submission, outlining the content of the CD and reflecting on the process of its making.  This will include information about the roles each musician played in the devising and performing of the material, and may also include musical examples such as any lead sheets used in the process.  Evidence of planning and leadership will also be considered in the marking process, together with the associated documentation.

In recording and preparing the CD, each student is entitled to up to 3 x 3hr recording sessions (with a small amount of set-up assistance from a staff member) and up to two hours with the School of Music's technician - possibly also with the tutor present - to edit the 'takes' and construct the finished product.

The assessment will be undertaken by an external examiner and moderated by a member of the School of Music staff.  The tutor will normally be present at the assessment meeting, or the performance and post-performance discussion, but will not take part in deciding the grade.

PLEASE NOTE:
1.  Music performance courses are not eligible for aegrotat consideration.
2.  Private video recordings of examination recitals will not be permitted.
