Students will refine the knowledge, competencies and skills necessary for music performance. Areas to be covered include advanced study of instrumental or vocal technique in order to cope with varied stylistic demands, and specialisation in all related aspects of music performance. Formative feedback in individual and group settings will be provided across the semester.
In order to contextualise their education within the best practices of local, national and international standards, students are expected to work competently and productively both alone and in groups. The subject involves participation in individual lessons, instrument/voice classes, performance class and/or assigned ensemble activities. In order to ensure the highest level of performance preparation, 100% attendance is expected.
To progress from Performance 5 into further Practical Music or Performance subjects:
- A subject result of 65% or greater is a prerequisite for MUSI30253 Performance 6
- A subject result of 50% or greater is a prerequisite for MUSI30251 Practical Music 6
- A subject result of 50% or lower: There is currently no further study option available in practical/performance studies. Students may complete the degree in the Music Studies major.
