Music performance requires a significant amount of time spent in regular practice in both solo and group settings. Ensemble work is an important and complementary activity to develop professional performance skill: all students in the performance major will be assigned to Conservatorium ensembles and are required to attend all rehearsals for concert performances.
Students are expected to attend masterclasses of visiting artists specific to their field of study (ie classical or contemporary).
The performance major is devoted to developing the student's awareness of how, why and what is required for musical expression at the professional level. In this third unit is again on effective practice: at the second year level, the study aims to effect a concentration on consolidating technique to support the student's developing aesthetic sensibility.
Students undertake this study in the specialisation chosen in FCM102 Performance 1B; Classical Keyboard majors may choose to specialise from this unit onwards in accompaniment.
