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 Jazz/Popular Music).
In the Honours year, the performance major is designed to enable performers to focus study on the establishment of a core of repertoire representative of the student's musical and aesthetic abilities. In this, the second of two units, the aim of the unit is to continue the work of the first semester and so enhance the student's mastery of performance.
