This unit is the second of two units aimed at providing an intensive course of study in music performance, designed to build your technical skills and musical expression. A wide range of styles and idioms will be included. Regular, detailed feedback on your work and progress is given during your weekly instrumental lessons and performance/composition class as well as through the more formal assessment tasks. At this level your study focuses on performance fundamentals. Your command of fundamental performance skills such as tone production, technical fluency, accurate tuning, correct tempo and rhythm will be demonstrated in both mid-semester (materials) and end of semester (performance) closed panel exams.
You undertake this study in the specialisation chosen in FCP110 Foundation Practical Study.
