This unit is only available via the University Connections Program (UCP) (formerly known as the UTAS/University College Program).
When completed, this full UTAS unit will attract TCE points and contribute to ATAR.
All college students enrolled in this unit are encouraged to be a member of a college band/ensemble or choir. If the student is a composition major, it is advised that they have their works performed and recorded by an appropriate ensemble/performer.
Student who complete FCP113 but do not meet the standard required for a pass result or higher, will be withdrawn from the course without academic penalty - a failure (NN) result is not recorded on the academic transcript.
This unit is the first of two units aimed at providing an intensive course of study in music performance or composition designed to build skills to allow a successful audition into the Bachelor of Music Degree or the Bachelor of Musical Arts Degree.
Regular, detailed feedback on the student's work and progress is given during the student's scheduled music classes as well as through the more formal assessment tasks.
The student's command of fundamental performance skills will be demonstrated in both mid-year and end of year performance assessments. Similarly, for those majoring in composition, the student's command of compositional elements and capacity to write in an interesting, coherent manner will be demonstrated through a growing portfolio of work in both mid-year and end of year assessment procedures.
