To enrol in this unit, students must meet honours/postgraduate course entry requirements (for example completion of a 300 credit point undergraduate degree with a major in a relevant discipline). Enrolment is dependent upon the establishment of a balanced ensemble and students enrolled are expected to maintain a regular rehearsal schedule throughout the semester.
This unit provides students with opportunities to develop the skills required for professional participation in a small ensemble environment. The content focuses on the building of ensemble expertise such that students develop collaborative, interpretative and presentation skills for the performance of advanced repertoire. For Chamber Music students the repertoire shall be determined and agreed upon by the students and unit coordinator at the commencement of semester. All students will plan the subsequent rehearsal schedule and undertake the required research and repertoire analysis necessary to enable a concert performance of substantial quality.
