This unit will challenge you to extend your music practice. From the foundation of core technical and artistic skills you have previously developed, you will explore elements of musicianship, making informed and reflective decisions about how to apply these skills in the creation and realisation of musical works. You will bring together contextual knowledge with the development of your practice by exhibiting an emerging depth of artistic expression. Collaboration is an important aspect of any area of music and you will expand upon your ability to work with others. You will enact effective musical decisions in ensembles or equivalent project work. You will engage in a range of activities and learning environments appropriate to your specialisation.
