Courses & Units

Music Project 1 FCE107

  • Enrolment in this unit is subject to approval by the Unit Coordinator.
  • Conservatorium students are expected to have prepared their parts thoroughly prior to the first scheduled rehearsal.
  • This unit is also available as a Performance Project Unit within the University Connections Program (UCP) (formerly known as the UTAS/University College Program):
    • Successful students can count the unit towards their TCE (15 credit points) but do not receive a TE score (for contribution to ATAR).
    • Important: UCP students who complete this FCE unit but do not meet the standard required for a pass result or higher will be withdrawn from the course without academic penalty – a failure (NN) award is not recorded on their university transcript. This (unfortunately), results in students not obtaining the allocated 15 TCE credit points.
    • Students identified at risk of not passing this unit should consider withdrawing and enrolling in the TASC Music Ensemble Level 2 course (MUT205115) providing there is a sufficient timeframe to meet requirements of that course (and if successful, to obtain the allocated TCE credit points).
    • Work in this unit is not permitted to be also counted/used for any assessment purposes in other units or courses of study that contribute to TCE points (TASC subjects for example).
    • Please contact the UConnect support team with enquiries or find out more about credit for UCP units and other information at University Connections Program.


Designed to explore the procedural and artistic elements embedded within professional music performance practice, this unit encompasses the undertaking of thorough pre-rehearsal preparation as well as an intensive rehearsal process leading to (at least) two full presentations of prepared material. Students will develop skills in music collaboration, musical placement and technical and artistic skills appropriate to extended ensemble situations within a variety of contexts.
