In this capstone unit you will develop and undertake your own self-directed project in any field of musical activity. Negotiated with and overseen by teaching staff, your tailored experience provides an exciting opportunity to bring together everything you have learned so far and to trial desired modes of creative work for the future. You will engage in project-based learning activities pertaining to the creation, research, performance, recording, promotion, distribution, commentary and criticism of musical works. Embracing individual and collaborative projects, the unit prepares you to work in varied musical contexts.
