Music Capstone Project FCI303

Introduction

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.
