Solo Performance Year 2
Rhedir gan School of Music and Media
20 Credyd neu 10 Credyd ECTS
Semester 1 a 2
Trefnydd: Mr Richard Craig
- Build on and enhance the skills acquired in Year 1 Solo Performance module
- Advance and refine the student's instrumental or vocal technique
The students will be expected to build on and expand skills already established during the solo performance modules in Year 1. This will be carried out through individual instrumental or vocal tuition. The tutor will provide consultation and help construct a projected programme of stylistically-varied technical and interpretive solo repertoire for the students to explore that will benefit the individual’s technical and musical development.
For singers, and players of orchestral instruments, the School will arrange for a professional accompanist to be available, if required.
Students are also required to inform the Head of Performance at least three weeks in advance of the recital if any technical playback equipment is required. If the student has not observed this instruction and the appropriate equipment is not available at the allocated time of the recital, the student will be expected to perform without it (which will be reflected in the grade, as appropriate) or the recital will have to be re-scheduled and it will count as a late submission (i.e. be capped at 40% or at 0%).
The repertoire you wish to perform in the performance assessment should be submitted as a text document (outlining the title, composer and durations) on BlackBoard, and also as two copies of a full score (for examiner and accompanist) to be submitted to the Music Office in week 9 of Semester 2.
A performance displaying limited musicality and technique, together with restricted attention to relevant notational and stylistic demands.
A performance which is persuasive, displaying good levels of interpretative ability, musicality and technique, together with overall attention to relevant notational and stylistic demands.
A performance which is compelling and convincing, displaying high levels of interpretative ability, musicality and technique, together with evidence of careful attention to relevant notational and stylistic demands.
Upon successful completion of the module, a student will be able to demonstrate the ability to respond to dynamic directions and project these in performance.
Upon successful completion of the module, a student will be able to demonstrate the ability to collaborate with the accompanist (or backing track): noting tempo changes, and a secure understanding of the piano part (or backing track).
Upon successful completion of the module, a student will be able to demonstrate the ability to collate and perform a programme of mixed repertoire which addresses a range of performance styles, tempi and articulations.
Formal examination of a performance, duration 20 minutes (including walking on and off the stage, tuning, etc.), held in the Assessment Period of Semester 2. There will be a small audience; friends and family of candidates are welcome to attend. If the agreed examination programme is to include jazz or rock repertoire, the Head of Performance must be informed by week 4.
