Amcanion cyffredinol

The aims of the module are to engage with repertoire and performance skills in an ensemble scenario, and be introduced to the professional practice of ensemble performance. This entails the organisation of rehearsals, research into repertoire, forming an ensemble, and can include arrangement of new repertoire, contemporary music performance techniques, as well as historically informed performance.

The assessment is then one performance which takes into consideration the individual contribution of the performer in the ensemble, and then the ensemble collectively and how they address challenges of the repertoire and co-ordination.

It is only possible to take 20 credits in this module across the two years, and it is essential that participants are to form their own ensemble in advance or in the early stages of the workshops.

Cynnwys cwrs

Students will be required to form small instrumental or vocal ensembles before the course commences. If students have a specific instrumental formation in mind that cannot be formed within the module, they may invite guest performers. Pianists will have the option to choose collaborative piano (accompanying) as their specialism within the module. Collective rehearsal sessions will be organised by the students with individual coaching provided by members of the School of Music staff. Ensembles are encouraged to explore the existing repertoire during weeks 1–3, and then in subsequent weeks to work on their performance of the work(s) selected by the group.

Please note that students may follow a maximum of 20 credits in EnsemblePerformance across Levels 5 and 6.
