Amcanion cyffredinol

This module combines a programme of individual instrumental or vocal tuition with an introduction to a range of important issues which concern performers, including preparing and delivering a recital programme, effective practice techniques, working with other musicians, and different approaches to interpretation.

Cynnwys cwrs

• A total of 12 hours of individual tuition from a designated teacher across the year. The exact frequency and duration of lessons are to be agreed between teacher and student, but they will normally take place between Week 2 and Week 12 of each semester.

• Regular performance workshops (2 hours each) in Semesters 1 and 2. Participation in the workshops is scheduled, and every musician can expect to perform at least twice in public. The schedule can be found on BlackBoard.

• Workshops are devoted to topics such as practice techniques, musicianship and injury prevention will also be scheduled, and this information can be found on BlackBoard.

Please note: Although this module runs officially in Semester 2, instrumental/vocal tuition and workshops run through the entire year.

For singers, and players of orchestral instruments, the School will arrange for a professional accompanist to be available, if required. (30 minutes rehearsal time will be allocated.) Friends and family of candidates are welcome to attend the final performance.

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.

THIS MODULE IS NOT AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL OF MUSIC.

PRE-REQUISITES: minimum of ABRSM 7 or equivalent.
