Leader: David Griffiths and Graeme Smith


Clayton Second semester 2007 (Day)


Students are required to propose a program of works to be arranged and/or conducted for performance by an approved ensemble. Students meet with a supervisor to discuss the arrangements, develop approaches to interpretation, and refine baton techniques specific to their program choice.


Upon successful completion of this unit, students should have developed the skills and knowledge required to successfully create musical materials for a potentially disparate group of musicians. In addition, they should be able to offer this group the musical and artistic direction necessary in realizing a successful musical performance. Therefore, students will gain intermediate skills in conducting, orchestration and ensemble management that will have been consolidated around one integrated project.
