The unit consolidates and extends fundamental skills in music performance developed in ATS1044 Performance

  1. Students further develop technical and performance skills by presenting for examination repertoire appropriate to this foundational level of tertiary study. The choice of repertoire should consolidate and go beyond the level of skills attained in ATS1044 Performance
  2. This prepares students for the intermediate level of instrumental/vocal technical development required for the next unit in the sequence, ATS2122 Performance 3.


Upon completion of the unit, students are able to:

  1. Demonstrate fundamental conventions of instrumental/vocal technique beyond the foundational level attained after completing ATS1044 Performance 1;
  2. Demonstrate fundamental control of rhythm, articulation, timbre and intonation (if applicable) through the performance of appropriate technical work;
  3. Demonstrate knowledge of relevant instrumental/vocal repertoire through preparation of specifically chosen works appropriate to this foundational level of tertiary performance;
  4. Demonstrate musicianship through fundamental understanding of phrasing, dynamics control and general expression found in the chosen repertoire.
