ATS1044 OR ATS1349

This unit is only available to students enrolled in a Bachelor of Music single or double degree - Music performance or Ethnomusicology and musicology specialisations.





This unit develops fundamental music performance skills by studying repertoire drawn from the literature of the student's principal instrument or voice. The choice of repertoire presented should be of greater complexity and difficulty than that studied in ATS1044 Performance 1.


Upon successful completion of the unit, students will be able to:

  1. utilise fundamental conventions of instrumental/vocal technique;
  2. perform technical work, demonstrating control of rhythm, articulation, timbre and intonation (if applicable);
  3. prepare chosen works to demonstrate knowledge of relevant instrumental/vocal repertoire;
  4. demonstrate musicianship through phrasing, dynamics control and general expression found in the chosen repertoire;
  5. perform competently in a chosen/approved music ensemble;
  6. demonstrate music listening skills through verbal critiques.
