ATS1045 or ATS1350

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





This unit develops intermediate music technical skills by studying technically-focused 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 beyond that studied in ATS1044 Performance 1 and ATS1045 Performance 2.


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

  1. utilise conventions of instrumental/vocal technique with some expertise;
  2. perform technical work with a growing control of rhythm, articulation, timbre and intonation (if applicable);
  3. prepare technical work, etudes and instrumental/vocal literature;
  4. demonstrate musicianship with a developing sophistication in phrasing, dynamic control and general expression;
  5. perform effectively in a chosen/approved music ensemble with a critical awareness of the various roles involved;
  6. demonstrate perceptive music listening skills through verbal critiques.
