  1. Utilise advanced instrumental/vocal technique.
  2. Perform recital repertoire with extended control of rhythm, accuracy, articulation, tone quality and intonation (if applicable).
  3. Prepare specifically chosen works drawn from the literature of the students' instrument/voice demonstrating knowledge of an extended relevant repertoire, including a work by a female composer and a work by an Australian composer.
  4. Demonstrate musicianship with sophistication of phrasing, dynamic control and general expression.
  5. Perform effectively in a chosen/approved ensemble and show performance practice awareness.
  6. Demonstrate perceptive music listening skills and informed peer reviewing skills through verbal critiques.
