college-wide performances you will have the opportunity to work as a solo artist and as part of an ensemble, performing music in a variety of styles. It is ideal for anyone who wishes to have a career in performing or teaching in the future. 



The focus is on developing your performance skills, music analysis and the use of music technology. You will rehearse and perform as a solo artist, and as a member of an ensemble. In addition you will be encouraged to reflect on your methods of practising your instrument and be guided in more effective ways of improving your technique. You will also be required to organise a music event.
