PERF12017 - Performance and Production Studies 4

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Building on the learning objectives of Performance and Production Studies 3, through intermediate studies in ensemble music performance and/or theatre performance students should be able to synthesize their specialised performance skills within the context of publicly presented music and/or theatre ensemble performances. These music and/or theatre ensemble activities give students the opportunity to work in various performance, technical and creative roles as appropriate so that they have the opportunity to develop intermediate skills in problem-solving, creative, self-regulated and critical thinking, within a team-based environment. Students enrolled in the Music Theatre, Drama and Technical Theatre specialisations will also undertake studies in sound for the theatre, including the physical components of the sound system, sound reinforcement, sound recording and sound design for the theatre. Students enrolled in the BMusic may also undertake intermediate studies in artistic direction, ensemble coordination, event management and arts business.
