Module summary

This module supports your further development in advanced vocal or instrumental technique, musical communication and interpretative ability and allows you to explore a wider range of repertoire, culminating in the presentation of a solo or ensemble recital.

Module will run

Occurrence Teaching period
A Semester 1 2023-24
B Semester 2 2023-24

Module aims

The module aims to build your confidence and autonomy in preparing and presenting a solo or ensemble performance, and broaden your understanding and experience of the repertoire available to them. Students who choose this module will be expected to develop a greater level of autonomy in relation to their artistic decisions, preparation, organization and time-management than in Recital 1.

By bringing independent work week by week to their tutors, you are encouraged to consolidate an advanced level of technique and the qualities of a critical, reflective and informed artistic practice. The specialism-specific performance class is used to facilitate peer feedback and reflection, to develop your presentation and communication with a live audience, and to encourage creative experimentation with interpretative options.

Module learning outcomes

  1. Be able to design and efficiently prepare a solo or ensemble recital through self-directed practice and rehearsal with the support of your teacher

  2. Demonstrate an advanced level of instrumental or vocal technique and musicianship sufficient to convey your chosen repertoire and your own interpretative ideas

  3. Be able to identify, understand and contextualize a range of ideas, issues and creative possibilities relating to your chosen musical material (and its text, where appropriate)

  4. Make and convey coherent and convincing interpretative and artistic choices in a wider range of repertoire

  5. Be able to perform a programme of solo and/or ensemble music with confidence and polish, showing a strong understanding of presentation and audience communication
