This course is available BY PERMISSION ONLY. Entry will be determined on the basis of the pre-entry audition score and instrument sub-quotas. Students will undertake intensive 1:1 tuition in their chosen instrument (14 hours per Semester). Students will further develop their individual technical and musical potential, together with a mature understanding of interpretive principles and performance skills through the study of appropriate repertoire and technical exercises. In consultation with their instrumental teacher, students will also undertake an extended study consisting of either, a discreet set of works designed specifically for technical development, an extended work, or orchestral excerpts relevant to their instrument. Students are also expected to undertake a minimum of 10 hours per week of structured individual practice as designated by their instrumental teacher including repertoire study and a wide variety of technical exercises relevant to the student's chosen instrument. Through the Performance Classes, students will be given the opportunity to develop a range of preparation and performance practice skills. Through the Technique and Repertoire Classes, students will develop a range of skills and approaches which will aid their technical development, and will be given the opportunity to present, perform and discuss their current repertoire with fellow students as 'work in progress'. Students are expected to further their development of their specialisation in Classical Performance Advanced 2A in advance of that achieved in Classical Performance Advanced 1B.
