This course provides the opportunity to participate in specialist ensembles, both large and small, that cater for each student's instrument/voice and career goals. The course also offers components which can enhance professional skills, depending on the student's instrument/voice. Ensemble rehearsal and performance focusses on the skills of reading, listening, intonation, blend, articulation, individual sound, improvisation and, stylistic interpretation within the ensemble context. Through involvement in rehearsals in which students gain experience with professional ensemble directors, students will develop effective practising strategies, rehearsal discipline and creative approaches to problem solving.
