Building on rehearsal and performance techniques developed through Song Writing and Performance 1A and 1B, this course enables students to develop strategies for the preparation and performance of live original music in a more formal performance setting. A major emphasis of this course is on self and peer evaluation, where students present original work, and it is subjected to discussion in a supportive environment to enable students to develop critical thinking skills, and insight into the evaluation of creative work. Guest presentations by Music Industry professionals expose students to new developments in the industry, and insight into their creative practice, and students are encouraged to engage actively in the local industry through undertaking off-campus performance critiques. Performance Forums will comprise of guest lectures by industry identities, master-classes, and student performances.
