Course Overview

The course will consist of two distinct elements: a) Practical Musicianship Skills and b) Ensemble Development.

They will create work for this group using their composition and improvisation skills in preparation for the improvisation element of the final recital. The ensembles will be entirely student-led with only minimal intervention from academic staff and students will be required to undertake a variety of peer-assessment techniques during this part of the course.
