Ensemble Performance (W3040)

15 credits, Level 5

Autumn teaching

You prepare with ensemble conductors/coaches, for an ensemble recital at the end of the module. Additionally, performers are asked to prepare course notes for your recital. Throughout the module critical perspectives on good ensemble recital practice are fostered through contribution to, and attendance at, weekly lunchtime recitals and occasional workshops in addition to regular attendance at university. You are examined on your performance practice and programming skills.

Teaching and assessment

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 6 hours of contact time and about 144 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, there may be changes to this module in response to COVID-19, or due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.

It may not be possible to take some module combinations due to timetabling constraints. The structure of some courses means that the modules you choose first may determine whether later modules are core or optional.
