This course will enable students to undertake an individual or group music project to investigate a music research question relevant to one or more areas of the School's activities, including but not limited to performance; composition, arranging and sound design; musicology; and music technology. The output may range from creative practice such as performance or composition supported by a short text, to multimedia, to a traditional linear verbal text. The project may be group-based or individual. Examples include: composition and performance of a music theatre work; research, composition, performance or recording of classical, jazz and contemporary works; rehearsal and performance of an historically performed early music piece; a participation / observation project with a practising music specialist, or a musicological study drawing on archival sources.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- pose a question relating to music;
- investigate this question creatively, critically, ethically, and independently through one or more of performance, composition, arranging, sound design, multi-media, music technology, or extended verbal form;
- demonstrate creative, practical and research skills that can be applied to a range of professional environments within the broad music industry; and
- communicate their research and its findings in an appropriate medium, such as public performance, multi-media, or extended written form, to both specialist and non-specialist audiences.
