MUSI140 Performance Studies 1

Tuition to develop performance skills in a solo instrument or voice, a second instrument or voice, or an approved popular music or World Music Option (either Gamelan, Taiko, Taonga pūoro or Scottish piping or drumming). Solo study students will develop skills for possible entry to MUSI141 or MUSI240.

This 18-point paper caters for students wishing to develop their performance skills. It can be taken in one of the following ways:

  • As a preliminary performance paper that can either lead into a higher-level 18-point MUSI paper (ie MUSI 240) or a 36-point MUSI paper (ie MUSI 141)
  • As a paper for the one-semester exchange student
  • As a second-instrument study for existing performance students
  • As a paper in an approved World Music Option
Therefore, there are two main areas:
  1. Solo Instrumental: Admission to the Performance Studies paper in a solo instrument is by audition. The paper provides tuition to develop the candidate's potential in a semester or whole-year course
  2. World Music Option: Students will learn to play traditional and contemporary music in an approved World Music Option (gamelan, taiko or Scottish piping or drumming). Gamelan and taiko are ideal for students with no prior knowledge of these styles of music. An audition is not required for gamelan or raiko.
