A specialised course in repertoire study of a chosen composer/songwriter and/or stylistic area.
Repertoire Studies focuses on a specific body of repertoire chosen by the student with staff guidance. It can be taken in three different ways: as music performance (on a variety of instruments or as a singer), as creative response (for composers and songwriters) or as academic scholarship (a short dissertation).

- Paper Structure
Students will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of a chosen composer and/or stylistic area through one of three approaches: performance, composition or academic scholarship.
As music performance: 100% of the final mark is a recital of 25 to 30 minutes' duration, examined by a department panel and an external moderator. The student is expected to write detailed and well-written programme notes.
As creative response: 25% of the final mark is a written essay of 2,000-3,000 words to be examined by a member of the academic staff. 75% of the final mark is in compositions as a creative response to the repertoire.
As aAcademic scholarship: 100% of the final mark is a written essay of 7,500-10,000 words.
In all three cases, students will be supervised by a member of staff.

- Learning Outcomes
- Students will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of a chosen composer and/or stylistic area through one of three approaches: performance, composition or academic scholarship.
- Students will demonstrate how research can inform performance, composition or academic writing through a selected subject area in which repertoire matters are studied and demonstrated.
- Repertoire will be chosen in consultation with the lecturer at a level commensurate with the student's ability and in an area in which there is appropriate resource material.
- In the case of performance, technical aims will be determined by your teacher to be specified along with consideration of the repertoire.
