MUSPERF 7024 - Major Recital V

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2017

The aim of this course it to develop a program of works in the repertoire of the specialisation that contributes to the development of advanced specialist knowledge in music performance. It culminates in the presentation of a 65-minute public recital. The recital projects are supported by one hour of 1:1 tuition per week and a series of workshops. Repertoire may include solo works, chamber music, orchestral material, concerti, or accompaniment. Recital programs are subject to approval and details must be submitted within the first 6 weeks of the program. The program of works is expected to demonstrate advanced performance with consistent confidence in technical presentation, demonstrate mastery beyond the knowledge of style, convince the audience of the vision of the work, be conducted in an ethical manner with an awareness of different cultural practices, and present a professional demeanour. The overall standard of the final recital is expected to be commensurate with entry level into the profession.

    Learning & Teaching Modes
    Individual or small-group (maximum 4) supervisions form the central teaching and learning mode. Students pursue their performance project using instrumental practice to advance and finesse their goals. Individual/small group discussion encourages testing and sharing of musical theory and practice as students move towards a summative assessment in the form of a recital. Staff concerned have skills and knowledge in the specialist area being developed and are able to assist in the location and use of appropriate materials and scholarly and/or performance conventions and standards.

    Assessment Detail

    The Major Recital is the core component, providing a focus for their studies in professional performance skills leading to outcomes in their own realisation of musical works. 

    Program notes are required for recitals. Notes should be prepared for each work performed and should demonstrate careful research and independent thought. Plagiarism must be avoided and quoted sources should be acknowledged. The quality of program notes will be taken into account by the examiners and may influence the final result for the recital. They will be assessed as excellent, satisfactory, or unsatisfactory, and increase or reduce the overall marks by a margin of up to 5%.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
