This unit promotes an impartial approach to performance, focusing on basic musicianship, stagecraft, verbal and non-verbal communication, collaboration, planning, rehearsal, performance and self-reflection. It aims to develop an understanding of the contextual nature of performance and identify key historical and cultural reference points that define performance practice. It also promotes acoustic and semi-acoustic performance in smaller to medium-sized venues and the development of basic skills using compact P.A. systems.

1. Identify musical elements and performance practice techniques in differing contemporary music genres;
2. Recognise and locate music appropriate for a simulated performance venue;
3. Prepare and perform an acoustic/semi-acoustic "cover" set in collaboration with others;
4. Review development of own performance and peers; and

Group based performacne and teaching are both important aspecgts of this unit, so active participation and attendance at all lectures and tutirials is highly recommended. It is expected that rehearsals for assessment will occur outside of class time in a group (band) context.
Required IT skills
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit includes public performances as a major assessment item, and students are encourgaed to busk, which has been successful and I believe constitutes a form of WIL.
