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.
This introductory unit provides the foundation for all further studies in music performance and complements Musicianship: Contextualising the contemporary and Composition: Song writing and historical perspectives units, though these units are not considered co-requisites.

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
