This programme underpins the development of your practical skills as a musician with key theories, context and the development of academic skills. The programme is intended to be predominantly practical in its assessment and delivery, but with key theories and contextual information delivered as part of the course programme to underpin these practices. You are expected to develop vocational skills that will help them to learn in a more real world and vocational scenario. This could be through putting on a performance project or working with students from a different department to produce the piece of assessed work.

The e-learning strategy has been incorporated into the lessons to enhance the learning experience. You will use technology within some of the sessions for composition and notation. You may also notate pieces of written work by creating a blog or website. You will also utilise the College’s own VLE (Moodle) to embed. All the resources are posted on here, and you can engage further with it by taking quizzes and submitting assignments via ‘Turnitin’.

Assessment

Critical reflection forms a major part of the assessment for all the modules, with the development of portfolios providing much of the evidence for your reflection of learning and development. This should also help to provide you with a completed portfolio of work that could help you to enter employment when finishing the programme.

This project work allows for formative assessment to be ongoing throughout a module. Your tutors will maintain close contact with you throughout these projects, giving evidence for both formative and summative assessment whilst the module progresses.
