Dependent on availability of staff, students will undertake a semester of practical skills in either keyboard or guitar. Students will also study percussion performance using both tuned and un-tuned instruments. Students will undertake a study of the elements of music and their organisation through a repertoire of non-Western music. Students at the Burwood campus will undertake a study of African music and culture, and those at Geelong will study Aboriginal music and culture.
For this unit a variety of assessment items will be set including performance test, written and aural test, practical demonstrations, written essay and or presentation.
