Discovering Music C is a generic unit offered to all students across faculties. This unit focuses on Music and Culture in Society. It provides students with the opportunity to participate in creative music making and also attempts to enhance students understanding of community music making. The aim of this unit is threefold:

  1. It gives students the opportunity to engage in creative music making processes using classroom/orchestral instruments and other sound sources.
  2. Working with local communities in both Geelong and Melbourne, the notion of community music making in local, national and global settings will give students the opportunity to both celebrate and explore issues of diversity, multiculturalism, identity and otherness within community settings, thereby enabling collaborative partnerships.
  3. By exploring the notion of music and culture, students will gain understandings and exposure to the role, value and implications of music in society.

This unit hopes to promote the use and understandings of music to non-music specialists. It will also be offered in a flexible mode that gives students the opportunity to explore music through contemporary society. It takes into account some theoretical, political, social and cultural aspects giving students the opportunity to further research the above areas.
