This unit consolidates and extends the intermediate skills in music performance developed in ATS2122 Performance 3. Students further develop technical and performance skills by presenting literature drawn from the repertoire of the student's principal instrument or voice. The choice of repertoire should consolidate and go beyond the level of skills attained in ATS2122 Performance 3. This prepares students for the advanced level of instrumental/vocal technical development required for the next unit in the sequence, ATS3136 Performance 5.
Upon completion of this unit, students are able to:
- Demonstrate further command of technical skills and concepts encountered in the presentation of appropriate instrumental/vocal repertoire beyond the level attained after completing ATS2122 Performance 3;
- Demonstrate a continuing development of instrumental/vocal technique beyond the level attained after completing ATS2122 Performance 3 and demonstrate this development through growing control of rhythm, articulation, timbre and intonation (if applicable) in relation to the performance of appropriate repertoire;
- Demonstrate a continuing development of knowledge of relevant repertoire, through preparation of specifically chosen works drawn from the literature of the students' instrument/voice of greater difficulty and complexity than that studied in ATS2122 Performance 3;
- Demonstrate continuing development of musicianship through sophistication of phrasing, dynamic control and general expression beyond that attained in ATS2122 Performance 3.
