Undergraduate Course: Recital (MUSI10021)
|School||Edinburgh College of Art
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||The work of the year is intended to prepare students to offer publicly, by May of the session, a well-balanced recital programme of 40 minutes' duration; diploma standard is expected. An essay which considers performance-related issues, reception history, and any other information relevant to the programme being presented, is also required, as are programme notes.
Most contact teaching hours will consist of regular lessons with private vocal/instrumental teachers throughout the academic year. Teachers are asked to provide the Course Organiser with brief progress reports on each student's work. Recital students are reimbursed by the University to a maximum of £650 for tuition fees; costs of lessons in excess of this sum have to be paid by the student. Travelling costs to lessons and instrument maintenance costs may also be incurred.
Additional sessions will be run by the Course Organiser in which 'feedback' and advice are offered (rather in the manner of the Performance Seminars in first and second year), and in which guidance will also be given in the preparation of the written component of the course.
Please note that piano accompaniment is available as a performing option. This will not include keyboard tests. The accompanist must arrange for a soloist to be available for the examination.
