Using suitable ensemble music, students will study balance, intonation, phrasing, dynamics, group discipline and interpretation of aural and visual signals by the instructor.
The student will attend a rehearsal each week for the duration of two hours and will be expected to practice adequately as specified by the instructor. The instructor will teach the material and will conduct the rehearsals and concerts. In addition, the use of mechanical and/or electronic aids such as the TAP rhythm machine, recordings, tuning devices, metronomes, and others may be assigned and evaluated.
|Midterm TAP test||15%|
|Midterm playing test and/or in-class assessment||20%|
|Final TAP test||15%|
|Final playing test||30%|
|Ensemble skills (including performance at dress rehearsals and scheduled concerts)||20%|
*NB. In a performing group, regular attendance is vital to the learning of ensemble skills and the achievement of high performance standards. Absences affect every member of the ensemble; therefore 5% of the final mark will be deducted for each unexcused absence, to a maximum of 30%. Excused absences will include illness and urgent family or personal matters.
Unexcused absence from a dress rehearsal or a concert will result in a failing grade.
Successful students should learn to solve problems arising from performance of ensemble music with emphasis on rehearsal techniques and conductor-performer relationship.
All music for ensemble will be provided by Douglas College.
