Performers will deliver a stylistically informed performance with a command of appropriate musical and repertoire skills, whereas composers will have the opportunity to compose ambitious pieces and to have a highly developed awareness of your compositional identity and to be able to apply this in a consistent and focused manner.
The module gives you the opportunity to show a command in your execution and to realise and develop your emerging musical voice with appropriate expression, creativity and presentation.
