Workshop With Independent Reading List – Music
Students must be enrolled on the Bachelor in Creative Arts programme.
Students will acquire fundamental knowledge about theories and methods in composition/song-writing and learn to apply this knowledge in practice.
Teaching will include notation, harmony, rhythm and other subjects, which are relevant to the music genres students are working with. The course will focus both on analysing relevant music theories and mastering them in practice. In this context students will compile individual independent reading lists with 5 works, which are relevant to their own music making. This reading list is subject to the approval of the teacher before it can be added to the materials, which may be referenced during examination.
Learning and teaching approaches
The approach used is workshop-based teaching with exercises, discussions, lectures and presentations.
Students who successfully complete the course can demonstrate ability to: - explain in detail theories and methods in composition/song-writing - discuss relevant theories and methods critically - apply relevant theories and methods in practice and assess these independently - contextualise their own composition and song writing within music making practice
Combined. Set take-home assignment + oral presentation.
Relevant materials are circulated at the start of the course. In addition, students will draw up an independent reading list with 5 works, which will be added to the material that may be referenced during examination.
