1664.21 - Mentor Conversations – Music

Course number
Mentor Conversations – Music
Students must be enrolled on the Bachelor in Creative Arts programme.
The aim of this course is to support, develop and strengthen students in working with their own Music. In consultation with the programme leader, each student choses a mentor, who will guide the student in working with their own music and provide the student with tools to produce tangible musical outcomes.
Together the mentor and student will draw up a plan for the semester, which is tailored to the music genre the student works with. Through conversations with the mentor, close listening and critique the student will work to distinguish and develop their own music and musical style.
Learning and teaching approaches
The mentor and student will meet 10 hours in total in the course of one semester. The approach is individual conversations in which the student’s own music is discussed and developed. In addition to the student’s own pieces, the mentor and student will listen to other music material and read relevant material about music, which are intended as inspiration for the student’s own work.
Learning outcomes
Students who successfully complete the course can demonstrate ability to: - explain the method they apply to their own music-making - analyse the characteristics and distinctive features of their own works with regards to style, genre and references - assess the development of their own music
Assessment method
Portfolio + annex due for submission at the end of the course.
Marking scale
The student and mentor agree on a reading list with material that resonates with and challenges the student’s own work with music. The volume of this material must be equivalent to the provisions for BA-level courses at the Faculty of Faroese Language and Literature.
