Students develop and extend their practical music-making skills through performing works in an ensemble. They apply their musical understanding, skills, and techniques to refine and perform music. Students analyse their repertoire, and critique strategies to rehearse and develop their performances, and effectively contribute to the collaborative process of an ensemble.
Students apply knowledge and understanding of the style, structure, and conventions appropriate to the repertoire, in developing and refining musical performances, their musical imagination, and their ideas about and appreciation of music.
