Students develop and extend their practical music-making skills through performing solo works for instrument(s) and/or voice. They apply their musical understanding, skills, technique, and accuracy in performing and refining music, developing stage presence and skills in engaging an audience. Students analyse their chosen repertoire, and critique strategies to develop their performances, and evaluate their performances as a soloist.
Students apply their knowledge and understanding of the style, structure, and conventions appropriate to their chosen repertoire to craft musical performances, develop their musical imagination, and communicate ideas about, and appreciation of music.
