|Initiator/s||Dr Lisa Colton|
|Rationale||This module aims to reinforce and contextualise students’ diverse musical interests, providing a solid framework for optional modules in year 2 and the independent research options in year 3. Embedded in this module are relevant skills in research, written work and critical thinking.|
|Description of Initiative||This compulsory module for all BMus students links to MHC 2 and Research Project/Dissertation in yr 3.Students cover 5 project areas (The First Composers/Renaissance and Reformation/ Music in 17th Century England/The Italian Baroque Concerto/ The Symphonies of Mozart and Haydn)taught by subject specialist lecturers– each project consists of 1 keynote, 2 linked lectures and 2 tutor-led seminars in the pattern lecture-seminar-lecture-seminar. Students learn to understand the basis of the discipline of musicology and its concerns, gaining a sense of musico-historical perspective and an understanding of musico-stylistic change and development.Students are taught to construct ‘articulate, reasoned, well structured and convincing argument[s], in spoken and written form… drawing on a range of source materials, and supported by appropriate evidence’.|
|Ideas for adapting||
Tutor led but the AST delivers 10/15 minute sessions in seminars. Direct reference is made to the Academic Skills Website and del.icio.us site.AST 1:1s encouraged as follow-ups to the embedded skills sessions.
