Composition in Music Education (MUED3603)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit of study will examine the teaching and learning of composition in schools. Through the completion of small-scale composition exercises using recent Australian compositions as a model, students will develop strategies to successfully integrate composition into their teaching and experience ways in which composition can be seen as a site of music learning. Students will survey sampling, sequencing and notation software, develop skills in software evaluation suitable for composition, and discuss how technology can enhance the teaching and learning of composition. Strategies for assessing composition work will be considered.
