This unit allows students to further develop proficiency on one Chinese instrument in both small group and ensemble settings, and to continue to perform with the ensemble. Students are also encouraged to take an increasingly active and independent role in engaging with Chinese music. In particular, they are guided and supported in small group collaborations focussing upon developing, rehearsing, recording and publicly performing a range of works for Chinese instruments.
