About

This Music programme at Cork Institute of Technology is a full-time,  taught course for performers (instrumentalists/singers/accompanists/chamber ensembles), conductors and composers.

Overview

Music performers at Cork Institute of Technology are examined primarily through a series of three public recitals/concerto performances; conductors will be examined through a series of three public concerts and associated rehearsals; composers will be examined primarily through the submission of a portfolio of compositions in three instalments. As an alternative to the third public performance, suitable candidates may undertake a dissertation, or a compositional or conducting module. The programme will include opportunities to participate in masterclasses with international artists as well as workshops with professionals operating in the international cultural sector.

Learning outcomes

During the first semester all students are required to submit a Planning Portfolio exploring planning issues, repertoire and preparation of performances/compositions. Students will also benefit from training in recording technology and interact with peers from the Taught MA in Music and Technology course. Using the school’s state-of-the-art facilities, students will be able to obtain high quality recordings of their performances as well as producing demo recordings. A free choice module is also taken during the first semester. This can be in a cognate area, such as Research Methodology or Music and Technology, but need not be directly related to music.

All students take a common Professional Studies course over the first two semesters dealing with entrepreneurial, organisational, presentational, and technological issues common to all performers/composers, and (during the second semester) each student delivers a case study arising from the lecture material to the cohort of postgraduate students and leads the ensuing seminar.

In the last semester, candidates will also be required to submit a Reflective Portfolio for examination.  Although this will consist primarily of written reflections on the learning experiences relating to the core practical elements of the course, it will also include a written summary of the candidate’s seminar presentation for the Professional Studies element of the course.
