Music Ensemble: Course Proposal.
A proposal is presented for a Music Ensemble course to be offered at the Community College of Philadelphia for music students who have had previous vocal or instrumental training. A standardized course proposal cover form is followed by a statement of purpose for the course, a list of major course goals, a course outline, and a bibliography. Next, five course-level objectives (CL0) are presented, along with criteria of acceptable performance and intermediate performance objectives. According to the CLO's, the student will: (1) perform an assigned melodic part maintaining proper pitches, pulses, dynamic changes, phrase structures, articulations, tempos, and tempo changes; (2) perform assigned melodic parts in conjunction with other members of a group evidencing the skills listed above; (3) perform with the entire ensemble a rehearsed movement of an entire composition under the guidance of a conductor directing upbeats, downbeats, forte dynamic levels, piano dynamic levels, crescendos, diminuendos, accelerandos, and ritardandos; (4) learn cohesive techniques to achieve smooth performances without a conductor; and (5) perform constructs for an annual recital selecting compositions for various groups of performers, composing and editing a written program for the performance, electing specific dates, preparing auditorium schedules, distributing public relations materials, and distinguishing and identifying proper decorum for a successful presentation.
