Course Description

Provides fourth term of individual private oboe instruction. Develops intermediate-level performance skills at the music major/minor level. Draws repertoire and technique methods from classical traditions. Includes training in performance practice and stylistic interpretation through focus on tone production, technique, applied knowledge, sight-reading, and other aspects of musicianship as applied to the oboe. Prerequisites: MUP 182C.

Addendum to Course Description

All applied music students are required to attend weekly lessons, attend weekly performance classes, participate in public performance, and complete a music jury. A substantial amount of out-of-lesson practice time is required.

Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon completion of the course students will be able to:

  • Perform intermediate-solo and intermediate-ensemble oboe repertoire using an understanding of intermediate musicianship and performance etiquette.
  • Prepare and rehearse intermediate-solo and intermediate-ensemble oboe repertoire for performance using an intermediate-level understanding of music literacy.
  • Demonstrate stylistic distinctions in intermediate-solo and intermediate-ensemble oboe repertoire to accurately interpret music in performance.
  • Demonstrate an intermediate-level understanding of the oboe to continue to improve as a performer.
  • Meet learning outcomes specific to this project as mutually agreed upon by the student and instructor in advance through a written learning contract, and as appropriate to the credit awarded for this course.

Aspirational Goals

Public performance of assigned repertoire demonstrating solid technique, musicianship and proper performance practice. (minimum of two area recitals in addition to final performance.)

Sightread excerpts of intermediate level repertory.

Participation in final recital and jury.

Successful completion of material assigned by private instructor.

  • Perform pieces from at least two different historical eras
  • Sight Reading Second Year Level Material

Outcome Assessment Strategies

Methods used to evaluate student progress and the criteria for assigning a course grade should be made clear by the instructor at the beginning of the course.  The individual instructor will determine the method of assessment.  Assessment methods may include:
