The Sydney Conservatorium of Music places a high emphasis on its research activity, with a vibrant and diverse community of staff and students. The Master of Music (Performance) provides a unique opportunity to develop high-level skills in the production of research-based creative work in music performance. The final thesis embodying the results of the research will include the final creative work presentation and a written dissertation of 10,000 to 20,000 words.Within the degree structure, candidates receive training and supervision to support development of their performance-based creative work and associated dissertation. Candidates organise and present their creative work (recital, lecture recital, recording or other appropriate form) demonstrating independence of thought, critical awareness and interpretative capacities, and high potential as a scholarly musician.Candidates will be able to articulate the contribution which their performance makes towards extending the boundaries of the discipline of performance through such means as expanded stylistic or interpretative horizons, investigation of historical performance practice, development of new performance modes, relationships and techniques, or through enhanced critical, historical or analytical perspectives.
