MUSC 481 Recording and Performance Ensemble


This advanced course requires students to develop their own collaborative projects, with the ultimate goal of creating a professionally marketable performing and recording entity. Over the course of the academic year, with the advice and coaching of their ensemble directors, the groups will develop a set of material for live-showcase performance, and create a fully produced, 3-5 song set of recordings suitable for commercial release. The bands will work closely with faculty, staff producers, resident and guest artists in creating their recorded product, and will have additional opportunities to create and perform in concert with select resident artists. Over the course of their two-semester project, band members may be engaged in various aspects of their project’s creative and business activities including development of group persona, genre and direction, songwriting and repertoire development. Projects may also collaborate on their promotional, and overall artist-development materials with students and teams from the Music Business program. The class closely models experiences found in the professional space, and takes the student outside of their comfort zone in preparing them for the challenges of the music industry.
