MISSION STATEMENT FOR THE SCHOOL OF MUSIC
The primary mission of the School of Music is to provide the best possible musical and educational experience for our students, through the integration of the various musical disciplines, encouraging their personal and professional growth so that they may become informed, reflective and creative practitioners in their fields.
It is also our mission to provide an inspiring and stimulating educational environment, bringing music to the wider community by supporting the art form in performance, composition, pedagogy, research and scholarship at the highest level.
WELCOME
The School of Music and its staff extend a warm welcome to all new and returning postgraduate students.
This handbook is designed to be read in conjunction with the University’s official Postgraduate Handbook and with reference to relevant UWA websites. Information is presented in this document on your study programs, how to organise your work for presentation, and how it will be assessed, including the preparation of your submissions for examination. It also provides information about facilities and support for students in the School of Music. Use this handbook to help you get the most out of your degree.
We hope that your time at UWA will prove to be academically inspiring, personally enjoyable and musically exciting, and we encourage you to participate as fully as possible in all aspects of the life of the School of Music. There is a regular opportunity for lively debate and exchange of ideas in Graduate Study Days and the Tuesday afternoon Research Seminars, where we share and discuss work with peers and occasional visitors. There are, of course, many other opportunities to attend similar seminars in other schools within the Faculty and across the University. Also, please make the most of the many opportunities on offer for performing and listening to music, both here in the School and in the community. We wish you every success in your studies.

Should you have further questions, please address these to the Postgraduate Coordinator for Music, Associate Professor Nicholas Bannan, or to the School of Music Postgraduate Moderator, Associate Professor David Symons.

MUSIC STUDENTS’ SOCIETY
www.musicstudentssociety.org
The Music Students’ Society (MSS) is a non-profit student-based organisation with membership open to all students at the University of WA. A committee is elected every year from the music student body. The MSS is affiliated as a Faculty Society with the UWA Guild of Undergraduates, recognising the School of Music students as a separate and highly specialised body within the general Arts population. This affiliation means that members of the committee attend regular Guild meetings, including Education Council (ED) and Societies Council (SOC).
The MSS liaises with the School of Music staff by the President attending all staff meetings where any student issues can be addressed. The MSS organises a large number of concerts and performance opportunities displaying the talents of the performance students as well as composition and education students. The MSS also provides a multitude of social events throughout the year that provide opportunity for students to get to know one another and to enjoy the community aspect of university life. Current committee members are as follows:

CONCERTS
The School of Music presents a number of public concerts and events throughout the year. The Artistry! series consists of 4 evening mixed-repertoire concerts featuring students, staff, and visiting artists. The Keyed Up! piano recital series consists of 4 solo piano recitals by visiting pianists in Callaway Music Auditorium.  Chamber! celebrates chamber music with performances from Paul Tanner (percussion), Ashley Smith (clarinet), Julianne Baird (soprano) and Caitlin Hulcup (soprano). This year also sees the emergence of our new ‘Callaway Series’ presenting works by students working towards their coursework goals. We are also welcome international guitar superstar Craig Ogden as party of our Guitar Feast!
The free Lunchtime Concert series features free recitals by students, staff and visiting artists in the Octagon Theatre each Thursday of semester. We also run a number of special events, including masterclasses, vocal performances, community events, and additional recitals. Full details of 2013 concerts and events are available on the concerts page of the School of Music website, http://www.music.uwa.edu.au/concerts and in our Rise 2013 concerts brochure.
A number of School of Music concerts feature students. Details of concerts you may be involved in (including rehearsal schedules) are distributed with as much notice as possible for all events. Please check your student email, LMS and the student notice board regularly throughout the year for any updates, and check in with your ensemble director or the Coordinator, Concerts with any questions or concerns.
OTHER UNIVERSITY EVENTS

There are a number of University events throughout the year that involve performances by students from the School of Music, including the March and September Graduation Ceremonies and UWA Expo. Please keep an eye out for details of these events throughout the year and check in with the Coordinator, Concerts & Outreach if you have any queries.
CONCERT PAYMENT POLICY

Please note that it is not University policy to pay students for performing in UWA events/concerts/ceremonies. Students are required to consult with the Coordinator, Concerts & Outreach, or Head of School before negotiating or accepting fees for any performance work on campus.
RECITALS

Senior recitals for 3rd and 4th year performance students generally take place at the end of second semester. Further details are provided throughout the year. These are public recitals and all students are encouraged to attend. Coursework and assessed recitals featuring MMus and DMA performance candidates make a significant contribution to the School of Music program.
Recitals are listed on the website here: http://www.music.uwa.edu.au/concerts/special-events/recital-schedule
TICKETS AND ATTENDANCE

All students are encouraged to attend concerts wherever possible. All School of Music concerts are FREE for music students, but for ticketed events you must reserve your seat prior to the day of the concert by visiting the concerts office (Rm 1.15) or emailing concerts@uwa.edu.au. We are only able to allocate one ticket per student, and these tickets are not transferable (ie. they must be used by the person who booked the ticket and cannot be passed onto a friend or family member). The proceeds from concert ticket sales go towards running future events and programs at the School of Music, so please encourage others to come along wherever possible.
MUSIC MATERIALS IN UWA LIBRARIES
Music materials are held at different locations within the UWA Library system. The Wigmore Music Library contains scores, performing editions of musical works, sound-recordings (including online sound-recording databases, such as Naxos and Classical Music Library), videos, journals and music reference materials. The Reid Library houses a major collection of music monographs and texts. Some music education books are housed also in the Education, Fine Arts and Architecture Library (EDFAA) at the Nedlands campus. The UWA Library Catalogue can be accessed online at http://www.is.uwa.edu.au/

Borrowing

Postgraduate students may borrow an unlimited number of books, recordings or videos as well as an unlimited number of scores for a semester. Some items may have shorter loan periods such as 3-day loans or Reserve items but these are clearly marked. UWA students may also register to borrow from Edith Cowan, Curtin and Murdoch Universities.
