Mode of study

Some of this module's study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, audio and video clips. Online materials occasionally include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Printed materials are provided for most of the module, but audio and video clips, together with use of specialist computer software, form a core part of the learning materials.

Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of learning events including face-to-face tutorials. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online (or other) alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning. 

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain visual content including a large number of musical scores. Reading and interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed throughout the module. Scores are available in PDF and .sib format so students may be able to convert or adapt these according to their needs. Alternative assignments can be provided where a sight impairment will compromise use of visual content. 


This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system, and an End-of-Module Assessment submitted online. 


You will receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment. 


All University modules are structured according to a set timetable and you will need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. You will be supported in developing these skills. 

Specialist software

This module uses specialist software and symbols that are not covered by standard accessibility tools. The module materials and assessment ask you to make use of Sibelius music notation software, and may not be fully accessible as a result. Alternative assignments are available and students may be able to convert or modify Sibelius files according to their needs.
