It's a joke how easy this unit is. Most of the lectures are about how to do the essay or how to write your exams, and the other lectures aren't even examinable. The auditions were also super fun as well, and you just banged out some music and enjoy doing it. The performance wasn't too bad, though because we had to move to online classes, it was 10 times easier as we just recorded our performance, so your mileage may vary with this. The journal wasn't too bad; just follow the example ones of the lectures and you'll be fine. The essay looks intimidating at first, but is actually quite easy if you know how to do research and you have a solid journal to work from. Overall, highly recommended, not too difficult HD.

I agree that this unit was very fun, relaxing and interactive and it is a good unit if you want to have fun. I chose to do the world percussion ensemble, and I found it quite enjoyable. Despite this, this unit is not as easy as one would think. I barely scraped through a HD in this unit. The written essay that you must write up is quite hard as it is hard to find things to write about and feedback on the essay is very brief and broad. This is not a unit that you can cruise through just because it is fun and unique.

I took this unit because I wanted an easy HD. I agree with everyone else that this unit is really fun and relaxing, but definitely not an easy HD. One of the assessed works is an essay that is being marked very harshly with almost no explanation on how I got my mark. I got 78% despite working it for two full days and spent another three days to proofread it. I ended up with 81% for my final mark, bless them for giving me 85% for the participation component. If you are looking for a fun and relaxing unit where you can bang bongos or play ukulele with your friends while still managed to pass, then this is for you, but if you are looking for a GPA booster unit, then don't take this unless you are confident enough with your writing abilities to do well in the essay since your grade mainly depends on it (40%). If you are looking for an easy HD, I suggest you take a level one marketing unit 1203/1204 instead of this. I think I should mention that the unit coordinator the professor doesn't reply to emails. I only asked him to provide me with some more feedback for the essay as the feedback that was given to me was simply the good points. He didn't even bother replying. I guess being a full professor doesn't mean that you neglect your students.

I agree with the comment below that different instructors mark performance and participation differently. I was marked quite harshly on those two, got a 78% for my essay and ended with an overall of 75%. My essay themes were quite similar to the sample essay, that might be the reason why I didn't HD the essay component. Choose this unit if you have interest in the ensemble and would be okay if you ended up with a D.

Depending on the ensemble you take, you are marked differently (depending on the instructor). I was lucky that I did well in the essay, because my ensemble director was a very harsh marker. Since you are given a ‘group mark’, if you have a lot of slackers in your ensemble you may not do as well. I put in so much effort into practice but unfortunately that happened to be the case (I guess you could say this about most group projects anyway). I managed to do well in the essay, so that left me with a flat out borderline HD thankfully. I would say to be mindful of the ensemble you take and to put in effort into the essay in case things don’t go as planned. Would defs say that I’m fearful of taking future ensemble units now

I was in the ukulele ensemble. I'm dumb and still managed to get 91% for this unit! Do it for an easy HD. Pros: Fun, chill, EASY Cons: Literally nothing

A very relaxed and fun unit. Make sure you follow the recommended essay structure. Don't worry about ensemble performance, every class gets a flat 80. Your grade is basically determined by your essay mark. Highly recommend you do this unit for summer, very worth it.

Make sure you write a lot for the journal entries, and focus on certain frameworks in the entries, makes writing the essay a breeze. The essay may perhaps be marked harshly, but as long as you put some time into, and NOT do it in one day, it is definitely 'HD'able.' Look at the sample essays you get, and have a CLEAR structure, with good referencing. After everything I did, I managed to barely get a HD in my essay. Thus, you really need a clear and well-thought out structure, with focus on relevant frameworks. I recommend having 3 frameworks to talk about, that's only around 300-400 words your'll have to dedicate to it in the essay, thus you won't run out of things to write about for each one.

Definitely the best unit I have done at uni! Classes are fun and engaging, and the essay isn’t too difficult
