This capstone course for graduating seniors prompts students to think reflectively about their practice and engagement as artists in society through the lens of their experience at The New School. In looking back at the evidence of their work, as well as forward towards their professional lives beyond graduation, students will discuss, write about, and demonstrate through recital performance their visions as artists and professionals in the music world. Students will develop artistic statements and work on inquiry-based research projects. This course is also a space where students will discuss their plans for their Senior Recital, with a focus on who they are as artists and how to articulate their artistic ideals verbally, musically, and in written form. Students will work individually and in groups to develop and share intellectual and creative paths to future career opportunities in music. Senior Seminar aims to foster dialogue and strengthen community within the graduating cohort, support seniors in developing presentations of their work through portfolios and recitals, and forge meaningful connections to professional engagement beyond their undergraduate study.
