Principal Study (MMus) 3 (PERF6000)


Students will prepare for the M Mus Recital during this semester working with the performance teacher/supervisor(s) and in consultation with the Chair of Unit. A staff accompanist will be available to work with the candidate in 8 hours of rehearsal and at the Recital where this is appropriate to the needs of the performance and approved in advance. The Recital will present the student's research through performance and will be integrated as appropriate with the candidate's Performance Thesis. The Critical Notes will document the aims of the Recital and its place in the candidate's research program, as well as discussing the music performed. It is possible to present the Recital and Critical Notes at any stage during the semester before the normal exam period if this is preferred and approved in advance.
