Principal Study (MMus) 4 (PERF6001)


Students will devise performance projects which build on the themes developed in Principal Study 1-3 and which expand the boundaries of the discipline of performance. While scope exists for the work of Principal Study 4 to continue that of Principal Study 1-3, students may, if they wish, develop projects in another area. Research and creative objectives and semester outline will be devised and approved in consultation between individual students, the supervisor/teacher and associate supervisor and the appropriate Chair of Unit.
