The purpose of each of the independent recital preparation units of study is to develop the range of skills that musicians must possess to prepare them to be professional performers particularly in an ensemble situation. Students will receive training/instruction in all aspects of collaborative recital preparation. Through recital repertoire chosen by the student and the principal study teacher at the beginning of the semester, students will learn practical application of elements of preparation and performance including appropriate recital structure, issues in collaborative performance, strategies for improvement in accuracy of rhythmic and intonation control, ethics and professional conduct of a musician. Students must abide by the recital preparation attendance and rehearsal policy of the Ensemble Studies Unit.
