In this unit students should develop critical analysis and writing skills through the construction of a performance journal. They will undertake some project-based assignments, participate in master classes and attend concerts to develop their breadth of understanding of concert and practice protocols. The unit involves participation in one-hour seminars where they have the opportunity to explore instrumental performance practices in depth with other students. Advanced Principal Study allocates advanced practice time for students to prepare final programs. On completion of this unit students should be able to demonstrably connect analytical, harmonic, stylistic, technical, interpretive and musical awareness to the preparation of their specific repertoire.
