Continuation of Semester I. This subject provides students with a forum in which to present performances of works-in-progress. Matters of direct relevance to the performance experience such as memorisation, the nature of the learning process, deliberate practice, performance anxiety, and awareness will be explored through discussion, reflection, practical demonstration, reading, listening and writing. The subject recognises research as a key element in musical and self-understanding.
