Performance Workshop (W3047)

15 credits, Level 5

Spring teaching

You prepare with your instrumental teacher, for a recital at the end of the year. Additionally, performers are asked to prepare programme notes for their recital and undertake a repertoire survey for their instrument/voice. Throughout the module critical perspectives on good recital practice are fostered through contribution to, and attendance at, weekly lunchtime recitals and occasional workshops. You are examined on your performance practice and programming skills.
