Rationale

Each musician is ultimately individually responsible for the quality of the technical and musical skills they bring to any musical situation. The individual practice of music is vital to acquiring and developing these skills. The ability to articulate a framework for practice and work consistently is crucial to any musician’s development and for establishing a pattern for lifelong learning.

Synopsis

Students develop a framework for productive, meaningful and relevant independent practice. Through classes, lessons and online activities, students are guided to work independently to establish and achieve their musical and technical goals.

Objectives

On completion of this course students will be able to:

  1. examine the skills and knowledge required for the individual practice of music;
  2. develop, research, evaluate and apply a framework for independent practice;
  3. apply the skills relevant to independent practice;
  4. work independently to develop their own individual practice and thereby their musical and technical skills;
  5. use reflection as an aid to practice and learning.
