Students are expected to maintain a regular schedule of rehearsals throughout the semester.
This unit introduces students to the skills required for successful performance in ensemble music. The content focuses on the building of ensemble expertise and development of an effective methodology for the preparation and practice required to facilitate professional behaviour and demeanour. Conservatorium students are expected to keep a rehearsal chart 'book'/journal that details the repertoire and strategies chosen throughout the semester in rehearsal to improve identified performance issues.
