Students are expected to maintain a regular schedule of rehearsals throughout the semester.
This unit continues the work of the earlier Ensemble Skills units. In the second year students consolidate the processes already introduced through the research, practice, preparation and performance of new repertoire. Conservatorium students are expected to keep a rehearsal chart 'book'/journal that details the strategies chosen throughout the semester in rehearsal to improve performance.
