New module approved for next term!
I'll be teaching a new module at NUS next term on 'The Psychology of Music Performance'! Really looking forward into diving into this material with some great students at the YST Conservatory of Music. Here's the module description: The module is tailored for musicians, presenting findings from the Psychology of Music and Performance Science that can be used to enhance one’s practice and performance of music. Topics include efficient practicing, learning and memory, mental rehearsal strategies, performance anxiety, and more. It is a hands-on, project-based learning module, featuring a mixture of traditional lectures with group discussions, blogging with peers, and application of the ideas through individual projects centered around practice and/or performance techniques. The module is meant to foster critical enquiry and reflection, giving students relevant knowledge and hands-on experience to help them become better musicians.
