PEC110: Advanced Music Practice

Advanced Music Practice gives conscientious and dedicated musicians time within the context of Exeter's academic program to devote to practicing.

Advanced Music Practice gives conscientious and dedicated musicians time within the context of Exeter's academic program to devote to practicing. Students are accepted by permission of the Music Department chair. Students meet at a common time in the afternoon. Most of the time is devoted to private practice under the supervision of the music faculty. Part of each day is reserved for a variety of physical activities, including cardiovascular exercise, core and flexibility training, and exercises to avoid repetitive-stress injuries. Students participating in Advanced Music Practice must be taking regular private lessons. Each student is required to consult with his or her private lesson teacher to develop a plan for using the practice time effectively. All students will participate in an end-of-term jury to demonstrate the progress they have made over the course of the term. Advanced Music Practice does not carry academic credit but meets the Physical Education requirement for the term. The Sports Option is not available to students participating in this program.
