    This unit explores performance in practical, theoretical and philosophical terms, asking the questions: What is Performance? Why do I perform? How do I prepare for a performance? How do I connect with my audience? What do I want to achieve through my performance? How can I make my performance more persuasive?

    In practical tutorials, students will develop performance projects of their own in music or other media (presentation, speech, spoken report, demonstration).
