This article examines the potential role of the learner in the development of a music performance profile and, in particular, the learner's input towards this process. Traditionally, assessment of music performance is conducted externally, and emanates from musical experts who provide evaluation and critical commentary, upon which students base their judgements about the success or otherwise of their development. This research traces the introduction of the Practice Journal as a key strategy within the music degree at James Cook University. Such a methodology is designed to enhance students' self-critical reflection skills and understanding of the internal processes towards performance. Analyses of journals are conducted annually, both as evaluation of learning and as basis for revisions to the journal for the subsequent academic year.
