I've always thought of the word 'Practice' in the site name 'Musical Practice & Performance' as alluding to musical practices and music practitioning, rather than practicing an instrument or practicing for a performance through exercises and rehersals.
How do you conceive the word in the context of this site's name?
How do you think_ most people_ (including non-native english speakers) conceive the word in the context of this site's name?
Which meaning is the intended?
The musical practices-meaning I think includes not only practicing your instruments and performances but such things as composing and song writing, orchestrating, arranging, producing, theory, history, musical acoustics, etc. Topics that are all on-topic here as far as I understand. This I think is good. However if people tend to read 'Musical Practice & ..." as the more narrow exercise and rehearsal-meaning of the word practice then I think that is unfortunate since in that case a large portion of the site scope is not conveyed very clearly. I know there have been naming discussions and I don't necessarily mean to start that up again. As a non-native english speaker I'm mostly just curious of how the word 'Practice' is conceived as per my questions above.
