Extended Essay Writing Style?

My EE is due in a little over a week and I don't have much done. (I know, I know, I procrastinated too much. In my defense, the IB coordinators at my school screwed me over - long story).

My subject is music and I'm wondering if I should assume that the people scoring my essay will know what I'm talking about. Obviously they might not know much about the actual topic I've chosen, but should I define terms such as leitmotif and modulation? Any and all help would be appreciated, as the program at my school is extremely inefficient and I will have no contact with my supervisor until it's due.

I'd recommend treating them like an educated person that's capable of marking an EE but isn't actually in your subject area. So you'll have to make sure what you write is clear and you can't hide behind technical terms when making a point.
