Additional requirements for music majors:

  1. Pass the piano proficiency requirement of MUS 1000 by the end of the sophomore year, which would mark the conclusion of four consecutive semesters of piano. The proficiency requirement must be met before students begin their student teaching, which makes it necessary for students to continue to enroll in piano until the proficiency examination is passed. The elements of the proficiency requirement are as follows.
    • Harmonization/improvisation of simple accompaniments to melodies of 8 measures length using at least 3 triads (I, IV & V or V7) in block position and then with an arpeggiated bass pattern.
    • Transposition of the same melody to a key one-half or a whole step away with block chords.
    • Sight-reading of grade II piano music in which both hands are independent of each other.
    • Two memorized pieces of the level of Classical Era sonatinas.
    • One 4-part chorale-style piece played with music.
    • Major and harmonic minor scales and arpeggios, ascending and descending, played in all keys with correct fingerings, one octave hands together, and two octaves, hands separately, with chord progressions of I, IV, I, V, V7, I.

    2.   Pass a written departmental scales and key signatures test with a minimum grade of 70% at the conclusion of each semester of music theory in order to proceed to the next level of the music theory sequence

    3.   Present a performance recital in the major instrument of at least 45 minutes duration prior to student teaching

    4.   Attend and document 10 recitals each semester except while student teaching

    5.   Participate in at least one music area performance ensemble each semester in which the student is registered for 12 or more hours, except during student teaching

    6.   Participate in the MUS 2000 Music Seminar each Friday afternoon until graduation or semester of student teaching. A grade will be given upon the completion of MUS 4360 Senior Seminar.
