Core Music Ensemble:
Music Education majors are required to be in at least one large music ensemble appropriate to the student’s concentration (MUS 180 , MUS 183 , MUS 184 , MUS 185 , MUS 186 , MUS 187 ) during each semester they are in residence, excepting the student teaching semester (7 hours). Keyboard and guitar students may substitute up to 4 hours from MUS 130 , MUS 182 . Only one large ensemble per semester may be credited toward the degree.
In addition, no credit toward music major requirements will be granted for MUS 105, MUS 106 and/or MUS 115.
All music majors must pass the piano proficiency examination and the listening repertory examinations, as described in the latest edition of the Department of Music Student Handbook. All students are expected to make regular progress toward completion of those requirements. Students are required to enroll in, and successfully complete MUS 242 (1 credit hour) in order to pass the piano proficiency (piano majors may substitute a secondary applied in lieu of MUS 242 .)
