Provisional acceptance into a major in music is based upon a combination of auditions, transcripts, entrance examinations, and/or interviews, depending upon the specific major. All entering students must audition in their declared principal applied area with the appropriate faculty. Final acceptance into any music program is based upon formal auditions in the appropriate applied and ensemble areas. Students wishing to change their major to performance after having been accepted into another major in music must proceed through a formal acceptance process for performance in the appropriate applied and ensemble areas. Additional information about applied music is available from the School of Music. Graduation requirements in applied music vary according to the student's degree and major. All music students will have their work in their principal applied music studies periodically reviewed by the faculty.

Entering freshmen may receive credit for college-level work in music accomplished prior to entering the University. This may be done through advanced standing examinations administered by the faculty of the School of Music during the first semester of the freshman year after the student has obtained permission from the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Advanced standing examinations will be administered only in the fields of applied music and music theory. In order to receive credit by an advanced standing examination the student must achieve a grade of not less than B on such examination.

The student must earn a minimum grade of C during each semester of freshmen-sophomore theory to qualify for advancement.

All students whose principal instrument is not keyboard must demonstrate keyboard proficiency as determined by the School.

All music majors, with the exception of those pursuing the degree Bachelor of Arts in Music, are required to enroll in an appropriate ensemble continuously each semester of full-time enrollment status. Refer to the curricular tables which follow and consult with a School of Music advisor for specific ensemble requirements pertaining to particular degree plans.

In addition, performance majors are required to present a full length senior recital. Piano performance majors with pedagogy emphasis are required to present a 3/4 length recital. Piano performance majors with chamber music and accompanying emphasis are required to present four recitals of standard accompaniment and chamber music repertoire. Permission to present each recital must be obtained from an examining jury at least two weeks prior to the recital.

Music composition majors are required to present a recital of their original compositions during the senior year. Permission to present the recital must be obtained from the composition faculty one semester prior to the recital.

All music majors must attend at least twelve weekly student recitals and at least twelve additional approved concerts or recitals per semester for six semesters.

*The secondary instrument consists of one semester of study on each of three different instruments, to be determined in consultation with the student's advisor. In general, each secondary instrument should be a member of a different instrumental family (string, woodwind, brass, percussion, voice), and these should be distinct from the primary instrument family, so that the student gains familiarity with the broadest variety of instruments.

**Continuance in the major of music composition requires a formal review and approval of all freshman and sophomore work. The principal criteria are: the completion of all academic requirements through the sophomore year and a grade average in music theory courses of no less than a B.

Recommended course: MUCP 3001.

Candidates for the Bachelor of Music degree with a major in music composition are required to present a recital of their original compositions during the senior year. Permission to present the recital must be obtained from the composition faculty one semester prior to the recital.
