All non-elective applied lesson students in the instrumental division will attend the studio class offered by the instrumental applied faculty. These studio classes will be offered on Friday afternoons from 1:00-1:50 in the Redwine Band Room and afford the students the opportunity to perform before peers and instructors for feedback and suggestions for musical improvement. Each student should be prepared to perform in the weekly studio class as assigned by the instructor. If a student has to miss studio class he/she must seek approval from his/her instructor prior to the absence.
Students enrolled in elective applied lessons will participate in studio classes only as assigned by the instructor.
A jury examination is a brief performance venue in which a student performs for the instrumental music faculty. Each student taking non-elective applied lessons is required to perform a jury at the end of each semester of applied study. Students performing recitals before mid-term may not be required to perform a jury at the discretion of the instructor. Students performing recitals after midterm are not required to perform a jury. Elective students are also expected to perform a jury, but exceptions to this policy may be made at the discretion of the instructor.
Each jury member will record comments and a grade for each performer. The semester grade will be assigned by the student's instructor, but that grade may not be more than one grade above or below the jury panel average grade. Final grades will be based on weekly lessons (40%), studio class/GSR attendance/performance (10%), the scale jury (15%), and the final jury performance (35%).
Students will prepare repertoire sheets that provide a comprehensive list of the repertoire studied that semester. Repertoire sheets must be computer-generated from the online template and four copies should be brought to the jury.
All students enrolled in non-elective private lessons will be required to perform a scale jury at mid-semester during the weekly private lesson according to the following guidelines:
Freshmen (first semester): 12 Major Scales, 12 Natural Minor Scales
Freshmen (second semester): 12 Major Scales, 12 Natural Minor Scales, 12 Melodic Minor Scales
Sophomore, Junior, Senior: 12 Major Scales, 12 Natural Minor Scales, 12 Melodic Minor Scales, 12 Harmonic Minor Scales
Additionally, the chromatic scale (with ranges assigned by the instructor), arpeggios, modes, and any other scales may be required by the student's instructor.
Each student enrolled in non-elective instrumental applied lessons will be assigned an accompanist. The accompanist will attend three lessons during the semester as scheduled by the private instructor. The student is responsible for scheduling three additional rehearsals with the accompanist that will take place outside the lesson time to prepare for performance in studio classes, GSR performances, and one jury each semester. Each private instructor should monitor the activities of the student and accompanist to ensure a fair arrangement which allows for the successful completion of all assigned works. The accompanist is paid for these services by the University with fees assessed the voice or instrumental student at the time of registration. The voice or instrumental student is expected to pay the accompanist directly for any additional work desired. Accompanist changes after the first week of classes are strongly discouraged and require the Dean's approval. However, both the students and accompanists are encouraged to confirm that the Fine Arts Office has the correct assignment recorded. Students and accompanists should report any problems to the applied instructor who is responsible for either resolving the matter or reporting it to the Dean.
Students enrolled in elective private lessons are not allowed to have accompanists. They are also not charged an accompanist fee at the time of registration.
|1 Credit Hour||2 Credit Hours||3 Credit Hours|
|Freshman||3 selections||4 selections||6 selections|
|Sophomore||4 selections||5 selections||7 selections|
|Junior||5 selections||6 selections||8 selections|
|Senior||5 selections||6 selections||8 selections|
Extended works and more difficult works may be counted as multiple works at the discretion of the instructor. Also, technical studies may count towards the repertoire requirements at the instructor's discretion. This practice is discouraged once a student reaches Junior-Level study.
Secondary Performance Area
The secondary applied music study requirement for instrumental principals is fulfilled by completing Class Piano I, II, and III.
The music major with an instrumental secondary applied area will be required to meet the following requirements on the secondary instrument by the end of the third semester of study:
Scales: 12 Major, and 12 Natural Minor; rhythm: quarter notes; quarter note=120 m.m.
Repertoire: Successfully perform at least one solo of appropriate difficulty each semester in the instrumental studio class; the solo should be representative of freshman- and sophomore-level repoertoire.
Sight-Reading: The student will demonstrate the ability to perform music at sight on the secondary instrument by the end of the third semester of study.
