MUS 2721. Chamber Ensembles - Initial Semester, A

Groups of three to six students, formed by audition. With the guidance of a faculty coach, these groups delve into and perform select pieces from the chamber music repertory of the the past four hundred years. Some of these groups will be standard chamber ensembles (e.g., string quartets, piano trios, brass quintets); others will be formed according to student and repertoire demand. Rehearsals are arranged to suit the players' and coach's schedules.

MUS 2837. Intermediate Individual Performance Studies - 1st Semester Piano, A

The following provisions govern applied music lessons for credit: (1) Individual performance courses are intended for the continued study of instruments with which the student is already familiar. Students must take at least two consecutive semesters of study on the same instrument to receive one-half credit per semester and to receive the reduced rate. (2) One-half credit is granted for each semester of study. Grading is Credit/D/Fail. To receive credit, students must register for lessons at the beginning of each semester of study in the Office of the Registrar and the Department of Music. Note: Add/ drop dates for lessons are earlier than add/drop dates for other courses. The deadline to add lessons is one week from the start of classes, and the deadline to drop lessons is two weeks from the start of classes. (3) Admission is by audition only. Only students who are intermediate or beyond in the development of their skills are admitted. (4) Beginning with the second semester of lessons, students must attend and perform in an end-of-semester public performance. Repertory classes, Lunchbreak Concerts, and other designated music department venues all count as public performances. Such performances must be registered with the department coordinator to count for credit. (5) To receive credit for Individual Performance Studies, the student must complete an academic course in music (which may include Music 3811-3878) within the first year and a half of study, or by graduation, whichever comes first. (6) Students taking lessons for credit pay a fee of $560 for twelve one-hour lessons per semester. Junior and senior music majors and minors may take two half-credits free of charge. (7) Student Recitals. In most circumstances, a student is required to take Music 38113878 in order to perform a solo recital. In some cases, however, a student may be allowed to perform a recital without taking Music 3811-3878, subject to permission of the instructor, availability of suitable times, and contingent upon a successful audition in the music department. The performance date and accompanist should be established the semester before the recital is to take place.
