Successful completion of senior recital requirements is necessary for passing grade in this course. This course is repeatable. Music Performance majors only. Fall, Spring Updated 18 April 2008 LEARNING OUTCOMES: Students enrolled in applied music will be able to demonstrate the following skills: • Perform in a musically expressive manner and demonstrate the proper characteristics involved in, and related to, musical production. • Familiarity with musical literature and stylistic characteristics. • Collaboration with other musicians and the use of proper rehearsal and performance techniques with accompanists. • Preparation for future career opportunities. RATIONALE: I. Under the current system, applied lessons still must be scheduled manually. Students are required to complete a course add form, submit it to the administrative assistant, who in turn sends the completed forms to the registrar. The above changes will enable the Registrar to bring the registration procedure for applied lessons in line with current college procedures. II. There is frequent confusion during registration with the current applied lesson numbering system. As a result, students register for incorrect course numbers and/or credits. Revising the course prefixes and titles will clarify the applied course sequence. III. Additionally, there are also frequent errors made when listing applied lessons on student transcripts causing undue stress and extra work for students and advisors. Revising the course prefixes and title will clarify the application of the course sequence on transcripts. RESOURCES: No additional resources required. ADVISORY OPINIONS: No advisory opinions needed.
