Advising Notes for Bachelor of Music – Voice:

  • Incoming music majors and minors must take the Music Theory Assessment (usually when auditioning for the program). Students receiving a score below 60 are strongly advised to take MUS 110 prior to MUS 111.
  • Incoming students should determine piano placement with Dr. Hayashida. The student may place out of part or all of the class piano sequence, or be advised wait until enrolled in MUS 111 to begin the sequence.
  • Students may audit ensemble if the schedule has too many hours for a particular semester. Voice principals must take MUS 102 (Concert Choir) four semesters, usually during the freshman and sophomore years.
  • The voice faculty recommends that vocalists choose THE 225 to satisfy the Fine Arts Area of Inquiry.
  • This mock-up plan assumes an 18-hour minor. A minor with a different number of hours will require adjustment.
  • It is recommended that voice majors participate in MUS 417 Chamber Opera during at least one fall semester.
  • All flagged courses are represented within requirements of the major EXCEPT the cultural awareness abroad and the cultural awareness at home flags. The student should choose a course within the core or his/her minor that has a cultural awareness abroad flag and a cultural awareness at home flag.
  • While only MUS 204 is required in Opera and Musical Theatre Workshop sequence, the voice faculty recommends that students take MUS 104/304/404 for additional performance experience in subsequent spring semesters.
  • Although only 13 hours of applied study is required, the voice faculty recommends that the student take voice for the full 2 hours of credit every semester.
  • There are 20-22 upper-level hours represented on the above model (depending upon how many upper-level hours of applied study the student pursues). The student must include 17-19 upper-level hours within the core, electives, or his/her minor in order to meet the 39 upper-level hours requirement, and the student should note that in the Foundations and Core Program he/she must still take 200-level or higher courses in four out of the five areas of inquiry.

  • Students may audit (AU) ensemble if the schedule has too many hours for a particular semester.  Voice principals must take MUS 102 or 101 each semester.
  • The voice faculty recommends that if a BME vocal major has elective hours available, he/she take THE 225.
  • The voice faculty also recommends that if a BME vocal major has elective hours available, he/she take additional spring semesters in the MUS 104/204/304/404 sequence.

Full details on music and education advising recommendations regarding these hours are here: http://www.georgetowncollege.edu/mus/wp-content/blogs.dir/63/files/2012/03/B.M.E.-Outline-of-200-Field-Hours-Requirement.docx
  • The music faculty recommends that you regularly compare your academic record on my.georgetowncollege.edu with both the curriculum contract and the suggested four-year plan, as there may be semesters where substitutions must be made.  The faculty also recommends that you stay in close touch with your applied music teacher and/or another faculty member in the Music Department as well as a faculty member in the Education Department regarding your course selection and overall academic progress.

  • Students may audit ensemble if the schedule has too many hours for a particular semester.  Instrumental principals must take MUS 103 (Orchestra) or MUS 105 (band).
  • This mock-up plan assumes an 18-hour minor.  A minor with a different number of hours will require adjustment.
  • All flagged courses are represented within requirements of the major EXCEPT the cultural awareness abroad and the cultural awareness at home flags.  The student should choose a course within the core or his/her minor that has a cultural awareness abroad flag and a cultural awareness at home flag.
  • Although only 13 hours of applied study is required, the music faculty recommends that the student take applied music for the full 2 hours of credit every semester.

There are 20-22 upper-level hours represented on the above model (depending upon how many upper-level hours of applied study the student pursues).  The student must include 17-19 upper-level hours within the core, electives, or his/her minor in order to meet the 39 upper-level hours requirement, and the student should note that in the Foundations and Core Program he/she must still take 200-level or higher courses in four out of the five areas of inquiry.

Applied Music: Except for students registered for MUS 160, applied students must participate in a primary ensemble in order to study privately each semester of study. The performance ensemble should be reflective of the student’s major instrument. Further information is provided below. Applied music courses may not be audited.

Ensembles: All Music Majors (B.A., B.M., and B.M.E.) and minors, as well as electives receiving music or discretionary scholarships, are required to participate in a primary ensemble each semester of residence except the semester of student teaching, where applicable. The performance ensemble must be reflective of the student’s performing medium (i.e., instrumental, piano, or vocal). Primary Ensembles are Chorale (MUS 101), Concert Choir (MUS 102), and Symphonic Band (MUS 105). Secondary ensembles include Chapel Brass (MUS 106B), Chamber Ensemble (MUS 106A), Jazz Ensemble (MUS 108), and Handbells (MUS 109). Participation in Concert Choir is required of all voice majors and minors. Participation in Chorale as an additional ensemble is optional. NOTE: The Fighting Tiger Pep Band is an extension of MUS 105.

 

Piano Proficiency: Majors in the B.A., the B.M., and the B.M.E. degrees are required to meet the standards of piano proficiency. This requirement may be satisfied by examination or by successfully completing the four-semester Class Piano (MUS 155-158) sequence. All music majors must have the piano proficiency completed by the end of the junior year, and prior to student teaching, if applicable.

Recital Hour: Monthly recitals afford opportunity for the development of performance skills in a public setting. Excluding the first semester of study, at the discretion of the studio professor music majors are required to perform in their major area at least once during each semester of residence. Music minors are encouraged to perform at least once during the academic year. These requirements may be adjusted at the discretion of the applied study professor. Music majors and minors must attend a specified number of recitals and concerts each semester, including all student recital hours.

Organ Students: Students desiring to study organ must demonstrate, by audition, keyboard facility equivalent to five years of piano before beginning organ lessons. Organ majors or minors should show ability to perform on the piano pieces equal in difficulty to the simpler Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn sonatas and Bach two-part inventions. Students deficient in piano facility will be asked to enroll in private piano study to develop necessary facility for organ study.
