Course Number: 420/6.0 P (Course Code Explanation)
Open To: B.Mus. and B.Mus./B.Ed. students
Area(s): Applied Music
Term(s): A, B
Continuation of MUSC 320/6.0.
NOTE Students who do not hold the prerequisite may audition for admission to this course. They must obtain a grade of A- in the jury examination component of MUSC 321/6.0 or MUSC 324/6.0 and receive recommendation of the jury.
This course involves private instrumental or vocal instruction for B.Mus. students who have successfully auditioned for admission to this stream. Each course consists of 23 individual weekly lessons (or an equivalent amount of time every fortnight). Weekly practice time must justify the full credit involved.
Evaluation of the course is based on work accomplished in the course of the year, assessed by the instructor in consultation with the area coordinator. Evaluation includes technical and interpretive development, application, motivation and attitude, as well as participation in studio recitals and other events organized by the School of Music. A significantly higher level of achievement (than in the MUSC x21 series) is expected, as reflected in level and quantity of repertoire, practice commitment and participation in appropriate events.
Students in MUSC 420 are required to enroll concurrently in MUSC 425 (Performance Recital), in which they perform a public recital in March or April in lieu of a jury.
The audition is held in the first week of classes in September.
