B. A maximum of 12.0 units may be from MUSC_Ensembles (i.e. 4 more ensemble courses may be taken beyond the core requirements of the Plan). Students may register and participate in a maximum of 3.0 units of MUSC_Ensembles (i.e. 2) per academic session.

B. Students who meet higher standards of performing ability, including those entering their first year, may audition in September for acceptance into the “double unit” Applied Study (performance) courses. In addition to their private lessons, students in these courses perform a public recital at the end of the year. Students who audition successfully register in MUSC 120 Applied Study I to IV (Performance) and MUSC 125 Applied Study I (Performance Recital) instead of MUSC 121 Applied Study I to IV (and similarly in upper years). The MUSCX25/6.0 courses may be used towards the MUSC Option components of the BMUS degree.

This required concert attendance accounts for 10% of the teacher’s component of the Applied Study mark at the end of the year.
D. By the end of the second year, students are expected to have attained the Minimum Degree Level in their instrumental or vocal applied study (a proficiency equivalent to that of Grade X of the Royal Conservatory of Music). Students who do not reach this level will be required to continue to study applied music, without additional credit, until this level is successfully achieved.
