II. Course Objectives
To develop and acquire: correct sitting position, left and right hand technique, musicianship, learn studies, exercises, repertoire, and practice technique and routine
III. Course Requirements
This course requires the student to practice one to three hours a day (195/395-1 hr., 196/396-2hrs., 197/397-3hrs).
Each student is required to attend eight concerts per music dept. handbook
There is no textbook. The student is required to purchase all music studied.
V. Attendance Policy
Since we only meet once a week attendance is very important. More than two absences will result
in having your grade lowered one letter for each absence beyond two. You must attend
Departmental Seminars (last Tuesday of each month and can be counted for concert attendance).
All students are required to perform in a jury for the music faculty at the end of the semester. The grade from the jury will count towards 25% of the final grade.
I will determine the remaining 75% of your grade based upon effort and achievement. I will present
progress reports upon request.
