Students must be registered for both Music Theory and Ear Training course sequences and an MUSE ensemble course.
V. Other Pertinent Information

Students meet with an instructor for a weekly 50-minute lesson. There is a music lesson fee for this course. Acceptance into Lesson 4 requires that students successfully perform and pass an MUSL211 jury examination before a Music faculty panel to demonstrate their competence in representative repertoire and technique that is commensurate with applied study at the prescribed collegiate level. Jury requirements vary by instrument and are published online by the Department of the Arts.

Students must successfully perform and pass a mandatory jury exam before a Music faculty panel at the conclusion of the semester.

Failure to demonstrate the prescribed level of musical competence at the jury exam, as evidenced by either inadequate performance of the required material or nonattendance of the jury exam itself, will constitute summary failure of the course, and a student so affected will be denied registration in the succeeding course level. Under such circumstances to continue in the MUSL111-series course sequence, the student must register for MUSL100 Preparatory Lesson and subsequently pass the associated jury examination.

MUSL111-series courses are not repeatable. A total of four (4) separate registrations, one each in MUSL111, MUSL112, MUSL211, and MUSL212, is permitted. A student may register for one and only one Lesson course in a given semester.
