Student at the piano

At the end of each semester, music majors are required to perform a juried performance for a faculty panel in order to evaluate their musical progress. The jury consists of approximately 10 minutes of music as assigned by your private instructor.

The faculty panel uses a rubric to evaluate the jury performance. The jury grade counts as 25% of the student’s private lesson grade for the semester. Students in any Bachelor of Music degree program must achieve a minimum score of 75% to pass. The passing score for students in the bachelor of Arts degree program is 65%. Students who fall below the minimum grade will be placed on probation by the department.
