# Students entering the School of Music in a non-performance degree will take two credits of private lessons each semester until they are accepted into the performance degree. Students entering the performance degree prior to the sophomore year will substitute music electives for any missing lessons study.

+ Two semesters may be fulfilled by participating in other major ensembles (see p. 422).

** Brass students may substitute two semesters of Brass Choir (at 0.5 credit each semester) for 1 credit of Chamber Music. Percussion students take 2 credits of Percussion Ensemble.

++ Students may fulfill the requirement for Fundamentals of Music Theory by scoring 84 percent on a placement exam administered by the Department of Music Theory, History, and Composition. Students who score below 84 percent on the exam must take the course, and they take the lower number of music electives.
