- Upon acceptance into the minor, students are required to take Fundamentals of Music Theory.
- Music Minors are required to take supporting coursework or perform in an ensemble in conjunction with private lessons. However, paths through the minor can vary according to when the student enters, and the number of credits available in their schedules.
- Some suggested paths are available in the minor schematics. Students should work with their minor advisor to determine the best route.
- Scheduling guidelines for specific requirements include:
Performance requirements (private lessons and ensembles) should be fulfilled in consecutive semesters, though not necessarily concurrently. Lessons and ensembles are available every semester, so Music Minors may start their performances sequence anytime.
Theory: The Fundamentals of Music Theory (fall only) and Musical Styles should be fulfilled in the fall semester immediately after a student is accepted into the music minor, if not before. (Musical Styles is available in spring semester, but only on a limited basis.) Music Theory I should be taken in the following spring semester.
Aural Skills I and II should be taken consecutively. Aural Skills I in fall and II in spring provide the greatest flexibility.
Music History I and II should be taken consecutively.
Please note that Music Minors do not take Performance Repertoire and Pedagogy, nor do they perform semester juries or recitals.
