General Information

Music performance courses encompass studio and class lessons and are offered in voice, piano, organ, carillon, violin, viola, violoncello, string bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, percussion, saxophone, harpsichord and organ. These courses are primarily for music majors and are open to non-majors only by audition and instructor consent.

The student registering for the first time for music courses reports to the director of music in the School of Music, who designates a faculty member to audition and/or consult with the student and who assigns the student to the proper level and performance course number.

S-U grade options and auditing courses in music performance are not permitted.

Performance courses (1000 level) emphasize basic techniques. Music education, theory/composition, music history/literature and B.A. majors, secondary and non-majors take these courses in their first year.

Performance courses (2000 level) emphasize repertory and mastery of the basic techniques of the performing medium. Students majoring in performance will begin 2000 level courses in the first year.

Performance courses (3000 and 4000 level) are for advanced study. A student takes two semesters at the 3000 level. A full performance faculty jury exam is required for admission to 4000 level. Two semesters at the 4000 level are required of all performance and church music majors. Degree recitals must be presented at the University of Florida. All students accepted for music performance study must register and participate in an appropriate ensemble each semester of study. Consult the School of Music Student Handbook for further information on the ensemble policy.

The performer's certificate will be awarded at the discretion of the faculty to non-performance degree students. Students must be recommended by their performance teacher for the performer's certificate program at the beginning of their junior year.

Courses in performance, theory/composition, music history/literature and music education at the 3000-4000 level may be taken only after a student has achieved professional status by passing the musicianship assessment jury and the preprofessional performance jury. Other requirements include successfully completing musical styles, four semesters of ensemble (if required for degree) and four semesters of satisfactory recital attendance.

Because some students may need additional time to successfully complete the musicianship assessment jury and the preprofessional performance jury, students will be allowed to register for up to nine credits at the 3000 level prior to becoming a professional level music major. Consult the School of Music student handbook for a list of specific 3000/4000-level courses that can be taken before achieving professional level status.

Non-majors can only take music performance courses and certain others after an audition with the instructor. If the student is found to be acceptable to the studio, course will be available only on a space-available basis. Courses are department controlled and all students must see an academic advisor in music before registration.
