    Frequently Asked Questions

    I don’t play the piano, is that a problem?

    Yes and no. All music majors and minors are required to pass piano proficiency. Students with previous piano experience have a definite advantage in preparing for this step. However, several beginning and intermediate piano classes are available to help students who have little or no piano background prepare for the piano proficiency exam.

    Do I have to do a solo recital?

    Yes. All music majors are required to do a senior recital. General music students are required to present a thirty minute recital on their applied instrument either first or second semester of their senior year.

    Music students are also required to perform a single piece on one of the several student recitals during the semester. Don’t worry! You’re applied teacher will help you select an appropriate piece when the time comes.
