Students will be required to perform in a final student recital and must pass
a performance jury at the end of every term before moving on to the next term of study.
Students are expected to participate in chamber ensembles and are required to perform a minimum
of two times per term in the weekly music performance area recitals.
Students will demonstrate good tone production, solid technique, rhythmic precision, proper
performance practice, good musicianship and perform scales and arpeggios at required tempi.
