All music majors/minors must perform a jury each semester of their applied study. Music faculty members provide written feedback to students using a jury sheet. Students may review their jury sheets during the next semester with their applied instructor. All jury sheets are filed in each student’s portfolio and may be reviewed at any time.
The jury provides the music faculty an opportunity to hear and discuss the progress of every student in the program. Students are expected to demonstrate consistent progress in their jury performances.
To learn more about juries and the jury process, please consult page three (3) of the department handbook.
The jury that takes place at the end of the sophomore year is called the “sophomore barrier.” Music faculty will decide at this time whether a student is permitted to continue with their degree work in music.
To learn more about the sophomore barrier and its process, please consult page five (5) of the department handbook.
The following music degrees have a recital requirement:
- Bachelor of Music in Performance (Junior & Senior recital)
- Bachelor of Music in Music Education (Senior recital)
- Bachelor of Arts in Music (Senior recital)
- Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theatre (see Musical Theatre Senior Project in the department handbook)
Those pursuing a degree in Arts Management or a Minor in Music may elect to perform a recital, but it is not required for the degree.
To learn more specifics about recitals and its process, please consult pages six through seven (6-7) of the department handbook.
The Music Department Handbook provides music majors and minors with a description of policies and procedures adopted by the music faculty at Adrian College. This handbook is updated periodically (last update: August 2012).
