General Departmental Information

The Music Department of Central Washington University serves the academic community through offering of courses, cultural activities, and degrees relevant to the needs of its students. Within this comprehensive university, the Department functions as the component of a liberal arts institution that provides education in the musical arts.

The Department offers undergraduate curricula leading to the Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Arts degrees and graduate work leading to the Master of Music degree. The growing demand for the "Central Music Graduate" is a source of pride for the music faculty and an incentive for continued dedication to the training of young musicians. In addition to the proven excellence of our Music Teacher Education program, the Department provides quality training for the performer, composer/theorist, historian, and conductor.
The Department of Music is an institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).
All entering students who plan to pursue either a major or minor in the Department of Music must demonstrate their performance ability before a faculty committee. Based on this audition, the Music Department will determine the student's admissibility into a specific major or minor area. Auditions are scheduled for specific dates each year. However, other dates are available through prior scheduling. Information regarding audition dates, schedules, and repertoire requirements can be obtained by contacting the music office. Students who do not qualify for admission into the Department may be placed on departmental probation. This will allow them to enroll in some basic musicianship classes and to pursue applied study on either the group or the secondary level. Probationary students may use the quarter ending jury as an audition for reconsideration of their admission. No student will be allowed to graduate without removing the probationary status and accruing credits on the level of college applied study.

A keyboard proficiency requirement must be met by all Music majors. Students unable to demonstrate essential keyboard skills must enroll in Class Piano, MUS 154A I, II and III concurrently with MUS 144, 145 and 146, the 1st year Music Theory sequence. Students can demonstrate essential keyboard skills to any Piano Faculty member before the end of the first week of classes. Upper division transfer students not meeting the required keyboard proficiency may enroll in upper division courses only if concurrently enrolled in MUS 154A. If a student cannot meet the proficiency requirements at the conclusion of three quarters, he or she must continue to register for piano study until this requirement is displayed. Music Education majors will not be placed or scheduled for student teaching until this proficiency is completed. Piano Proficiency must be demonstrated by passing a Piano Proficiency exam. This exam is given during Finals week at the end of each quarter. A description of the exam is available in the Music Office.

All Music majors, including BM and BA degrees, must register for a major ensemble which is appropriate to their major performance area during each quarter of enrollment as a full time student. Piano and Guitar majors may, with permission of the applied instructor and approval of the Department Chair, substitute up to three quarters of chamber music experience (MUS 217, 417) for major ensemble credit. Music Education majors, during the quarter of student teaching, are exempt from this requirement. The major ensembles are Wind Ensemble, Choir, Chamber Choir, Symphonic Band, Marching Band, and University Orchestra. Only these ensembles will generate credit which will accrue for degree requirements.

All students majoring in Music, and those students who are non-majors and enrolled in secondary applied music study (MUS 171, 271, or 371), must attend the student recital hour on Tuesdays at 2 p.m., and attend faculty and student recitals and other university music functions in accordance with requirements set forth each quarter.

Any student who has been accepted into the Music Department as a Music major or Music minor will enroll in "Major Performance Area" applied instruction (MUS 164, 264, 364, 464, 564) in compliance with their degree requirements. Music major students pursuing study in a secondary applied area and non-music major students will enroll in Secondary Applied Area (Individual Instruction) (MUS 171, 271, 371) applied instruction. Enrollment for non-major performance area applied instruction will be available to students based on degree requirements and on a space available basis. Non-music major students must successfully complete an audition for a faculty committee to be considered for these lessons. An examination in performance (Jury) is required of all students who are enrolled in either "Major Performance Area" applied instruction or "Non-Major Performance Area" applied instruction at the conclusion of each quarter. Six hours practice per week is the minimum required for each 30 minutes of lesson time per week.

A theory placement examination is required for all Freshman Music students to determine their correct status in the theory program. This examination is given during the first class period of MUS 144. Transfer students who have not taken music theory courses must also take this examination.

Theory credits earned at accredited colleges and universities with a grade of C or better will be honored by the CWU Music Department, provided they reflect courses that have been deemed as equivalent in scope to those in the CWU curriculum. Students who have completed theory courses at a Community College and want to have these requirements waived must petition the Music Department. If these courses are accepted and the requirements waived, students must still honor the total credit requirements for the chosen degree. Transfer students whose theory courses from a Community College are accepted must also take a written diagnostic test in music theory during the first quarter in residence. Students will be informed as to their performance on the diagnostic test and advised of an appropriate course of action; this advisement is for the student's benefit, but will not result in additional course requirements.

Departmental Honors

Departmental honors in music may be awarded to the Music major with outstanding ability who has demonstrated superior musicianship and scholastic attainment. Admission to departmental honors program: The student must submit a letter of application to the Department Chair in the junior or senior year, stating: (a) the proposed honors project, date of completion, and name of the faculty advisor for the project;
