Teacher Licensure

Students interested in pursuing licensure in the field of music can combine their course work in music with a minor in education. In some instances course work in the major coincides with course work required for licensure; in other cases, it does not. Students wishing to pursue teacher licensure should consult the music department before the first semester. Further information about the minor in education and the Teacher Licensure program is available in other sections of the catalog, or consult Ms. Lawrence in the psychology and education department.

Licensure also requires a formal application as well as passing scores on the Massachusetts Test of Educator Licensure (MTEL) in both the literacy component and the subject matter component. Copies of the test objectives for the MTEL are available in the music department and in the Department of Psychology and Education.

Additional information about the Licensure Program, including application materials, can be found on the Teacher Licensure Program website.

Course Advice

First-Year Students

Introductory classes in fundamentals, music history and literature, and composition are offered for students with little or no experience; those with more experience may be able to exempt prerequisites and enter directly into the music theory or music history course sequence.

A first-year student interested in a music major or minor should take or exempt MUSIC-100 or MUSIC-131 (Rudiments with a lab component), so that she may enroll in MUSIC-231 in the spring semester of her first year. First-year students may also take MUSIC-102; individual performance study through the appropriate section of MUSIC-151; Ensembles; MUSIC-226, MUSIC-229, or a first-year seminar taught by Music faculty such as FYSEM-110DV or FYSEM-110TG.  Spring entrants should exempt MUSIC-100 when they arrive on campus, so that they may enroll in MUSIC-231.

Music Exemption Exams

Students who demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the rudiments of music will be exempted from the MUSIC-100 prerequisite for certain courses and from the MUSIC-100 requirement associated with individual performance studies (please see below). For information on exemption from other courses, please contact the department.

Spring. Credits: 4

We will examine how the brain simultaneously processes different aspects of visual and auditory stimuli, ask how this processing may affect the way we do art and music, and explore where these phenomena may occur in the brain. As we engage in discussion and hands-on activities, we will discover the commonalities between the arts and the sciences including practice, experimentation, exploration, innovation, and creativity.

Students will collectively research, program, rehearse, and perform an evening-length program of music from Shakespeare's Tempest.

Not Scheduled for This Year. Credits: 4

Drawing on musical traditions from different parts of the world and supplemented by workshops conducted by visiting professional musicians, the course explores the interdisciplinary approaches that inform how ethnomusicologists study the significance of music "in" and "as" culture. Topics covered will include ethnographic methods, the intersection of musicological and anthropological perspectives, the political significance of musical hybridity, applied ethnomusicology, and sound studies.

Performance Studies

Official registration for all performance courses may only be done on ISIS after successful completion of the audition process; at the audition students should be prepared to demonstrate their level of vocal or instrumental proficiency. All performance study is for academic credit. (See MUSIC-100 requirement below.)

The Department of Music offers private instruction in performance studies at three levels for areas listed. Students studying privately are encouraged to elect the 50-minute lesson but may, at their own option or when advised by the instructor, enroll for the 30-minute lesson.

Students will be placed according to the following order of priority: declared music majors and minors; first-, second-, and third-year students who demonstrate proficiency on their instrument at or above an upper elementary level, with order of placement determined by extent of experience and quality of performance; first-, second-, and third-year students who wish to begin their study of an instrument or voice, provided they enroll concurrently in MUSIC-100 or MUSIC-131; fourth-year students, with order of placement determined by extent of experience and quality of performance. Senior beginners must enroll concurrently in MUSIC-100 or MUSIC-131.

Applied music fees, grants-in-aid, and fee exemptions are described in the Tuition and Fees chapter. No refund of fee after tenth academic day of classes. For fees, please see the department website.

Students enroll with Mount Holyoke performance faculty if the instrument they wish to study is offered by the department. Enrollment is limited according to teacher availability, and permission of the instructor is required. Please consult the department for audition dates and times.

Music 100 Requirement

Because the Department of Music believes students enrolled in individual performance studies should have a thorough knowledge of the rudiments of music, enrollment will be contingent on exemption from or concurrent enrollment in MUSIC-100 or MUSIC-131 regardless of whether a student is enrolled at Mount Holyoke or another Five College institution.

The MUSIC-100 Exemption Examination is in two parts. In order to pass the exam, students must achieve scores of at least 75 percent on both the written and aural portions.

100 Level Performance Study

Successful completion of, or exemption from, MUSIC-100 allows up to 8 academic credits of individual performance study on one instrument at the 100 level.

200 Level Performance Study

Following successful completion of 8 credits of performance study at the 100 level on one instrument, the student automatically advances to study at the 200 level, for which there are no credit limitations. Students enrolled in study at the 200 level must participate in at least one public performance per semester. Earlier entry into the 200 level is with permission of instructor.

300 Level Performance Study

Usually taken only in the senior year. Students may advance to the 300 level of performance studies upon completion of MUSIC-232, one history course at the 200 level, recommendation of the instructor, and permission of the department chair. Four credits are granted for each semester of performance study at the 300 level. Students enrolled in one semester of study at the 300 level will be required to prepare a half-recital or its equivalent. Students enrolled in a full year of study at the 300 level must prepare one full recital program or its equivalent. (“Equivalent”: two half-recitals, or one-half recital plus other significant public performance.) More detailed information on performance study at the 300 level is available from the Department of Music office.
