Department of Music

 

Department Chairperson:Mark A. Smith

Faculty :Naomi Copeland, Jane Florine, James Hendricks, William Jason Raynovich, Roxanne Y. Stevenson, Mark A. Sudeith, Pharez Whitted, Deborah Williams

The Department of Music offers the Bachelor of Music Education degree. The department offers courses to all students to broaden their understanding and enjoyment of music as a fine art. Completion of the Bachelor of Music Education degree qualifies students for an Initial Type 10 Illinois Special Certificate with a high school endorsement in music for grades 9-12, and an elementary endorsement in music for grades K-8. Certification requires the successful completion of the Illinois Certification Tests of Basic Skills, Music, and Assessment of Professional Teaching (Special K-12). The program meets Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) standards for music education.

Admission to the department of music is contingent upon the successful completion of an instrumental, piano, or vocal audition and a written music theory placement examination. Entering students who do not meet the minimum standards to be a music major may be admitted conditionally. Students must remove identified deficiencies within the first year of matriculation before being fully admitted as a music major.

During each term of the school year weekly periods are set aside for student convocations and recitals. All students are required to participate in these either as performers or auditors. All music majors must register for MUSM 1800 during each Fall and Spring semester in which classes are being taken. Failure to complete this requirement will prevent the student from graduating. The only registration exceptions will be the following:

  • Students attending only night classes.
  • Students who are student teaching.

Students who have no keyboard experience will be expected to acquire some proficiency in piano prior to completion of 60 credit hours.

All students who qualify may participate for credit, or without credit, in the various performance groups sponsored by the department. All students are encouraged to audition as early as possible for scholarship and financial aid consideration.
