Through its Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Arts degree programs, the Music Department offers its majors high-quality instruction and performance opportunities to prepare them for careers and/or advanced study in such areas as public school music teaching, performance, music theory or musicology, and studio teaching, as well as for the wide range of opportunities that exist in the music field. By completing a minor in Music, students can gain not only personal satisfaction but knowledge and experience that can be of value as they pursue a chosen career. The Music Department also offers elective certificates in Accompanying, Jazz, and Music Business.

The Department sponsors a variety of performing ensembles, which are open to all university students. Vocal groups include the Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Women’s Chorale, Meistersingers (Men's Chorus), Vocal Jazz, and Opera Workshop. The Department also collaborates with the Theatre/Dance Department in an annual musical theatre production of an opera, operetta, or Broadway musical. Instrumental groups include the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Whitewater Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Concert Band, Marching Band, Jazz Bands, Brass Choir, Flute Choir, Clarinet Choir, Trombone Choir, Percussion Ensemble, SONICT (new music ensemble), and chamber groups. All provide rich and varied musical experiences and the opportunity to meet and perform with many talented musicians.

The UW-Whitewater Music Department has been fully accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music since 1977. Prospective music majors may find application materials, audition requirements, and a schedule of audition on the Music Department website at academics.uww.edu/CAC/Music/.

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS AND DEPARTMENTAL POLICIES

Auditions

Students desiring to major or minor in music must pass an audition in their primary performing area. If this cannot be completed before initial registration, music major status will be conditional pending a successful entrance audition. Minors may enroll for applied music study (lessons) only with the permission of instructor and department, but applied study is not necessary to the completion of the minor.

Waivers

Entering majors or minors may, through the Advanced Placement Examination, be waived from Music Theory I (MUSC 151), Music Theory II (MUSC 152) and Aural Skills I (MUSC 153), depending on AP scores. Total units required for graduation, however, remain unchanged.

Note: to non-music majors: The one-unit instrumental and vocal ensembles may be repeated. Though all such music ensemble units earned will appear on your transcript, no more than six will be applied toward graduation. All ensembles, except MUSC 169 Marching Band, carry General Education ARTS (GA) credit. MUSC 169 carries Physical Education (GP) credit.

Other Requirements - Music Department Handbook

The Music Department Handbook contains important information which, due to space limitations, is not printed in the Catalog. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with its contents. The Handbook is updated as policies change or are added. All enrolled majors and minors - regardless of admission date-are bound by policies outlined in the most recent revision of this Handbook. This handbook may be found at http://academics.uww.edu/CAC/Music/Handbook.

Applied Music Study: Terminology and Policies

The term “Primary Performing Area” refers to the student’s main performing medium - the one in which he/she must pass an entrance audition in order to be accepted as a music major, will receive instruction, and will be expected to maintain satisfactory progress over the course of study. For applied study in the Primary Performing Area, courses are arranged by level (for example, MUSC 160, MUSC 260, MUSC 360, and MUSC 460, in the case of instrumental instruction), which normally correspond to the freshman through senior years of enrollment.

Ordinarily a music major will have only one Primary Performing Area and will not change that area during the course of study. If a change is desired, the student must reaudition in the new performing area, and if successful, would be placed at the first term freshmen level for lessons in the new area. This change must have the consent of a) the department chairperson, b) the appropriate applied music area coordinator(s), and c) the two applied music instructors involved.

Applied music study (class or private, required or elective) required by a student's curriculum is termed “Secondary” or “Non-Primary” study. In the case of private instruction, the course numbers MUSC 126, MUSC 127, MUSC 128, MUSC 129, MUSC 326, MUSC 327, and MUSC 328 apply to such secondary study.

Elective applied study is available for music minors, majors choosing to study a second area, majors who want to study beyond the curricular requirements, or non-music students; however, "elective" lessons (MUSC 120, MUSC 121, or MUSC 122) are available only by consent of the department chair, and these lessons will cost the student an additional fee above tuition.

Units: For all private applied study, a half-hour of instruction per week will receive one unit, with a maximum of one hour of instruction for two or more units. A minimum of five hours of individual practice per week are required for each unit taken.

Writing Proficiency Requirement

In order to pass the writing requirement as a music major, students do one of the following: 1) achieve a grade of B or better in a required paper in one of the following courses: MUSC 438 (Medieval Music), MUSC 445 (Renaissance Music), MUSC 447 (Music of the Classical Period), MUSC 448 (Music of the Romantic Period), MUSC 450 (Survey of World Musics), MUSC 455 (Form and Analysis), or MUSC 463 (Music After 1900), 2) take and pass the writing portion of the PPST (required for all music majors with an emphasis in music education), or 3) pass ENGLISH 370 (Advanced Composition). Students may attempt to pass the writing requirement only once within a single course, but may attempt it again by taking other courses listed above. Students must notify the instructor of the course in writing that they will attempt to pass the writing proficiency.

MAJORS/EMPHASES

The Music Department offers two undergraduate major programs, the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Music (BM). Five emphases are possible under the Bachelor of Music program: Music Performance, Music History-Theory, Choral Music Education, Instrumental Music Education, and General Music Education.
