Introduction

The College of Music, among the largest in the nation, offers a comprehensive musical environment and unlimited opportunities for the pursuit of excellence in the musical arts for talented and dedicated musicians. The breadth of the musical experience includes the study and performance of the extended gamut of Western art music, the music of global cultures, and the creative contributions of contemporary jazz and the electronic/experimental media.

The depth of the instruction is provided by a faculty of internationally acclaimed performers, composers, scholars, and educators who are able to share their knowledge, skills, and insights with the next generation of musicians, from the baccalaureate to the doctoral and artist levels. The entire program is enhanced by the holdings of the UNT Music Library, the largest and most comprehensive collection among universities in the South and Southwest. Graduates of the College of Music hold positions of leadership and influence throughout the nation in the areas of concert, opera, symphony, and jazz performance, in higher education and scholarship, and in public school music education. The College of Music, with its wealth of campus concert experiences and varied instructional programs, is a unique asset in the cultural and intellectual life of the university community; in turn, its effectiveness is enhanced by being part of a large, comprehensive university.

The College of Music is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music [11250 Roger Bacon Drive, Suite 21 Reston, VA 20190; (703) 437-0700].

Admission Requirements

Freshman and Transfer Admission

Admission to the College of Music is contingent on clear admission to the university.

Those students who intend to be music majors must qualify by audition on their principal instrument or voice. Preference will be given to applications received by April 1, 2004. For additional procedures and opportunities, please contact the College of Music. The student should perform standard classical works. Prospective jazz studies majors should be prepared to audition with both classical and jazz repertoire.

Those students unable to audition in person may submit a recording representative of their performance abilities.

If a student fails to gain unconditional admission but shows promise, the faculty may grant conditional admission, subject to re-audition and evaluation at the end of the first semester. Permission may be granted to take applied music at reduced credit until the audition is passed.

Students planning to major in composition may begin the undergraduate program through open enrollment in Beginning Composition I (see "Supplemental Information for the Bachelor of Music with a Major in Composition").

At Freshman Orientation, students will take placement examinations in both music theory and piano. Transfer students will take similar examinations at New Student Orientation during registration week.

Scholarships and service awards are available in the various performing areas, ensembles and composition. Scholarship auditions (which also serve as entrance auditions) are held at various times during the year as announced, both on and off campus. Applicants unable to attend any of the announced auditions may submit recordings with the scholarship application. Applicants for composition scholarships must submit scores and recordings of two representative works. Scholarship recipients are expected to enroll for a full load, maintain minimum academic grade requirements and perform in appropriate music laboratories and ensembles.

In certain cases, music is accepted toward degree requirements in other fields. At registration the student should secure approval from the major department chair.

Degree Requirements and the University Core Curriculum

Occasionally a course required for a degree may also satisfy a requirement of the University Core Curriculum. In addition to taking the required course, a student may elect to take a different course from among those available to fulfill that core requirement; doing so, however, may add to the total number of hours required for the degree. Students who have questions regarding degree requirements and core requirements should consult a degree program adviser.

Bachelor of Music

This degree may be earned with a major in (1) performance; (2) general, choral and instrumental music; (3) composition; (4) music theory; (5) jazz studies; or (6) music history and literature.

The student who majors in performance may choose piano (performance), piano (pedagogy), organ (performance), organ (church music), harpsichord, voice or an orchestral instrument, including harp, classical guitar, and multiple woodwinds, as the area of choice. Four-year outlines for major programs and specific instrumental specializations are listed below.

Each student should secure from the music office or adviser the eight-semester outline for the chosen major.

Instruction in each area is designed to train students for public performance and teaching in schools or private studios, to prepare them for passing barrier examinations, to develop them culturally, to develop musicianship and technical proficiency, to strengthen sight-reading and the ability to assimilate music without guidance, and to prepare them for participation in church services, orchestras, ensemble groups or graduate work. The curriculum for general, choral and instrumental music majors also leads to teacher certification by the state of Texas. Instruction is given on both group and individual bases.
