Students will automatically pass the piano proficiency
requirement by earning a grade of C or better in the four-semester class
piano sequence, MUS 155, 156, 157, 158. Students who opt to pass
the proficiency exam by private testing may do so in two parts providing
they pass at least half of the requirements in the first exam.

teaching, or request a Senior Recital hearing, until all requirements
for proficiency have been met and approved by the music faculty.
Students who receive less than a 2.0 (C) must repeat MUS 158 before
taking their proficiency exam.
