1 MANHATTANVILLE COLLEGE MUSIC DEPARTMENT ADVISING MANUAL FOR MAJORS Philosophy and Objectives of the Music Department: Manhattanville s music programs offer broad opportunities both for the music major and liberal arts student. It is in pursuing that dual purpose, to train future professionals and to serve the aesthetic needs of the liberal arts major, that the core philosophy of the Music Department is most apparent. We enthusiastically seek to provide a performance experience for non-majors and to encourage our majors to explore broader intellectual horizons by enrolling in a wide variety of diverse courses. Our music curriculum allows for a strong emphasis on creativity and individual expression without sacrificing the full development of necessary skills and self-discipline. Courses are available for all Manhattanville students in specialized areas of musical performance, music history, music theory, composition, music education, musical theatre, music management, music technology, and jazz studies. Opportunities exist for public performances, both on and off campus, through membership in a variety of performing organizations. It is not uncommon to find the major and non-major performing side by side. The Music Department also offers a flexible minor in music to address the diverse interests of students wishing to pursue music as a supplementary subject area. Manhattanville College offers several degree programs in music. Music majors may pursue either the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Music, the Bachelor of Arts degree in music with a concentration in Music Management, Musical Theatre, Music Technology, or a Bachelor of Music degree with a major in Music Education. Graduate students, with the proper prerequisite training, can pursue the Master of Arts in Teaching in music education. This program requires a combination of 40 graduate credits in music, psychology and education. Students who have already completed a master s degree in music can take courses in the Post-masters Certification Program (see School of Education Graduate Catalogue). Since fall 2005, we have offered a combined degree honors program with the School of Education to allow an accelerated Bachelor of Music in Music Education and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree. The combined degree program allows students to double count 15 credits towards both degrees. Successful completion of any graduate program results in permanent teaching certification for New York State. For all of our degree programs, a primary objective of the Music Department is to provide the means and environment to equip our graduates to take their place in the world of music outside the campus walls. We take very seriously our role to encourage in students the responsibility to use their individual talents in ways that will benefit and serve the community-at-large. Ultimately, we aim to provide an environment where music study at Manhattanville College will inspire young men and women to pursue life-long learning and pleasure in music. Francis Brancaleone, Ph.D. Chair, Department of Music 1

3 How to be Successful as a Music Major: A Guide to Advising This Manual is the official reference guide to the Manhattanville College Music Department, containing information about requirements, policies, resources, departmental structure, and special opportunities. Although designed especially to assist music majors, the manual should also serve as a source of information for other students, faculty, advisors, and administrators. The Music Faculty will revise the manual annually. What the Music Major Should Know (The Essential Starting Points): The following general requirements are explained in detail either within this Manual or within the Music Department web site. All Music Majors must complete the Music Major Information Sheet each semester (available in the Music Department Office). All Music Majors require 130 credits to graduate and must pursue specific sequences of courses in their academic programs (see Degree Requirements and Recommended Sequence of Courses for a specific degree program). A successful audition is required for the B.A. in Music, the B.Mus. in Music Education, B.A. in Music with a Concentration in Musical Theatre and the B.A. in Music with a Concentration in Music Technology. Audition requirements are posted on the Music Department Web Page. Without exception, all music majors must take a Music Theory Placement Exam. All Music Majors in the B.A. in Music, B.Mus. in Music Education and B.A. in Music with a Concentration in Musical Theatre must meet ongoing performance requirements (see Undergraduate Performance Requirements and Applied Music Requirements for the B.A. in Music). All Music Majors are required to meet the Concert Attendance Requirements each semester to remain majors in good standing (see Concert Attendance Requirements). All Music students should be aware of the Classroom Attendance Policies for classes, ensembles and applied music lessons (see Class and Lesson Attendance Policies). All Music Majors must complete the Sophomore Review for Satisfactory Progress towards Degree Requirements to be considered as a major and to receive approval for the first portfolio review (see Satisfactory Progress towards Degree Requirements). All Music Majors must complete a successful Senior Evaluation (see Senior Evaluation Requirements and The Senior Comprehensive Examination). All Music Majors with a concentration in Music Management must complete at least one semester of Internship and the Internship Seminar in Music Management, with associated internship hours. These cannot be completed in the same semester (see Procedures for an Internship in Music Management). It is each student's responsibility to meet the requirements for the Music Major. Members of the Music Faculty are available to assist with understanding requirements, but each student should be clear about requirements and responsibilities. 3

4 I. DEPARTMENTAL HONORS (Effective Fall, 1983) (Revised Fall, 2003) Upon recommendation of the Music Faculty, Departmental Honors are conferred upon graduating seniors who have maintained a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 in departmental courses, receive a minimum grade of A- for the Senior Evaluation, and have made significant contributions to the activities of the Music Department. II. CLASS AND LESSON ATTENDANCE POLICIES AND PROCEDURE FOR CHANGING TEACHERS (Effective Fall, 1986) (Revised Fall, 1999, 2011) A. Classroom Attendance: Students are expected to attend all class meetings and to be prepared to participate in all activities in those meetings. In the event that an unavoidable absence is necessary, the student is expected to notify the instructor in advance of the class meeting and to provide a legitimate excuse for that absence. Unless otherwise indicated by the instructor, the following policies apply: For a course that meets twice a week, more than two unexcused absences will lower the grade. For a course that meets once a week, more than one unexcused absence will lower the grade. Repeated lateness disrupts the class and habitual latecomers may not be permitted into the class. Arriving late for class twice will be considered as one absence. If a student accumulates more than the allowed number of unexcused absences in a course in a single semester, that student's standing in the course and in the department will be in jeopardy. The student may be asked to appear before the faculty and/or the Department Chair to explain the unexcused absences. Refusal to appear before that group could result in dismissal from the department. B. Attendance at Applied Music Lessons: Students enrolled in Applied Music Courses are expected to attend all scheduled lessons and any master class/clinics offered by the Music Department for your instrument. Also, all students taking lessons are required to play at a music jury at the end of the semester during finals week. Make your travel plans with that in mind. Missing the jury will result in a grade of F for the semester. Note: Instructors are under no obligation to make up lessons missed by the student and will not schedule make-up lessons. However, any lesson missed due to the absence of the instructor should be made up at a time convenient to both the student and the instructor. In the event that an unavoidable absence is necessary, the student is expected to notify the instructor in advance of the lesson time and to explain the absence. If a student accumulates more than two unexcused absences in a single semester, that student will be asked to appear before the instructor and/or the Department Chair to explain the unexcused absences. Refusal to appear could result in dismissal from the lessons. C. Procedure for Changing Teachers: Should it become necessary or desirable to change private teacher, it can only be done between semesters. This is a sensitive issue and both parties need to exercise utmost care not to offend the other or to create any bad feelings. The best procedure would be to have a frank discussion between student and teacher. However, that may not always be possible, in which case, the student should write a respectful letter outlining the reasons for the change and thanking the teacher for his/her progress to date. 4

5 III. CONCERT ATTENDANCE POLICY (Effective Fall, 1986) (Revised Fall, 2004, Fall, 2010, Fall, 2011) Attendance at Concerts and Recitals for Music Majors (All Programs): Concert attendance improves musicianship by making students more sensitive to live musical sound and is vital to helping make them more complete participants in all music major tracks. Musicians interact with live audiences in a way that they cannot in the recording studio. We encourage all music students to take up an instrument to begin to understand the performing experience better and your attendance at live concerts completes that experience. The Music Department considers attendance at events and concerts to be a vital part of all students musical training and an indication of commitment to the major. However, recognizing that the Department produces many performances each semester, a representative group has been selected. To remain in good standing, students must attend (in their entirety) a total of six approved on-campus concerts and recitals each semester. Attendance is compulsory for all music majors at the following events: 1. One Faculty Concert or designated event each semester.* 2. At least two large ensemble concerts each semester, selected from: Chorus, Orchestra, Wind Ensemble or Community Jazz Ensemble. 3. At least one Informal Student Recital each semester. 4. The Freshman-Sophomore-Junior Recital (Spring).* 5. At least one additional concert or recital each semester. 6. One small ensemble or senior recital concert. Music majors are expected to make-up any absence by attending other on-campus or, with prior approval, off-campus concerts. Students may not shift concert attendance from semester to semester to make up deficiencies. Any questions regarding concert attendance may be directed to the Music Office. Failure to fulfill this requirement may result in the student not being considered for Departmental Awards, Scholarships, or being recommended as an appropriate Music Department representative for College or outside events. Students are not excused to participate in extra-curricular events. Make certain to check the Music Department concert calendar and make appropriate arrangements with work or family so that your educational responsibilities are given their proper priority. *Should absence from these events prove unavoidable, the student is expected to provide a written explanation for the absence to the Chair of the Music Department and a plan to substitute attendance at a comparable concert. 5

6 IV. PROCEDURES FOR JUNIOR AND SENIOR RECITALS (Effective Fall, 2007) (Revised 2010) In order to assure a good presentation, students who are scheduled to give a recital should observe the following guidelines. Please address any questions to the Department Chair. 1. By October 1 (fall) or February 1 (spring), submit your program information on the appropriate form, signed by your teacher, to the Music Department Office. After departmental approval, you should send the information to Kathryn DiBernardo, Music Department Coordinator, in digital form. Each work should be presented with correct spelling, composers dates, and complete information with regards to movements. All performers on the recital must be specified, as well as any proposed encore (which will not appear in the program). This information is required for music licensing. Models of previous programs are available in the Music Department Office for your reference. The last page is reserved for acknowledgements. Include them with your program notes. 2. Students are responsible for Program Notes for Senior Recitals. These notes should be of high quality and submitted for approval to the Department Chair, or an assigned faculty member, in electronic form. The date for completed fall program notes is October 15, and for spring program notes is March 1. This leaves time for any corrections. Students planning to do more than one draft should plan ahead and be sure to get comments from your applied teachers before submission. In the concert program, students will be identified as sole authors of the notes, so all plagiarism and citation guidelines apply. Note: 10% of your recital grade will depend upon the program submission process and there will be penalties for lateness. 3. A full-length recital should be approximately minutes in length. Half-length recitals should run between 35 and 40 minutes. The recitals are scheduled back to back, and it would be very unfair to your fellow recitalists to interfere with their presentation. Be sure that all family and friends have directions to the hall, since we will start each program on time. Be aware that the clock continues to run during any scheduled intermission or breaks in the program. 4. Should you wish to have your recital recorded contact information for approved recording engineers will be provided by the Music Office. It is your responsibility to negotiate payment directly with the engineer. Please allow sufficient time to secure services for the date. At least three weeks is suggested. 5. Your recital will be graded usually by three of the Manhattanville faculty, whose notes will be available to you for review. Under normal circumstances the recital grade will also stand as the jury portion of your applied music grade and you will not be required to perform a jury during the semester that you give a recital. Resources: Guides to the format and style of notes are described at the following web sites that you may find helpful: or the most detailed information on writing about music appears in sections of The Recital Participation Form is available as a link on the Music Department web page and in the Music Department Office. 6

7 V. PROCEDURES FOR VOCAL COACHING (Effective Fall, 2007) Manhattanville s Music Department provides three coach/accompanists for students taking voice class or voice lessons on campus. In order to get the most out of your coaching, you should: have legible copies of your music for your coach (making sure that you have not cut off the bass line at the bottom of the page and that the piece is in the correct key for you); be warmed up and ready to sing; arrive on time; try to familiarize yourself with the composers' dates and stylistic era, but don't be afraid to ask questions during the session; try to come for at least three consecutive coachings at least once per term. Obviously, the more often and consistently you attend coachings, the better your progress and final results will be. DO NOT ASSUME THAT THE ACCOMPANISTS WILL PLAY RECITALS OR JURIES FOR STUDENTS WITH WHOM THEY HAVEN'T WORKED PREVIOUSLY! Procedures for MUA : Voice Class I and II Students in both sections of voice class are required to meet regularly with Jeonguen Yom as described in class materials. Coachings can be scheduled directly with Ms. Yom. Coaching Procedures for Voice Lessons: Students are required to attend at least six coachings per semester. Sign-up sheets are posted weekly with 15-minute time slots. Time slots are limited, so if you are ill or cannot attend for any other reason, you must take your name off the list (preferably in advance) or call the Music Office (ext. 5260) so that the slot may be made available to another student. Diane Guernsey and Beverly Meyer are the coaches for voice students for the applied music lessons. Ms. Guernsey specializes in the classical repertoire; Ms. Meyer specializes in musical theater repertoire. However, if your schedule does not allow for coachings with both Ms. Guernsey and Ms. Meyer, either one will be happy to help you with any of your songs. If you are one of those students who can't come for ANY regularly scheduled coachings, let the coaches know and something will be worked out for you. Other Vocal Coaching: During the semester, there are informal recitals, competitions, and juries. You must notify Ms. Guernsey and Ms. Meyer at least TWO WEEKS prior to the event of your intention to perform, and you must have coached the song(s) in advance. Accompanist fee for competitions (such as the Arlene Kaplan) is $70.00 to be paid on the day of the competition. If you are performing a Junior or Senior Recital, please confirm your accompanist as early as possible, and communicate when you get your concert date and program set. 7

8 VI. SATISFACTORY PROGRESS TOWARDS DEGREE REQUIREMENTS (Effective Fall, 2004) (Revised Fall, 2008, 2010) The Sophomore Review determines whether each student is making progress towards acquiring skills necessary for success as a major in the Music Department. Each student is reviewed by music department faculty for progress in core areas of the music curriculum during their third semester at the College, except for transfer students who will be reviewed at the end of their first semester. All students will be evaluated for satisfactory grades in required Core Courses and acceptable progress in Music Theory. Students in the Bachelor of Music (Music Education) program and in the Bachelor of Arts (Major in Music) program will also be evaluated for satisfactory progress in their major performing vehicle and on the piano. Satisfactory progress is required in order to maintain standing as music major. The Sophomore Review focuses on both theoretical and practical areas of knowledge. The review will be used to determine that students have acquired sufficient technical knowledge about music to proceed to upper level courses as juniors and to accomplish the upper level courses in a timely manner. Failure to maintain satisfactory progress can result in the following: either the student must withdraw from the major program or, upon recommendation of the faculty review, the student can continue in a provisional status. Provisional status can require the retaking of courses and either additional time or summer study for the completion of the degree. Students transferring to Manhattanville with 40 or more credits should be on track to meet the same requirements. They will be reviewed at the end of their first semester of full time study at the College. The following list summarizes the levels of satisfactory progress for each of the music degree programs. B.A. in Music B.A. Major in Music students must be on schedule to complete MUT 2043: Comprehensive Musicianship IV, MUT 2044: Keyboard Harmony IV, MUT 2022: Intermediate Ear Training II, and MUH : Survey of Western Music I and II by the end of the second year of study.

13 IX. SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR MUSIC MAJORS Community Outreach: A significant part of the mission of Manhattanville College is to encourage service to the community and mankind in general. Music students can take an active role in such service during the course of the year by performing or teaching at any one of a number of public and/or private charitable, educational, or health institutions in the area. Students interested in such activities should notify the Music Department Chair, in writing, as soon as possible. Departmental Volunteer Activities: In an organization as complex and active as the Music Department there are many tasks, which are necessarily assumed by gracious volunteers. Manhattanville has been fortunate over the years to have caring and loyal students who have contributed their time and talents to serve the needs of the Department. They have acted as ushers, ticket-takers, envelope-stuffers, messengers, piano-movers, telephone operators, poster hangers, painters, receptionists, and secretaries. Their services have been much appreciated and they seem to have enjoyed being part of a successful, productive team. The Music Department continues to need such help. We promise a happy experience, insights into the management of the Department, and intangible rewards. The following standards apply to ushering: Arrive no later than 20 minutes before the performance is scheduled to begin. Dress neatly. No jeans. Ushers must remain at the door of the theater to attend to latecomers and thus may not be able to see the entire performance. Therefore, if you are required to see the performance enter quietly at an appropriate time. Internships: Of particular interest to Music Management Majors, but open to all students, is the opportunity to take an active role in specially selected internships. These may be on or off campus, carry academic credit, and in some rare instances offer a stipend. On campus internships include: managing the Chorus, the Orchestra, managing concerts, or managing the Musical Theatre Production. Off campus internships have taken place in TV production studios, recording studios, publishing companies, with cable TV, and with symphony orchestras. For more information contact the Music Department Chair or the Center for Career Development. 13

14 X. Student Learning Objectives in the Music Department During academic year, the faculty in the Music Department conducted a department-wide evaluation and invited an external reviewer to look at the music curriculum and procedures. An important outcome of that review has been the identification of specific learning objectives related to the major programs and courses offered. The following six learning objectives were identified as supporting the core philosophy of the department. Associated with each objective are specific tasks within the curriculum to which the department will look in assessing the essential aspects of our disciplines. Objective I: Real World Experience in Music Build skills in individual music performance through private and group instruction leading to public performance on and off campus.
