3 Mission Statement Music Department The mission of the Jones Junior College Fine Arts Division is the following: (1) to provide academic programs for the first two years of college/university-parallel curricula for students majoring in music or art and to provide courses that fulfill the general education requirement for students desiring to transfer to four-year institutions and (2) to serve as a public relations body for the college through the media of art and music and to provide activities and facilities for the cultural and educational development of students and communities in the JCJC District. Degree Programs: Instrumental Music Education Vocal Music Education, Voice Emphasis Vocal Music Education, Keyboard Emphasis Guitar Music Education See the college catalog for specific degree program and general studies requirements.

4 Music Department Policies (1) Music majors must be enrolled in the following courses each semester: Major Applied Lessons Piano (class or lessons) Major Ensemble: (Choose one or more from the following: Choir, Marching Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band) Music Theory and the Corresponding Lab Recital Class Students are encouraged to participate in one or more small ensembles each semester. Students who choose to return to Jones for more than two years must also enroll in the above classes, and the course will be counted as a repeat. (2) Applied Requirements All music majors must enroll in major applied lessons each semester of enrollment at Jones. A student who is not prepared for freshman-level major lessons will be required to begin at a non-major level until music-major proficiency has been achieved. If at any time the student is unable to achieve proficiency for the next level of study, he/she may be required to repeat the previous music major level or return to a nonmajor level. Students are required to perform in Recital Class at least once each semester on his/her major instrument. Consistent practice is required for improvement on the student s major instrument. The student s grade will be adversely affected by a failure to engage in focused and regular practice sessions. Preparation for weekly lessons is required of all students. The studio teacher reserves the right to terminate any lesson for which the student is not adequately prepared. The termination of lesson will result in a failing grade for that lesson and will adversely affect the student s final average. Students will be required to purchase materials and music throughout the semester. Photocopied music is not acceptable. Make-up lessons will be given at the discretion of the studio teacher for excused absences. Absences from lessons that are not excused will not be rescheduled. All students enrolled in major applied lessons will be required to perform a jury at the end of each semester. The jury grade will comprise 30 percent of the student s final average. Any student who does not perform a jury will receive a failing grade for the semester. Music majors will not be allowed to drop applied lessons or class piano after midterm. The department chair must approve all requests for change of applied teacher. Changes in applied teacher will be considered only after the student has discussed the change

5 with the present teacher. Changes are not guaranteed and will depend upon availability and consent of the prospective teacher. (3) Assessment Procedure Students must pass all music courses with a C or better to proceed to the next level and/or to receive transfer credit from a four-year institution. Each student must jury on his/her major instrument in both technique and performance--and applied piano. Any student who does not perform a jury will receive a failing grade for the semester. Plagiarism and cheating will not be tolerated. See Code of Conduct in the Jones Junior College Student Handbook. Students caught cheating or plagiarizing risk one or all of the following: loss of scholarship, failure of the class, and dismissal from the program or college. (4) Recital Class Requirements Recital class is required of all music majors and is not open to non-music majors. All students receive a grade (A or F) for successful completion of Recital Class. The grade will be comprised of attendance at weekly recital classes and outside performances as well as the student s successful completion of at least one solo recital class performance. Requests for an excused absence must be submitted to the Chair prior to the class or event. Students who arrive late for Recital Class will not be given credit for attendance. Most programs will take place on the JC campus or within the JC District. Students are required to maintain a schedule of outside events and requirements and will be issued a syllabus with MOST dates and events listed. Some events are TBA (to be announced), and ample notification will be given prior to the event. The departmental secretary coordinates all recital programs. The student is responsible for submitting CORRECT program information (name, title of composition, composer, and dates) to the secretary, via the recital class request form, by noon on Monday prior to the Tuesday recital class. (5) Jury Requirements All students enrolled in major or secondary applied lessons must perform a jury at the end of each semester. Jury requirements for each studio will be specified in the respective syllabus. Two weeks prior to jury week, the student should present their applied teacher with the appropriate jury form for approval. Two weeks prior to jury week, the student must submit 15 copies of the approved jury form to Paula Harrison.

6 (6) Sophomore Recital Students who are in their final semester of study at JCJC may opt, with the permission of their instructor, to perform a sophomore recital in lieu of a jury. The recital fee is $50 for students requiring an accompanist and $25 for students not requiring an accompanist. This fee must be paid by February 1 for spring recitals and September 1 for fall recitals. Accompanists must have all music one month in advance of the scheduled recital. (7) Departmental Operations The Fine Arts Building is open from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., Monday Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Friday. Practice rooms are available to music students only from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., Monday Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., Friday. Practice facilities are offered as a courtesy to students. Any student abusing practice room equipment or using practice rooms for nonmusical purposes shall be banned from practice room use. Classrooms are not to be used for practice rooms. Food and drinks are not allowed in the fine arts building. (8) Ensemble Participation Students are required to be in one large ensemble each semester and are expected to be in one or more small ensembles. A student s participation in an ensemble requires a serious commitment of time and effort. Work schedules must be sufficiently flexible to meet the requirements of the ensemble. Attendance policies for each ensemble are determined by the ensemble director and are more stringent than the general college policy. Assessment for each ensemble is determined by the instructor, but grading will be based on academic and applied evaluations, attendance, compliance with ensemble policies, contribution to the ensemble, work ethic, and attitude. Failure to meet the expectations of the ensemble instructor may result in a partial or total loss of scholarship. All known performances are indicated on the ensemble syllabus, but additional performances may be added throughout the semester. Students are expected to be at all performances and rehearsals, and for music majors, the ensemble schedule will take precedence over non-music classes, work, and/or other engagements.

7 Policies for Students Regarding Accompanists As a service to its students, the Fine Arts Department provides faculty accompanists to its students free of charge. This allows music students in the early development of their professional music education to work with professional accompanists. For the partnership between performer and accompanist to work smoothly, certain protocols must be followed: 1. Copies of music must be provided to the accompanist in a timely fashion. a. Recital Class the accompanist should receive copies of music at least 2 weeks before the performance. b. Juries the accompanist should receive copies of music at least 3 weeks before the scheduled jury. c. Sophomore Recitals the accompanist should receive copies of music at least 4 weeks before the performance. 2. Clear, legible copies of music should include all markings. Reduce oversize scores if necessary. A performance tempo metronome indication should be included. 3. The performer is responsible for meeting with the accompanist to arrange a rehearsal schedule. This schedule will be determined at the discretion of the accompanist. This service is limited to music majors enrolled in piano lessons as well as lessons in their major area. Accompanists will only be provided for departmental performances such as juries and recital classes. Additional arrangements should be made for outside performances such as competitions and auditions. Should the student fail to follow these polices, an accompanist will not be provided, and the student will be responsible for providing an accompanist. This accompanist must be approved by the student s major area instructor and the department chair. The student s grade may be negatively impacted if the quality of ensemble performance is not adequate.
