(MUSI)

Available on the Bachelor of Music degree, with majors in Performance, Piano Pedagogy, Theory/Composition, Music History or Church Music; on the Bachelor of Music Education degree with a concentration in Vocal or Instrumental Music in preparation for all-level certification, and as a major or minor on the Bachelor of Arts degree.

Admission. Acceptance into the School of Music requires an audition in the primary performance and scholarly area prior to admission to TCU. Applicants unable to visit the campus may submit a tape recording or copies of original scores and papers.

School Facilities. The School of Music is housed in TCU's Ed Landreth Hall and the Mary D. and F. Howard Walsh Center for Performing Arts. The Ed Landreth building includes teaching, practice and rehearsal facilities, and a 1200-seat auditorium with superb acoustics. Numerous pianos, many of them grands; four pipe organs; two harpsichords; a clavichord; a collection of authentic Baroque instruments; the Upchurch Studio for Electro-Acoustic Music; the John Large Vocal Arts Laboratory; and other instrumental collections serve the school.

The Mary D. and F. Howard Walsh Center for Performing Arts houses a 325-seat recital hall of unprecedented acoustic design, an instrumental rehearsal hall, a choral rehearsal hall, and a piano wing furnished exclusively with Steinway pianos. The piano wing includes: five teaching studios, eight practice rooms, and an electronic piano laboratory.

A large, comprehensive music library complete with recordings, reference books, texts, scores, and listening rooms is housed in the Mary Couts Burnett Library.

School Requirements

Keyboard Skills. All music majors, unless exempted by testing, register for Music 11030, Class Piano, in the first semester, and must continue in classes until they pass the keyboard skills test. This requirement must be met by the end of the sophomore year. Students will not be allowed to register for courses in the junior year until this requirement is met. Piano and Organ majors will meet this requirement by taking MUSI 20071 and 20081, Functional Piano.

Recitals. All music majors appear in school and studio recitals. Students majoring in performance participate in a half recital during the junior year and present a full recital during the senior year. Students majoring in music education present a recital, typically before student teaching.

Juries. A jury examination is held each semester for majors and minors in performance courses and annually for theory/composition majors beginning the sophomore year. At the end of the sophomore year this examination determines whether the student is permitted to enroll in upper division performance and composition lessons. The junior jury and/or recital determine admission to senior standing for performance majors.

Recital/Concert Attendance. Music majors are required to register in MUSI 11000 each semester. This is a pass/no pass, zero-credit course. Music majors are required to attend a minimum of 15 concerts each semester, with the exception of the student-teaching semester for BME students. Six (6) of these concerts must be from the weekly School of Music Recital Hour Series. The remaining nine (9) may be chosen from faculty and guest artist recitals, TCU and guest ensemble concerts, and student recitals. Students will submit to the School of Music Office original printed concert programs signed by a TCU School of Music faculty member in attendance. Deadline for submission of programs is 12:00 pm the last day of classes.

All music courses taken in the major or minor sequences must be passed with a grade of "C" or better to fulfill graduation requirements.
