Tests and Assignments

Independent, effective, daily practice is a pre-requisite for success as a musician. Learning how to practice efficiently is one of the major goals of this course. Plan on practicing at least 25 minutes per day to consolidate material presented in class.


Grades will be calculated on the basis of your progress and preparation for classes (as determined by pop quizzes, sight-reading, written assignments, and prepared tests) and by your performance on the final playing exam.

A missed final playing exam will result in a grade of "F" for the course. University policy will apply in incidences of scholastic dishonesty. Scholastic dishonesty includes but is not limited to cheating on a test, plagiarism, and collusion. For more information on university policy on these matters, consult the Academic Catalog and the Code of Student Life, Section 3-3.

Attendance and Missed/Rescheduled Test and Assignment Policy:

Regular, punctual attendance is expected. By advance arrangement and for legitimate reasons, students may receive permission to reschedule tests and assignment deadlines. Without advance arrangement, tests will be rescheduled only in the case of documented emergencies. A missed test will result in a grade of zero for that test. Without advance arrangement, late assignments will be penalized.
