Music Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Rosary College of Arts and Sciences

The music minor is completed with either an emphasis in performance or an emphasis in music theroy or composition.

Minor Requirements:

Emphasis in Performance

Students need to pass an audition to become music majors or minors. Please contact the director of the music discipline regarding requirements. While on the first semester of applied study, students are considered on probation of the minor and pending approval of the professor for acceptance to the minor.

Practice and Performance Requirements of Music Minors

Even though they are not majors, music minors are expected to take their preparation for their private instruction classes seriously. The professors will communicate with the students daily practice requirements, which are expected to be followed closely. Lack of proper preparation will result to lower grades.

All music minor performance students have to complete each semester of their applied studies with either a performance in the designated Music Discipline Student Fall or Spring Recital. The possibility of completing the semester with a jury exists and the professor will help the student chose if a jury is needed instead of a performance.

Students who study an instrument at Concordia, learning an instrument that Dominican University does not offer, need to complete four semesters of 1 credit hour and follow the same requirement of performance or jury at the end of each semester (Concordia offers only 0.5 or 1 credit hours of instruction in instrumental study). The performances of those students, unless given special permission by the director of the music discipline at Dominican, have to take place at Dominican University.

Additional Information:

Students should consider completing MUS 178 - Fundamentals of Music and Class Piano II  in addition to MUS 101 - Fundamentals of Music and Class Piano I .

Students who do not have formal training in music will need to complete MUS 129 - Fundamentals of Music Theory  before enrolling in MUS 107 - Music Theory I .

Emphasis in Music Theory or Composition
