Undergraduate Performance Majors Juries are taken only at
412 b and 412 d (The 412d jury is a long jury which is a
qualifying jury to advance you to upper division).
Principal Majors (Studies)
210b and 210 d and
Juries are required at the end of the freshman and sophomore years.
I may elect to have you take more juries but that is at my discretion.
A student may be retained at either of these juries if insufficient
progress has been made.
First semester graduate students will present juries at the ends of their
first two semesters of study.
The first semester jury will be 10 minutes and students will play
material representative of that semester’s lesson activity, whether it’s
repertoire or a demonstration of a fundamental playing adjustment.
The second semester jury will be called a “Qualifying Jury”
because it qualifies the student to advance to the recital
semesters. It will be a 10 minute jury, but the student will
prepare a minimum of 20 minutes of music, from which the jury
will select excerpts to hear. Preferably you will include three
composers and periods. The student will bring copies of a
repertoire list to the jury. A student may be retained at either of
these juries if insufficient progress has been made.
