1.2 The Faculty Then and Now

The Conservatorium of Music was established in 1904 and the Faculty of Music in 1920. Formerly housed in various buildings belonging to the University, the Faculty moved in 1972 to one location, the Strathcona Music Building, formerly the main section of the Royal Victoria College.

The Strathcona Music Building houses a Performance Library of over six thousand titles; a Music Education Research Laboratory; an Electronic Music Studio; five individual Recording Studios; ample classroom, studio, and practice space, student-lounge and cafeteria; the 80-seat Clara Lichtenstein Recital Hall and the Pollack Concert Hall (capacity: 600) with its large stage (including an orchestra pit), a Recording Studio, projection room, and spacious back-stage facilities (dressing rooms, a large rehearsal room and storage space). In addition, the Faculty uses the 400-seat Redpath Hall, which houses the University organ, as a concert venue.

The Marvin Duchow Music Library is located across the street on the 11th floor of 550 Sherbrooke Street West. (For more information, refer to the Libraries Website, www.library.mcgill.ca.)

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT) is a network of twelve world-class Quebec researchers in science, engineering, medicine and music from four institutions - McGill University, Université de Montréal, Université de Sherbrooke, and the CÉGEP de Drummondville. These scientists will integrate their impressive body of expertise in a well-defined research program under the umbrella of the Centre's facilities to be located at the Faculty of Music at McGill. The new infrastructure, consisting of state-of-the-art laboratories and studios integrated via an electronic network and housed in a newly constructed building, will contribute to the establishment of the proposed multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research program. Via this modern, fully networked building that can be electronically reconfigured to respond to any application, a new paradigm for interdisciplinary collaboration will be created.

The current student enrolment is over 550 at the undergraduate level and over 150 at the graduate level. The teaching staff includes 43 full-time and over 100 part-time members. Students and staff generate a lively performance activity: over 450 concerts, as well as master classes and lectures, and other public events are given annually, including presentations by the symphony orchestra, choirs, jazz bands and ensembles, chamber ensembles, the opera studio, and recitals by staff and student soloists.

Designated Major

Special programs of study in music may be proposed in consultation with Faculty advisers. Such special proposals must be approved by the relevant department, the Executive Committee and by Faculty Council.

Faculty Program

This program is designed to accommodate those students who are either undecided about the area of music in which they wish to specialize, or who are interested in a pattern of specialization not provided in the established majors and honours programs, or who are interested in combining studies in music with studies in other disciplines.

All of the above B.Mus. programs normally require three years of study following completion of the Quebec Diploma of Collegial Studies or four years of study following completion of secondary school elsewhere.

B.A. Major Concentration in Music

The Faculty of Arts offers a Bachelor of Arts degree with a Major Concentration in Music. Further details on the program can be found under Music in the Faculty of Arts section.

Minor Programs

A Minor in Music History for Performers is available to all students in Performance (Major or Honours) programs. This option will take the place of music electives, as well as history, literature and performance practice complementary courses, in Performance programs.

A Minor in Music Technology is available to music students who wish to graduate with a knowledge of newer technologies and the impact they are having on the field of music. (Space permitting, the Minors in Music Technology are also available to B.A. and B.Sc. students.)

Minor programs in Music are also available to students in the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science. Further information on these Minors can be found under the Faculty of Arts, see Music (MUAR) and the Faculty of Science, see Music.

This program normally requires three years of study.

ARTIST DIPLOMA

The Artist Diploma is available only to advanced instrumentalists and singers who demonstrate technical and musical maturity. Admission into the program requires completion of a Bachelor of Music degree in Performance, a Licentiate in Music, or the equivalent.

The above Master's programs, offered by the Faculty of Music in conjunction with the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, require a minimum of 1½ years of full-time resident study (for Sound Recording, 2 years). Applicants who hold the equivalent of this University's B.Mus. with Honours in the area of specialization may be able to complete the Master's degrees in less than two years.

DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF MUSIC (D.Mus.)

The degree of Doctor of Music is available in Composition and Performance Studies and requires a minimum of two years following the completion of the Master of Music Degree.

DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY (Ph.D.)

The degree of Doctor of Philosophy is available in the areas of Music Education, Musicology, Music Technology, Sound Recording, and Theory. The Ph.D. requires a minimum of three years of full-time resident study beyond a Bachelor's degree equivalent to a McGill Honours degree in Music Education, Music History, or Theory. Applicants will normally be admitted to the M.A. program for the first year and may apply for admittance to the Ph.D. program after the completion of one full year of graduate course work. A candidate who holds a Master's degree in the area of specialization may, on the recommendation of the Department, be permitted to count the work done for the Master's degree as the first year of resident study.

For details of the Master's and Doctoral programs, please consult the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Calendar.

3.2 Orchestral Training

Orchestral Training at McGill includes all students in the B.Mus., L.Mus., Artist Diploma, and M.Mus. degrees and diplomas whose major is one of the orchestral instruments.

Music Education applicants are asked to submit a letter of intent outlining reasons for wishing to enter the Music Education field and a letter of reference from someone attesting to his or her suitability for teaching.

4.3 Academic Entrance Requirements

Bachelor of Music

The applicant's entrance audition and the academic record are considered when making an admission decision. As a limit is placed upon the number of students admitted to study a particular instrument, fulfillment of the minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee acceptance. TOEFL may be required of non-Canadian students whose mother tongue is not English. It is the applicant's responsibility to make the necessary arrangements with the examining board to write the test in the country of residence.

CEGEP Applicants

Students are expected to obtain the Quebec Diploma of Collegial Studies (Diplôme d'études collégiales) in the Music Concentration or equivalent. Applicants with a DCS/DEC in a field other than Music must have the equivalent Music prerequisites. The minimum overall average required is 70%. CEGEP graduates are admitted to a three-year program.

Canadian High School (excluding Quebec) Applicants

Applicants are expected to obtain a high school graduation diploma which leads to university admission in the student's home province. Ontario high school students are normally expected to have obtained a minimum of 6 OACs; at least four of the six must have been taken at the 4U level. There are no specific non-music prerequisite courses required and the minimum overall average should be 70%. Canadian high school graduates are admitted to a four-year program.

U.S. High School Applicants

Applicants are expected to obtain a high school graduation diploma which meets the requirements for university/college admission in the U.S. The minimum overall average required is "B+". There are no specific non-music prerequisite courses, or SAT and Achievement Test results required. Some credit will be granted for Advanced Placement Examinations in appropriate subjects. U.S. high school graduates are admitted to a four-year program.

International Applicants

In general, applicants must be eligible for admission to university in their country of origin and have above average grades. Students who have completed an International Baccalaureate, a French Baccalaureate, or a minimum of three GCE "A'' (Advanced) Level examinations are considered for admission into a three-year program. Normally, applicants with five GCE "O'' (Ordinary) Level results, plus one year of schooling beyond the Ordinary Level, are admitted to a four-year program. Applicants with qualifications from other systems will be considered for either a three-year or a four-year program.

Transfer Students

Transfer students are considered on the basis of both their university or college work and previous studies. Normally, students are expected to complete a full year of university studies prior to applying for admission and to be in good standing as defined by the university previously attended. The minimum overall average required is a CGPA of 3.00. Transfer credits for Arts and/or Science courses in which a grade of C or better has been received are granted following an evaluation of the student's transcript. Transfer credits, with certain restrictions, are granted for music complementary or elective courses following an evaluation of the student's transcript (a higher grade may often be required). Transfer students must complete a minimum of 60 credits at McGill in order to obtain a degree.

Mature Students

Applicants who are at least 21 years of age at or before registration, who have not met the high school or CEGEP academic requirements, and who are able to demonstrate exceptional talent in their discipline may be considered for admission. Such applicants may be resident anywhere. All available academic/educational documents must be submitted. An interview may be required.

Special Students

Special Students do not need to fulfill any of the academic requirements outlined previously but are required to have the necessary music prerequisites for the courses concerned. Registration is subject to the availability of space in the course(s) concerned. Special Students are normally not entitled to lessons in an instrument or in voice. Registration is permitted for one year only, after which time the student must apply for admission to either the B.Mus. or the L.Mus. program.

Visiting Students

Individuals wishing to take courses at McGill for credit at another university may be admitted as Visiting Students provided they have the prerequisites for the course(s) concerned and have official permission from their home university.

4.4 Diploma Programs

L.Mus. (All Applicants)

For admission to the Licentiate program, the applicant must have completed secondary school. The applicant's music qualifications must be equivalent to McGill Conservatory Collegial II Instrument or Voice and Secondary V Theory/Ear Training. An entrance audition is required.

Artist Diploma (All Applicants)

For admission to the Artist Diploma program, the applicant must have a Bachelor of Music degree in Performance, the Licentiate in Music of the McGill Faculty of Music, or the equivalent and must pass a performance audition.

4.5 Music Placement Examinations

All applicants must sit diagnostic placement examinations in Theory, Musicianship (Ear Training), Music History, Keyboard Proficiency and, for jazz majors, Jazz Materials, in order to determine their course levels. General placement/advanced standing examinations will be given during the week prior to the beginning of classes in September.

Students accepted into either the Licentiate Diploma (L.Mus.) or the Artist Diploma, who have completed the degree of Bachelor of Music at a Canadian or American university (or the equivalent elsewhere) within the preceding three (3) years will not be required to sit the Music Placement Examinations and will be exempted from required Theory, Musicianship, and Music History, Literature or Performance Practice courses. Should such students wish to avail themselves of the diagnostic service that the Music Placement Examinations provide, they may sit them - without, however, being bound by the recommendation generated from their results. Nevertheless, should great difficulties arise in a specific class because of lack of adequate preparation, the Department Chair, upon the advice of the instructor, reserves the right to counsel the student to undertake studies at a lower level.

4.6 Keyboard Proficiency Test (MUSP 170)

Students entering any of the B.Mus. or L.Mus. programs should be prepared to demonstrate, in a Keyboard Proficiency Test, keyboard skills sufficient to enable them to use the piano as a tool in their studies at McGill.

Those who are unable to do so must register continuously for Keyboard Proficiency MUSP 170 until they successfully complete the course. Majors in Jazz Performance must enrol in MUJZ 170. Students in Jazz Performance who have completed MUJZ 170 and MUJZ 171, and who transfer to a Department of Theory program, will be required to complete MUSP 171. Students who have been admitted to a degree or diploma program with keyboard as their principal instrument are exempt from the MUSP 170 Test (but not from MUSP 171).

The requirements of the test are as follows:

Students will not be allowed to proceed with higher-level Musicianship or Theory studies until these requirements are met. Exact test dates are determined by the Department of Theory.

4.7 Re-Admission

Students in satisfactory standing, who have not been registered in the Faculty of Music for one or two terms, may return to the program in which they were previously registered upon permission of the Faculty. Those who have been out for longer than two terms may be re-admitted upon permission of the Faculty, subject to the student's previous record and current Faculty limitations on enrolment, but will be required to re-audition. Students wishing to return must submit a request in writing to the Student Affairs Office, giving a summary of their activities during their absence, and complete a Re-Admission Application Form. The deadline for the September session is January 15; for the January session, November 1.

Grades in theoretical subjects are calculated on the basis of classwork and/or examinations. Students are warned that by missing examinations or classwork they risk failure in the subject concerned.

6.1 Ensemble Policy and Regulations

A. Preamble

The ensemble program comprises areas of activity designed to provide an enriched and cohesive curriculum in practical musicianship for every student. Much of this training is accomplished in the context of a large instrumental or choral ensemble, or specialized ensembles, over the three-year period that students normally spend on undergraduate studies.

Students are advised to check their program carefully in order to verify their basic (large) and small ensemble requirements.

Basic (large) Ensemble: All students registered as full-time or part-time students in the Department of Performance must audition for, and participate in, a basic (large) ensemble.

This means that a student from the Province of Quebec must have a minimum of 12 credits for basic ensemble in order to graduate. A student from outside the province must have a minimum of 16 credits in order to graduate. In those cases where a student in the orchestral training program is registered for additional sessions, he/she must also register for basic ensemble for each additional session. (For exemptions, see section K.)

A student in the orchestral training program who is not assigned a basic ensemble following the auditions in either September or January because there is not a space available may substitute either

Small Ensemble: With the exception of students registered in the regular Voice program, all students registered as full-time or part-time students in the Department of Performance must audition for, and participate in, a small ensemble.

A student must have a minimum of 6 credits for small ensemble in order to graduate. With the exception of Keyboard, Guitar and Jazz students, this is an ongoing requirement.

Performance majors as well as sufficiently advanced players and singers from other programs are encouraged to participate in one or more small ensembles which meet their particular interest.

This policy and its regulations apply to all students performing in all ensembles, large or small, required, complementary, or elective. They apply also to all students who have been assigned to an ensemble for any reason, including conducting students, composers- and arrangers-in-residence, and others.

Important: This policy also applies to all students enrolled in vocal and instrumental techniques classes (MUCT 235, MUCT 335, MUIT 201, MUIT 202, MUIT 203, MUIT 204, MUIT 301, MUIT 302) and in choral and instrumental conducting classes (MUCT 315, MUCT 415, MUIT 315, MUIT 415) who are required to participate in Music Education ensemble labs.

STUDENTS IN THESE LABS MUST FILL OUT REQUEST FORMS FOR ALL ABSENCES, INCLUDING ALL FIELD TRIPS IN WHICH THEY MAY PARTICIPATE. These forms should be returned to the Chair of the Music Education Area, not to the Ensemble Committee; students should consult the Chair of the Music Education Area for further details.

Note:

In all cases where the term "Director" of an ensemble is used, it is understood to mean the conductor, director, stage director or coach of the ensemble.

B. Basic Ensemble Training and Assigned Small
Ensembles

Basic Ensemble Training requirements vary by program and according to the student's practical concentration. For ensemble purposes, the orchestral instruments include flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, french horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, percussion, harp, violin, viola, cello and double bass. Students studying these instruments will receive their Basic Ensemble Training in the large instrumental ensembles. Students whose principal instrument is other than one of these (except voice majors) will normally receive their Basic Ensemble Training in the choral ensembles. Voice majors may choose from a group of vocal and choral ensembles appropriate to the level of their development.

In all programs which specify an assigned small ensemble, the following are considered assigned small ensembles:

 
MUEN 480
Early Music Ensemble
 
MUEN 485
Mixed Ensembles
 
MUEN 489
Woodwind Ensembles
 
MUEN 491
Brass Ensembles
 
MUEN 498
Percussion Ensembles
 
MUEN 499
String Ensembles

C. Additional Ensembles

Additional ensembles chosen by students to reflect their particular interests may, with Departmental approval, be applied as Music Elective credit. Students electing an ensemble will normally be required to audition and will be placed accordingly.

D. Assignment and Auditions

All students registered as full-time or part-time students in the Department of Performance must audition for a basic ensemble in September and, where applicable, in January (e.g., woodwind and brass players in the orchestral training program). A student who cannot audition for a basic ensemble at the times indicated in the calendar must give due notice to the Performance Department of their non-availability at least five days before the date of the first audition. The student must have a valid reason (i.e., illness, death in the family, career commitment, etc.). If a student misses an audition for reasons unacceptable to the Performance Department, that student will not be allowed to audition for that semester and the requirement will have to be fulfilled later in order that the student can graduate. If the reason given is valid, the student will audition for whatever positions remain unassigned upon his/her arrival at the Faculty.

Assignments are posted on the Department of Performance notice board. Re-assignments or subsequent auditions may be made from time to time during a term and will also be posted. Jazz Majors in the rhythm section sightreading ensemble must audition every semester. Students are reminded that auditions for major ensembles are mandatory. Students who do not take the auditions cannot be assigned to any major ensembles, and they would have to make up the credit at a later time.

In the case of the Jazz Ensembles, an open challenge system is used as follows:

E. Commitment

Ensembles are courses. Each student who has registered for an ensemble, or who has been assigned to or who is auditing an ensemble, has made a commitment to the ensemble and is required to attend all rehearsals, concerts, performances, field trips, recordings and other activities which constitute the course requirements of that ensemble. Except for reasons of ill health or in the case of an excused absence granted by the Ensemble Committee (see Section G, below), any absence may result in a failing grade for the student.

F. Failing Grade

A failing grade in any of the mandatory ensembles (Basic Ensemble, assigned small ensemble, complementary or elective ensemble) obliges the student to make up the credit at a later date. A subsequent failure in the same course may result in the student being required to withdraw from the Faculty.

G. Request to be Excused from a Rehearsal

ANY STUDENT WHO CANNOT ATTEND A REHEARSAL OR COACHING SESSION FOR ANY ENSEMBLE IS REQUIRED TO FILL OUT A REQUEST TO BE EXCUSED FROM ENSEMBLE FORM. THIS FORM IS AVAILABLE FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF PERFORMANCE OFFICE (E222).

Students are required to submit a completed copy of this form to the Department of Performance office (E222) at least eight (8) days prior to the rehearsal or coaching session which will be missed, stating the reason for the request. Students who have missed a rehearsal or coaching session due to illness must submit one of these forms within three (3) days of returning to school. In such cases a doctor's certificate or statement from the Student Health Service must be attached to the form.

Ensemble Committee meets weekly during the term to consider the requests, and approve or refuse each individual case. Students are welcome to appear at this meeting to explain particular circumstances affecting their request. Students should check the Performance notice board after the day the form is submitted to find out if their request has been approved.

Students may be excused from a rehearsal or coaching session of an ensemble for the following reasons:

For Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5, the request must be accompanied by authorization from the student's practical teacher and the appropriate area Chair. This permission is given for no more than three (3) rehearsals or coaching sessions.

Note: NO PERMISSION IS GIVEN TO BE EXCUSED FROM A DRESS REHEARSAL OR FROM A CONCERT EXCEPT FOR NO. 1 AND NO. 2 ABOVE. IN THE CASE OF OPERA MCGILL, NO ONE CAN BE EXCUSED FROM REHEARSALS DURING THE THREE (3) WEEKS PRECEEDING THE OPENING NIGHT PERFORMANCE.

Students are not excused from ensemble rehearsals or coaching sessions for either of the following reasons:

H. Preparation

If the Director of an ensemble is not satisfied with the quality of preparation that a student has been making for the ensemble, the Director shall first warn the student. This warning shall be communicated by the Director to the Ensemble Committee which shall inform the student in writing. If, in the Director's opinion, this lack of preparation continues, the student will be required to perform the music for a committee consisting of the Director of the ensemble, the Chair of the area (Orchestral Training, Choral, Opera, Voice, etc.) and the Department Chair. If this committee decides that there has been a lack of sufficient preparation, the student will be required to appear before the Ensemble Committee to show cause why he or she should not be required to withdraw.

For any particular performance, if - after a written warning to the student(s) at least two (2) weeks prior to the performance, with a copy to the Ensemble Committee - the Director, in consultation with his/her coaches, feels that the performance of a student or group of students will not meet a certain minimum standard established by the Director, the Director may cancel the performance of the student(s).

I. Discipline

The Director of an ensemble may recommend that a student withdraw from an ensemble for disciplinary reasons. A student asked to do so will be required to appear before the Ensemble Committee to show cause why he or she should not be required to withdraw.

Students who are required to withdraw from an ensemble for reasons of lack of preparation or discipline will be given a grade of "F" which will be reflected in their Grade Point Average (GPA).

J. Withdrawal

Withdrawal for any reason obliges the student to make up the credit(s) at a later date.

K. Exemption From a Required Ensemble

In order to be given permission not to participate in a required ensemble for a term or part thereof, a student must:

i. be a participant in a major national or international competition, or (in the case of voice students) be given a significant role with a recognized performing arts ensemble, and (in the case of all students) have completed the minimum number of required terms of the ensemble, and have the permission of:
1. his or her practical teacher
2. the area Chair
3. the Director of the ensemble
4. Chair of the Orchestral Training, Choral, Opera or
Voice Area (where appropriate)
5. Ensemble Committee
or
ii. have completed all program requirements except the final exam on his or her instrument
or
iii. have completed all musical requirements of his or her program, having only Arts and Science electives remaining
or
iv. have a significant medical reason.
NOTE:
1. Permission not to participate in a required or complementary ensemble for a term or part thereof is not an exemption and does not satisfy any credit requirements for a degree.
2. Students who are given permission not to participate in Orchestra (MUEN 497 or MUEN 697) for a term or part thereof may be ineligible to hold an Orchestral Instruments Scholarship for that term and may be ineligible for consideration for an Orchestral Instruments Scholarship for the following year based on that term.

L. Substitution of an Ensemble

1. In order to be given permission to substitute another large ensemble for a required or complementary large ensemble for a term, a student must:
 
i.
have completed the minimum number of terms in the required or complementary large ensemble
   
and
 
ii.
have the permission as in K.i. (1-5) above, with the added condition that the Director of the required or complementary large ensemble may refuse consent for the simple reason that the student is needed in that ensemble.
2. Keyboard and Guitar Performance majors in all programs may substitute up to two (2) terms of Studio Accompanying (MUEN 484) for two (2) terms of Choral Ensemble.
3. Performance majors are not permitted to substitute Basic Ensemble credits for required or complementary assigned small ensemble credits.

M. Rotation

Whenever possible and musically satisfactory, and in order to ensure equal opportunity and experience for students in the large instrumental ensembles, the seating of students in these ensembles may be rotated periodically throughout the term or year. The Director of the ensemble will determine whether or not rotation is possible and musically satisfactory.

N. Missed Classes due to Field Trips

Situations will arise where students are required to miss classes - both in the Faculty of Music as well as in other faculties - because of field trips. Teaching staff in the Faculty of Music are encouraged to assist students who approach them for information about course content and assignments that have been missed. Nonetheless, the onus remains on the student who goes on a field trip to complete class work.

O. Transfer Credits

The previous ensemble participation of students coming to McGill from other universities will be recognized if their ensemble experience was similar to that required of McGill students. In general, transfer credit is made on a term for term basis (not by credits) and usually does not exceed two (2) terms. Students are normally not permitted to reduce the Basic Ensemble Training requirements of their McGill program to less than the number of terms required for them to complete the rest of their program. In such cases, transfer credit may be given as Music Elective credit.

P. Extra Basic Ensemble Training Credits

Basic Ensemble Training credits accumulated above the minimum may be applied as Music Elective credits.

Q. Performance Music Library

Students are responsible for the music which has been loaned to them for their use, and for its return in good condition to the Performance Music Library. Students will be required to pay for the replacement of any music which has been lost, stolen or damaged.

6.2 Accompanying

All Faculty of Music students registered for practical instruction (including elective study) are eligible for subsidized accompaniment up to a specified maximum number of hours. Students wishing to use this program should request further details from the Department of Performance office.

6.3 Academic Category

All students in the Music Faculty are registered in one of the following categories:

Major:

B.Mus. candidates may choose one or more of several
majors as described under section 7 "Programs of Study".

Honours:

A more intensive program than a major, B.Mus. students may choose one or more honours programs as described under section 7 "Programs of Study". Generally, an honours degree in the appropriate field is prerequisite to graduate study.

Faculty Program:

A general B.Mus. program (see section 7.2.8 "Faculty Program").

L.Mus., Artist Dip.:

Students in diploma programs, as described in section 7.3 "Department of Performance".

Special:

Those who are not proceeding towards a degree or diploma.

Visiting:

Those taking courses at McGill for credit towards a degree at another university.

6.4 Auditing

In general, auditing is not permitted in Faculty of Music courses. With the permission of the Departmental Chair concerned, students may audit a course which is not a required course in their program. It should be noted that auditors are not registered for such courses, that the instructor is not expected to correct any assignments or papers done by an auditor, and that an auditor may neither write an examination in that subject nor receive any credit for such course. Auditing is not permitted for Special or Visiting students.

6.5 Music Electives

Unless otherwise specified, any music course numbered at the 200 level or higher which is not a required course in the student's program can be counted as a Music Elective in the B.Mus. or Artist Diploma programs. Two credits per term of practical instruction may be applied as Music Electives only if the lessons are taken after completion of the final examination required in the student's program. Practical instruction in a second instrument may be taken for elective credit at the -100 level under certain conditions. Consult the Department of Performance for details. Basic Ensemble credits accumulated above the minimum may be applied as Music Elective credits.

6.6 Arts and Science Electives

In all B.Mus. programs, students are required to complete a minimum of 18 elective credits from courses offered by the Faculties of Arts or Science (or other faculties, with the approval of the student's Departmental Chair). Students admitted from high schools outside Quebec, not holding a DCS, must complete an additional 6 credits of Arts and Science electives for a total of 24. Students holding a DCS in a non-Music program are exempt from 6 credits of their requirement. Students should note that certain programs have requirements in addition to the above.

The Faculty of Music allows up to 12 credits in English as a Second Language as an Arts elective in the B.Mus. program. These credits may be taken in the Faculty of Arts at the Intermediate or Advanced level OR they may be taken at the Centre for Continuing Education at level 4 or above.

6.7 Course Changes

Students are permitted to change courses and/or sections of a course during the first two-week period of classes in each term.

This is referred to as the official Course Change Period. Course and section changes are made by the student, using Minerva to access his/her record directly. Worksheets for this purpose are available at the Student Affairs Office in the Strathcona Music Building.

Late course change requests, if approved, will be processed only upon payment of a fee of $25. No charge will be made for late changes imposed by the Faculty. If students' registrations must be corrected after the Course Change Period to bring their records into conformity with the courses they are actually taking, the students will be charged the late fee.

6.8 Withdrawal from Course(s)

Students are permitted to withdraw from courses other than practical instruction or ensembles after the end of the Course Change Period. In such cases the student's mark in the course will be W. Course withdrawals are also processed on Minerva, within permissible dates.

The final deadlines for withdrawing from Music courses are:

For a one-term course: The end of the seventh week of classes.

For a two-term course: The end of the Course Change period in the second term.

THE DEADLINE FOR WITHDRAWING FROM PRACTICAL LESSONS AND ENSEMBLES IS THE END OF THE SECOND WEEK OF CLASSES IN ANY TERM.

Music students who, in special circumstances such as illness or injury, are given permission to withdraw from practical instruction after the end of the Course Change Period will be charged $65 per week (for 1-hour lessons; $97.50 for 1½ hours) up to a maximum equivalent to the total fees charged for the course. Full refunds for practical instruction will be given up to the end of the Course Change Period.

Note:

Students who do not complete a course for which they remain registered will receive a grade of F or J.

For information on the REFUND POLICY, please refer to Regulations Concerning Withdrawal.

6.9 Incompletes

At the discretion of the instructor, a mark of K (Incomplete) may be given to a student who, due to extenuating circumstances, has not finished the course work on time. The deadline for completion and submission of the required work shall be set by the instructor but may not be later than four months after the K was given. A special form for incompletes, available from the Student Affairs Office, must be signed by the student and the instructor by the last day of lectures. If the "Incomplete" is not removed by this time, the mark will be changed to KF (Incomplete Failed), unless an extension has been granted (K*). Completion of the course will cause the K to be replaced on official transcripts by the mark earned. A mark of K not cleared by mid-May makes the student ineligible for scholarships.

In exceptional cases, when research or an assignment cannot be completed for reasons beyond the student's control, students may be given permission by their Departmental Chair or the Student Progress Committee to leave a course permanently incomplete (without penalty). The symbol K will be replaced by KK, in which case the student's Grade Point Average will be calculated without including this course.

6.10 Deferrals

Deferred examinations are permitted in case of illness or other exceptional circumstances. A written request for the deferment of an examination (with the exception of practical examinations) must be submitted to the Senior Academic Advisor; a practical music examination, to the Performance Department Chair.

A deferred examination will be entered as L, which will be replaced on official transcripts by the actual mark when the examination is written. A mark of L not cleared by mid-May makes the student ineligible for scholarships.

6.11 Supplementals

Supplemental examinations may be given at the discretion of the instructor. A student who receives a mark below 30% in a course is not permitted to take a supplemental examination but must repeat the course.

6.12 Re-Reading of Examinations

A student wishing to have an examination paper re-read should apply in writing to the Departmental Chair. There is a non-refundable fee of $35. The mark given in the re-reading, whether higher or lower, will replace the mark originally given. Any request to have a term paper or other course work reassessed must be made directly to the instructor concerned.

6.13 Academic Standing

Academic standing is based primarily on students' cumulative grade point average (CGPA), but may also be affected by their term grade point average (TGPA). Academic standing, which is assessed after the end of each term, determines if students will be allowed to continue their studies in the next term and if any conditions will be attached to their registration.

Decisions about academic standing in the fall term are based only on grades that are available in January. Grades for courses in which students have deferred examinations and fall-term grades for courses that span the fall and winter terms do not affect academic standing for the fall term, even though they will ultimately affect students' fall TGPA. Therefore, academic standings for the fall term are designated as "interim" and should be interpreted as advisory; moreover, interim standings will not appear on external transcripts. Interim standing decisions are mentioned below only if the rules for them differ from those for regular standing decisions.

Satisfactory/Interim Satisfactory Standing

Students in satisfactory standing may continue in their program.

Probationary/Interim Probationary Standing

Students in interim probationary standing may continue in their program, but should evaluate their course load and reduce it as appropriate. They are strongly advised to consult a departmental advisor, before the withdrawal deadlines, about their course selection for the winter term.

Readmitted Unsatisfactory Standing

Students who were previously in unsatisfactory standing and who were readmitted to the Faculty by the Dean will have their standing changed to readmitted unsatisfactory standing. Their course load is specified in their letter of readmission as are the conditions they must meet to be allowed to continue in their program. They should see the Senior Academic Advisor to discuss their course selection.

Unsatisfactory/Interim Unsatisfactory Standing

Students in interim unsatisfactory standing may continue in their program, but should evaluate their course load and reduce it as appropriate. They are strongly advised to consult the Senior Academic Advisor, before the withdrawal deadlines, about their course selection for the winter term.

Students in unsatisfactory standing who have failed to meet the minimum standards set by the Faculty may not continue in their program and their registration will be canceled.

Appeals for readmission by students in unsatisfactory standing should be addressed to the Dean no later than July 15 for readmission to the fall term and November 15 for the winter term. Readmission will be considered only when proof of extenuating circumstances that affected academic performance can be provided (e.g., medical or other documentation). Students in unsatisfactory standing for the second time must withdraw permanently.

Normally, supplemental examinations are not permitted; however, students in unsatisfactory standing may appeal to the Senior Academic Advisor for permission to write a supplemental examination, clearly stating the reasons for special consideration and providing proof as appropriate.

Incomplete Standings

Standing awaits deferred exam.
Must clear K's, L's or Supplementals.
Standing Incomplete.

Students with incomplete standings in the winter or summer term may register for the fall term, but their standing must be resolved by the end of the course-change period for that term. Students whose incomplete standing changes to satisfactory, probationary, or interim unsatisfactory standing may continue in the program. Students whose standing changes to unsatisfactory standing may not continue in their program.

Students whose standing changes to unsatisfactory and who wish to ask for permission to continue in their program must make a request to the Dean as soon as they are placed in unsatisfactory standing. Readmission will be considered only when proof of extenuating circumstances that affected academic performance can be provided (e.g., medical or other documentation).

Students whose standing is still incomplete by the end of Course Change Period should immediately consult with the Student Affairs Office.

6.14 Graduation Requirements

6.15 Graduation with Distinction

Students in B.Mus. programs whose academic performance is appropriate may be awarded their degrees with Distinction or High Distinction on the basis of their CGPA under the following conditions:

Departments may recommend to the Faculty that students be awarded Outstanding Achievement in recognition of superior performance on an instrument or in an academic discipline.

The designation Dean's Honour List may be awarded to a graduating student who, on the basis of his/her CGPA, is among the top 10% of the B.Mus. graduating class.

7 Programs of Study

7.1 Four-Year Program (Prerequisite Courses)

Students who hold a high school graduation diploma (minimum years of schooling: 12 years) from other provinces, the United States or overseas may apply for admission to any of the Major or Honours programs leading to the Bachelor of Music Degree, and may be admitted to a program of approximately 120 credits, normally requiring four years to complete. These programs will include the following prerequisite courses in addition to the requirements listed in 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 or 7.5:

7.2 Department of Theory:
Composition; Music Education; Music History; Music Technology; Theory; Faculty Program

The Department embraces the disciplines of Composition, Music Education, Music History, Music Technology, and Theory at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and Sound Recording at the graduate level. The philosophy of the Department is to encourage integration of the disciplines as much as possible within the learning process in each program of study: the development of basic musicianship, the absorption of the grammar and syntax of musical discourse, and the study of the world of ideas are understood as interconnected.

Honours programs provide a high degree of specialization and are a foundation for graduate-level study leading to academic careers in each discipline. Majors programs offer the student some focus with the flexibility to pursue other areas of interest. The Faculty Program is intended to offer an option for individual and creative plans of study. All of the Department's programs give a solid grounding in analytic, synthetic, and writing skills that are useful preparation not only for the musical profession but also for professions as diverse as law, journalism, management, and librarianship.

The Music Education program combines an orientation towards a professional career in primary and secondary schools with sensitivity to broader intellectual frameworks against which teachers should understand their roles. This program is offered concurrently with the B.Ed., Music.

Music Technology encourages interaction between musical creation, technology and research. The pedagogical goal of the Music Technology program is to provide students with an environment for professional-level music training with an intensive focus on programming of advanced music technologies. This training prepares students to meet the technological demands of contemporary composition and performance practice, and offers students a wide range of employment possibilities in the music technology and media industries.

The Department also offers a Minor in Music History to performance majors who seek to place their work in a larger context, and a Minor in Music Technology to Music and to B.A. and B.Sc. students.

All full-time students in B.Mus. programs who have not been exempted from History Survey MUHL 184 and MUHL 185 on the basis of placement examinations are required to enrol in one or both courses in their first year of study at the Faculty of Music and until such time as they obtain a passing grade in each. (Upon the recommendation of the adviser and the approval of the Chair of the Department of Theory, this requirement may be deferred for one year.)

For each program, all courses listed are REQUIRED Courses unless otherwise indicated.

7.2.8 Faculty Program

The Faculty Program in Music has been designed to accommodate those students who are either undecided about the area of music in which they wish to specialize, or who are interested in a pattern of specialization not provided in the established majors and honours programs, or who are interested in combining studies in music with studies in other disciplines. Students registered in the Faculty Program may, with the approval of a staff adviser, design their own programs around specific interests or develop programs with a broader base by incorporating courses from other disciplines.

7.3 Department of Performance

The Department offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs leading to the B.Mus. and M.Mus., and diploma programs leading to the L.Mus. and Artist Diploma in all areas of musical performance. Programs include regular practical instruction available on all instruments and a highly developed ensemble program. The programs offer a number of major options including Orchestral Training, Solo, Jazz, Early Music, and Church Music. The Orchestral Training program is the largest performance program - many of its graduates are now members of professional orchestras throughout North America and Europe. McGill ensembles perform many concerts each year, including a number in centres across North America. (Within the past several years, McGill ensembles have performed at Carnegie Hall, Le Grand Théâtre (Québec), the National Arts Centre, the International Buxtehude-Scheidt Festival, Lincoln Center, Roy Thomson Hall, Salle Wilfrid Pelletier, the International Association of Jazz Educators Convention in New Orleans, in Washington and Boston, Paris, London and Cork [Ireland], and at the Holetown Festival in Barbados.) In addition, they have recorded for McGill Records. These recordings have received considerable critical acclaim and a number of awards, including a Noah Greenberg Award, three Grand Prix du Disques, and a Juno Award.

Performance Specialization is available in: Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass, Viola da Gamba, Guitar, Harp, Recorder, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Saxophone, Bassoon, French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, Percussion, Piano, Organ, Harpsichord, Voice, Baroque Instruments (Violin, Viola, Cello, Flute, Oboe, Bassoon). Performance Programs are also available in Church Music, Early Music, and Jazz.

All full-time students in B.Mus. programs who have not been exempted from History Survey MUHL 184 and MUHL 185 on the basis of placement examinations are required to enrol in one or both courses in their first year of study at the Faculty of Music and until such time as they obtain a passing grade in each. (Upon the recommendation of the adviser and the approval of the Chair of the Department of Theory, this requirement may be deferred for one year.)

The course MUPG 100 Life as a Professional Musician is a requirement for all Performance students to be completed within the first year of study.

For each program, all courses listed are REQUIRED Courses unless otherwise indicated.
