Applied Instruction Students will be required to demonstrate proficiency in applied areas in order to study privately. Class instruction is available for those advancing toward private study. Applied students in class instruction will not be required to sing or play in juries at the end of each semester, but will be required to fulfill the exam requirements indicated in the course syllabus. Students studying privately are expected to attend vocal/piano studio. Students should expect to spend $50.00 to $75.00 per semester for music for each applied area of private instruction. No photocopied music will be used after the first month of lessons. Voice students will be charged $75.00 per semester hour for work with a staff accompanist. Students may request to study in an applied area not offered by the Point University Fine Arts Faculty. A student must make his request in writing to the chair of the Fine Arts Department. The Fine Arts Department chair will, in turn, consult with the Vice President for Academic Affairs. This process should be discussed, completed, and formalized in writing before the semester begins. Permission is limited to students seeking advanced applied music study. Additional costs associated with approved off-campus private study will be charged to the student. Students studying applied music at Point University will need to practice approximately 5-6 hours per week per semester hour of applied instruction. Students who practice in the Keyboard Lab must use headphones/ear buds. Only students studying applied music at Point University will have access to practice rooms by swipe card. Lockers for instrumental storage are available when a deposit is paid. Upon return of the key, the deposit will be returned.

Recital Guidelines* All music students will perform either a one-hour worship concert or recitals in order to graduate. (Two/three students may present these on the same program, if the Fine Arts faculty approves.) Not all recitals can be scheduled in the evenings. Junior recitals are generally scheduled at 4:00 pm on Tuesday. Fine Arts for the recital must be memorized for a hearing before the Fine Arts faculty one month prior to the public recital. The Fine Arts faculty has the right to cancel a recital which is not memorized or not prepared to proper performance standards. The student’s applied instructor will schedule the date for the recital in consultation with the student. Student recital responsibilities include: 1.

2. 3. 4. 5.

Preparation of printed recital program and program notes must be approved by the applied instructor and submitted at the hearing. Songs in foreign language must be translated and included in the program notes. Program notes should be digitally submitted. Invitations and publicity for the recital. Ushers Securing someone to record (audio and video) the program. One copy of the recording will be filed in the Fine Arts Office. Reception following the program (optional). If there is a reception, it will be held in the Collaborative Area in the Fine Arts Center.

Students who choose the performance/pedagogy emphasis in the music degree must also perform a 50-minute senior recital. The student recital requirements for a senior recital are the same as those for the junior recital. A student must register for MAP 38_ (Junior Recital) or MAP 48_ (Senior Recital) the semester the recital is performed. Students are expected to pay their accompanists for rehearsal and performances. (See Accompanist Guidelines) Applied teachers will approve recital attire. Strapless dresses for women are not permissible. Very short or very tight dresses must be avoided. Menu and decorations for the reception must also be approved. *Further recital guidelines and details are included in the course objectives for recitals.

8


Junior Recital Requirements Repertoire: 1. The total length of music must be 25 minutes. 2. At least three/four different styles/period/genres of music must be represented. 3. Singers must perform in at least two different languages. Those students who are pursuing a performance/pedagogy specialization should include at least three languages. Deadlines: (submitted in writing to applied instructor by the second week of the semester) 1. Recital date (approved/suggested by Fine Arts faculty). 2. All appropriate forms filled out and submitted to the Fine Arts Office by the third week of the semester. 3. Recital hearing date (No public recital will be given until a successful hearing has been performed – music memorized and performed in attire approved by applied instructor about one month before the desired public performance). 4. Program notes must be approved by applied instructor and submitted at the time of the hearing. Program notes should be submitted by hard copy and digitally. 5. All sound, recording, and ushering personnel selected and verified. 6. Instrumentalists/accompanists who will be paid must be compensated by the public performance date. Program Notes: Program notes help the audience know the origin of the piece/song and understand the context for what is being communicated. Notes must not be too long: approximately two paragraphs per piece/song. Research for program notes is time-consuming, but can greatly increase the performer’s expression of the music. Ample time is necessary for the research/draft/edit/rewrite process between student and applied instructor. Program notes should include birth/death dates of each composer and pertinent biographical information. It is important for singers to indicate the author of the text, source of the text, especially when from a larger work, and a translation of texts in foreign languages. Arrangers should be noted, and in some cases are more important than composers. Information about the musical genre and historical period should be included in program notes. Students must research using numerous sources, not just the internet! Use of Wikipedia as a source is discouraged. Research can begin with Groves’ Dictionary of Music and Musicians and other library reference works. Students are encouraged to use a formal, not casual writing style, and they should put ideas in their own words. Personal statements about one’s individual feelings concerning certain pieces/songs should not be included. Information about contemporary authors/composers/arrangers (especially those in the Christian field) may be more difficult to discover. Allow for plenty of time to contact publishing companies and agents. In some cases, a performer may be able to have an interview (by phone, internet or in writing) with a composer. Such information always adds to the performing experience. Students are encouraged to be resourceful in finding information and start early!

9


Senior Recital Requirements Repertoire: 1. The total length of music must be 50 minutes. 2. At least four/five different styles/period/genres of music must be represented. 3. Singers must perform in at least three different languages. Those students who are pursuing a performance/pedagogy specialization should perform about 15-25 minutes of music in at least three languages during the senior recital. Counting junior and senior voice recitals, performance/pedagogy students should demonstrate competence in a least four languages out of the following six: Italian, German, French, Spanish, Latin, and English. Students pursuing the performance/pedagogy specialization in the B.A. degree must perform about 15 minutes of the senior recital in the language studied for the B.A. degree requirements. Deadlines: (submitted in writing to applied teacher by the second week of the semester) 1. Recital date (approved/suggested by Fine Arts faculty). 2. All appropriate forms filled out and submitted to the Fine Arts Office by the third week of the semester. 3. Recital hearing date (No public recital will be given until a successful hearing has been performed – music memorized and performed in attire approved by applied instructor about one month before the desired public performance). 4. Final draft of program notes must be approved by applied instructor and submitted at the time of the hearing. Program notes should be submitted by hard copy and digitally. 5. All sound, recording, and ushering personnel selected and verified. 6. Instrumentalists/accompanists who will be paid must be compensated by the public performance date. Program Notes: Program notes help the audience know the origin of the piece/song and understand the context for what is being communicated. Notes must not be too long: approximately two paragraphs per piece/song. Research for program notes is time-consuming, but can greatly increase the performer’s expression of the music.

Worship Concert Guidelines  MAP 470 Worship/Concert Project – 2 hours Dr. Byron Cartwright (0) 706-385-1057 Email: Byron.Cartwright@point.edu This course will cover the aspects of planning and implementation for a worship service or concert. Attention will be given to selection of a unifying theme/idea, enlisting and rehearsing participants, choice of music/materials to be presented, coordination of technical aspects, printed program, and logistical considerations. Public presentation of the worship service or concert will represent completion of course requirements. (The course may be taken one semester before the actual worship service or concert is presented.) A grade will be assigned following the public presentation. Prerequisite: senior standing and permission Goals and Objectives: The student who successfully completes this course should be able to: 1. Construct the program for a one-hour concert or worship service. 2. Develop a timeline for deadlines for concert/worship service. 3. Enlist and rehearse program participants and support personnel. 4. Define the theme/unifying concept for such a presentation. 5. Articulate logistical detail to be addressed. Course Requirements/Grading: 1. The student will meet with the professor at designated time to report progress. Progress reports will be submitted in writing. 2. A calendar of deadlines will be determined and submitted at the second class meeting. The calendar will include: 1) date/place for public presentation and forms to be completed; 2) dates for hearing one month prior to public presentation and one additional rehearsal attended by professor; 3) date for deadline of printed program materials (including program notes); 4) date by which type of program to be decided (include possible participants); 5) date by which unifying theme/idea to be firm; 6) date by which all music, spoken aspects, personnel to be firm; 7) date by which all support personnel firm (lights, sound, PowerPoint, ushers, stage workers, videotaping, etc.); 8) list of specific needs to be addressed for this concert/worship service; and 9) teardown and event follow-up. This calendar, once approved, becomes the binding timeline for public presentation. Preparation of the calendar should be as detailed as possible and will count 30% of the grade. 3. The actual concert/worship event concept should be detailed in writing (including specific musical selections and times) and specify target audience, primary/secondary goals (such as worship, education, evangelism, community outreach, entertainment, holiday, etc.). Give a rationale for each selection included in the program. The concert/worship event should be conceived as suitable for a church service, but more exceptional in form and content. Include visual and logistical goals. The written account counts 20% of the grade. 4. The professor will attend one full rehearsal in addition to the hearing. Public presentation of the event will count 50% of the course grade.

Piano Proficiency/Class Piano All music majors are required to meet four piano proficiency requirements before graduation. Music majors and minors are required to enroll in the appropriate music theory/functional skills the same semester they are enrolled in piano class. A detailed explanation of the piano proficiency requirements (as they relate to music theory and functional skills) is available from Dr. Katie Cartwright. The student who passes the piano proficiencies requirements may exempt required class piano hours; however, the academic hours required in applied piano must be achieved by taking other music electives. The Fine Arts community strongly encourages such a student to study private piano. Piano majors who are placed in private piano study because of advanced skill level will also meet the requirements of the piano proficiencies with the applied teacher. Beginning Piano Class Level One and Intermediate Piano Class Level Three are offered in the fall semester. Beginning Piano Class Level Two and Advanced Piano Class Level Four are offered in the spring semester. The piano proficiency requirements must be met in order to graduate.
