UWM Undergraduate Catalog 2017-2018


Peck School of the Arts


Music




Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Music offers courses of study in Music Performance (Winds, Brass, Percussion, Strings, Piano, Voice, and Guitar), Music Education, Music History and Literature, and Music Composition and Technology. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program is designed for students seeking intensive study to develop those skills needed for a professional career and/or preparation for graduate school. The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree is designed for students looking for a broad-based understanding of multiple aspects of Music in addition to areas outside of the Music field. Our faculty and programs maintain strong partnerships with performance organizations in Milwaukee and the surrounding region providing a vibrant urban location that puts students in the cultural mainstream of a thriving and sophisticated metropolis of more than one million people.  

The department is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) and provides professional training and personal enrichment as the main focus of the Music curriculum. Visit us at: uwm.edu/arts/music/.

The various undergraduate curricula lead to the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music, Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Education, or Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. The following courses of study are available:

Music Performance. A curriculum in voice, keyboard, or another instrument that prepares the student for both professional performance and studio teaching.

Collaborative Piano-Vocal. A curriculum with an emphasis on vocal arts is one of few such undergraduate programs offered nationwide. It offers training for pianists anticipating careers in vocal accompanying, as well as coaching art song, opera, and musical theatre. Students receive weekly lessons in collaborative piano, as well as solo piano, and piano technique. They also participate in rehearsals and performances for the UWM Opera Theatre, Milwaukee Opera Theatre, and UWM choirs.

Music Education. A curriculum in choral, instrumental, and/or general (K-12) music education culminating in certification by the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction that prepares students to teach music in elementary and secondary schools.

Music History and Literature. A curriculum that focuses on the historical and critical study of music and prepares the student for specialization and graduate work in musicology, music librarianship, and music criticism.

Music Composition and Technology. A curriculum that prepares the student for a professional career in composition and specialization in creative musical writing and related analytical skills and electronic music software applications.

Bachelor of Arts in Music. A general Music degree designed for Music students interested in combining a Music major with a second major or minor in a non-music degree program.

 

Graduate Programs

The various graduate curricula lead to the Master of Music with concentrations in Music Performance, Conducting, Music Composition, Music History and Literature, and Music Education. (See the Graduate School Bulletin for details.)

The Leonard Sorkin International Institute of Chamber Music is a two-year program leading to a Certificate in Chamber Music Performance.

 

Music for the Non-Major

While professional training is the main thrust of the UWM Music curricula, the department offers many personal enrichment courses for the non-music major. UWM students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of performing organizations such as the University Advanced Women’s Choir, Concert Chorale, Women’s Chorus, University Men’s Chorus, Collegium Musicum, Gospel Choir, University Band, Symphony Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Symphony Orchestra, and University Community Orchestra. The following academic Music courses are also offered: Introduction to Classical Music, The Concert Experience, Introduction to World Musics, American Popular Music, Fundamentals of Music (Theory), Class Voice, Beginning and Intermediate Guitar, and Beginning and Intermediate Piano.

Private music lessons are also offered to the non-music major under the following conditions:

  1. A successful audition placement into a recognized Music major ensemble.
  2. Successful audition placement will allow concurrent registration into an appropriate private performance lesson.
  3. Consent of instructor and availability of instructional time.
  4. For further information contact the Department of Music at (414) 229-5217.

 

Admission, Audition, and Scholarship Procedures

Throughout the year, the Music Department schedules new student audition days. In addition to meeting the general University admission requirements, a prospective Music degree candidate must successfully complete an audition in his or her primary performance area (Principal Instrument), and take a music theory and piano placement exam. Composition majors must submit original works as a Composition Portfolio to the Composition faculty for consideration. In certain degree programs, students must successfully pass an audition on a secondary instrument as required.

Pre-Music Education majors must audition for the certification program with the Music Education Area, while enrolled in Mus Ed 350, preferably in their fourth semester.

Students accepted through auditions who lack basic aural, theory, and/or keyboard skills must successfully complete Music 1 (Theory Fundamentals) and/or MusPerf 1 (Piano Fundamentals) in their first year of study. A final grade of B or higher is required to enroll in the subsequent Music Theory and Piano courses.

Provisional. Students declared Provisional at the time of auditions could achieve Music major status based on the successful Jury performance at the end of the first semester. Students not performing a successful first semester jury will not be allowed to continue as a Music major and will be dropped from the Music department. Provisional students must take all required first-semester Music courses during the provisional semester.

Probation. A Music major who has a studio performance grade of C or lower for two consecutive semesters may be placed on Music Department Probation. (2.75 GPA is required for continuation in the Music Education degree program.) Cleared Probation: Either re-audition or a passing grade for the performance lessons and final Jury is attained during the semester of probation and a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above.

Not Accepted. Prospective students not accepted at their initial audition are allowed one additional audition opportunity.

Re-Audition. Required after an absence of two consecutive semesters from the UWM Music Department as a Music major actively progressing toward degree. The returning student must successfully re-audition in their principal area. The Music Education major must re-audition in their principal area and re-interview with the Music Education faculty.

Transfer students. All transfer students must audition on their principal instrument, be accepted by the faculty in their course of study, and take placement exams in Music Theory and Piano. Transfer students must enroll in the level of Music Theory recommended by the Theory Area. Undergraduate transfer students who have completed two years at another university, college, or junior college may not be able to graduate with only two years of study at UWM. Students transferring from another Music Education program should contact the Chair of the Music Education area prior to audition.

Scholarship. If you wish to be considered for a Music scholarship, you are encouraged to audition no later than March of the school year preceding your intended matriculation. Lists of suggested repertoire, which can serve as a helpful guideline for your audition, can be obtained from the Peck School of the Arts Department of Music website at: uwm.edu/arts/scholarships/. For additional information, contact the Music Department at (414) 229-5217.

Music Composition and Technology

Required Composition and Theory Background. All potential Composition majors must show evidence of compositional ability before acceptance to the program. Indicating intent on the Music Department audition form does not automatically place the student into the program. Each applicant must submit a Composition Portfolio (see below) of his/her previous compositional work to the Composition faculty. The portfolio acts as the equivalent of an audition. Prospective students seeking to enter this program must also be able to begin at the Music 123 and 127 level as determined by the Theory Placement Exam. Those students who do not meet this criterion may be advised to enter the program on a Provisional basis, but must take Music 1, Theory Fundamentals, receive a final grade of B or better, and resubmit his/her Composition Portfolio before a final admission and placement decision is determined by the Music Composition Area.

Required Application Portfolio. The Composition Portfolio should contain the applicant’s best three to five representative works. At least one copy of a written score is required. The score may be of any ensemble configuration, from large ensemble to piano solo. Computer-generated scores, or digital software compositions are accepted but not required. Evidence of audio recordings in an appropriate digital audio format, fixed media, web-based, or comparable format is expected. The compositions on the recordings may or may not be the same compositional scores submitted with your portfolio. Other possible formats for compositions are Standard MIDI File, an image file or movie of a composition’s performance, or sound track to a video work. This latter may be a collaborative work with video artist(s). Group compositions are not acceptable. There is no particular style requirement for applicants, nor is there a duration requirement for his/her representative works. However, they must be complete works.

Required Piano Proficiency. Depending upon audition results, students may be required to enroll in MusPerf 1, Fundamentals of Piano, for up to two semesters or until they can pass a satisfactory piano audition through the Piano faculty. Those placed at the 100 level must take a minimum of four semesters of piano. All students entering at the 200 level must take two semesters of piano. Piano proficiency at the 200 level is satisfied by demonstrated ability to play works of moderate difficulty, such as Bach’s Two-part Inventions, Bartok’s Mikrokosmos Book IV, Schumann’s “Kinderszenen,” or Easy to Intermediate Classics. Deficiencies are made up without credit.

A student who is deficient in any of the above may be admitted provisionally, but only after evaluation and approval by the Composition Area. Contact the Composition Area for further information.

Graduation Requirements. Completion of the BFA in Music Composition and Technology will require each student to compose a minimum of five compositions over the lifetime of their program. While a minimum of three works must be written for solo or small ensemble, and one work for solo electronic or combined electronic and acoustic instrument(s), one work may be for large ensemble (orchestra, chamber, wind symphony, or choir). Of the five works required, three works must be presented publicly, each a minimum of nine minutes in duration.

Senior Recital or Thesis Requirement. In the semester the student intends to graduate, he/she must either register for Senior Recital or Senior Thesis. Registering for Senior Recital stipulates a public recital of the student’s compositions lasting a minimum of one hour in duration. Registering for Senior Thesis requires the student to submit the following to the Composition Faculty: a final composition portfolio, which consists of the five required compositions, along with recordings (as available). Additionally, printed programs representing the public presentation of three works are required.

Peck School of the Arts Requirements. Music Composition and Technology majors must take a minimum of 3 credits in Film and 3 credits in Art when fulfilling their 12 credits in the Peck School of the Arts, outside of Music. Suggested courses are “Special Topics: Web or Multimedia” courses or subtitled workshops in the digital arts on the department level.

Music Education (Bachelor of Fine Arts with Teacher Certification)

A student wishing to enroll in a Music Education course of study must demonstrate high musical skills at the admission auditions. In addition, he or she must possess background experiences with children and a strong desire to help students discover the joys and challenges of music. Five sub-majors are possible: instrumental, instrumental/general music, choral, choral/general music, and general music. Instrumentalists may major in the instrumental, instrumental/general music, or general music programs. Vocalists, pianists, and guitarists should follow the choral, choral/general music, or general music programs. During the first semester of enrollment, the student must schedule an interview with the Music Education advisor.

Human Relations Requirement. See School of Education, Curriculum for Teacher Education Programs.

Certification. The Music Department course of study prepares students for recommendation for certification by the State Department of Public Instruction to teach and supervise Music Early Childhood - Adolescence (EC-A or Wide Range - Birth to Age 21).

A student wishing certification must successfully audition and apply for admission to the Peck School of the Arts. For admission to the Teacher Certification Program, each student must audition in the Education Area at the completion of MUS ED 350 (Introduction to Music Education) taken in the spring semester of the sophomore year. Following admission to the Music Education Program (see admission requirements), and successful completion of the specified Music Education course of studies, a student seeking recommendation for teacher certification must successfully fulfill the following requirements:

  1. Fulfill all degree requirements;
  2. Show personal qualities giving promise of success as a teacher of music and as a leader in music activities;
  3. Meet the test of Basic Skills Requirement; See Peck School of the Arts advisors;
  4. Compile at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA;
  5. Fulfill the Field Experience Requirement;
  6. Demonstrate teaching competency in their area of expertise through the use of a teaching portfolio (see explanation under Special Core Curriculum Requirements);
  7. Pass the Praxis II Music Content Exam;
  8. Successfully complete student teaching; and
  9. Passing score on the edTPA portfolio submission.

Special Core Curriculum Requirements. The following requirements can be met with courses that apply to the Core Curriculum.

Communication Competency. Students must satisfactorily complete Communication 101 or 103 within the first thirty credits in the Music Education program. The communication abilities of a student remain under constant review as a selective factor for retention in teacher certification programs.

Developmental Reading. Either CurrIns 343 or 545 will fulfill the developmental reading requirement.

Exceptional Education. State law requires 3 credits or the equivalent in study designed to inform the student of the special needs of physically and developmentally handicapped children. This requirement can be met by the completion of ExcEduc 531, 3 credits; ExcEduc 605, 3 credits; or ExcEduc 300, 3 credits; combined with required Music Education courses within the program.

Educational Psychology. Ed Psy 330 fulfills this requirement.

Music Education Core Courses Required of All Music Education Majors. Core 12 cr Student Teaching Mus Ed 477 and 478; Seminar in Student Teaching Mus Ed 479; Intro to Music Education Mus Ed 350; Field Experience Mus Ed 450.

Foreign Language: 0 - 6 cr May be fulfilled by two consecutive years of a high school instruction or a minimum six credits in a language (including American Sign Language) other than English at the college 100 level or above.

Teaching Portfolio. The Music Education Area and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction require that students compile a developmental teaching portfolio that demonstrates proficiency in their area of expertise prior to student teaching. The portfolio will be compiled as a part of their major music methods and field experience requirements. Evidence of teaching proficiency may include:

  1. Copy of current resume;
  2. Lesson plans written and taught in music methods courses and student teaching;
  3. Statement of teaching and learning philosophy;
  4. Examples of audio and video recordings from student performances as a conductor or performer;
  5. Written evaluations from cooperating teachers, university supervising teachers, and methods class instructors; and
  6. Artifacts and self-evaluations based upon microteaching and student teaching experiences.
  7. The edTPA has been selected by WI Dept. of Public Instruction as the final portfolio for student teaching. The teaching/learning segments for the edTPA evaluation are prepared and taught during the first student teaching placement. The edTPA evaluation must be completed and submitted through an outside evaluation agency at student expense and receive a passing score for licensure. Remediation if necessary of one or more ‘edTPA tasks’, should be completed prior to the end of that semester. Handbooks and guidance for this process will be embedded throughout the education certification program with specifically guided instructions during the student teaching placement.
