MUSI 2023B (0-0-0) Piano Proficiency Level IV
The student will enroll in this course number concurrently with Applied Piano (MUSI 1120, 1220, 2120, or 2220) while attempting to pass Piano Proficiency Level IV. MUSI 2023B serves as transcript verification for mastery of the keyboard skills listed under MUSI 2023A: Piano Proficiency Level III as well as the following: specific black-key major scales played hands together, an original improvisatory arrangement of “Happy Birthday” with accompaniment for practical use, a memorized performance of “Star-Spangled Banner,” sight reading from a prescribed Level IV hymn list as well as two memorized repertoire pieces of contrasting style. The student will perform these skills for a faculty jury. The average of the jury grades must be 70% or higher to constitute completion of the level. A deficiency in any skill area may result in an average below 70%. A jury average below 70% does not constitute completion of the level; therefore the student will receive a grade of NC (No Credit). A jury average of 70% or higher constitutes successful completion of the level and the student will receive a semester grade of CR (Credit). The student must enroll in MUSI 2023B until the level is completed successfully. Fall, Spring, Long Summer.
Prerequisite: Completion of MUSI 2023A: Piano Proficiency Level III.
