Dear Students,

Welcome to MUSIC at Wayland!

We are proud of our century-long tradition of

offering exciting, quality, faith-based musical opportunities for students pursuing

music degrees as well as students enrolled in other academic disciplines…we plan to

continue this tradition and are very glad that you have joined us for the journey. As

we begin the 2015-2016 academic year, we eagerly look forward to many more great

moments of music making!

This

Handbook

will answer many questions you may have concerning music study at

Wayland. Included is a list of faculty and their contact information, degree options,

and ensembles with their directors. We have also included program and scholarship

audition policy. If you ever have additional questions not covered in the

Handbook

,

please do not hesitate to ask for assistance.

Please make note that it is your

responsibility to read the Handbook and to understand its contents, especially

the School of Music policies outlined within the document.

During your first semester at Wayland you will be assigned an advisor within the

School of Music. We encourage you to discuss your career objectives with them as

well as other faculty you meet along your journey. Some of our degrees are general in

nature (the Bachelor of Arts degree) and others are more specialized (the Bachelor of

Music degrees in Music Education and Performance). The more you study and

discuss these various degree offerings, the easier it will be to make informed choices

based on your personal career objectives.

Music degree programs at Wayland are designed to provide general studies options

appropriate for liberal arts degrees, a thorough grounding in fundamental

musicianship, and upper-level music training.

Music degrees are some of the most

demanding and time-consuming of all Wayland degrees.

They require personal

dedication and a constant commitment to excellence. To graduate in four years you

will need to carry a full load of classes and possibly complete some course work in the

summers. You should use the

Handbook

in conjunction with the

Academic Catalog

(available in the Registrar’s Office and online) to plan and carry out your academic

activities with efficiency.

Best wishes as you pursue your music education at Wayland! We are excited that you

have joined our family and we look forward to sharing many moments of beauty with

you along your journey.

WBU School of Music – Statement of Progress

School of Music courses and proficiency exams are designed to give students the tools needed to function as music professionals. Students will progress musically when they learn to apply these tools to their respective musical lives. The music faculty expects students to engage their musical training purposefully and may counsel students who make insufficient progress toward professional competency at any point during their college career.

Applied Music Curriculum

Any student may enroll for courses in applied music provided that all prerequisites are met and provided that there is faculty available. A part of private music study is attendance and performance at studio seminars scheduled by the instructor in addition to private instruction. Students must plan individual practice time in addition to private instruction sessions. Applied instruction is designed to teach techniques of performance and appropriate literature for the medium.

WBU General Statement on Musicians’ Health

The School of Music at Wayland Baptist University emphasizes musicians' health as essential to the lifelong success of its graduates. In working toward a degree in music, students at WBU are joining a profession with a long and honored history. Part of the responsibility of any musician is to remain in optimal physical condition to practice the

(19)

~ 19 ~

profession with competence well into the future. Hearing, vocal, and neuromusculoskeletal health basics should be understood by all music professionals regardless of specific performance

disciplines. As such, students in the School of Music are taught the fundamental health risks faced by all musicians while more closely examining the health issues specifically related to their

specializations.

Please review the link on the School of Music webpage

http://www.wbu.edu/academics/schools/music/musicians-health.html for specific information regarding musicians’ health.

Class Attendance

The university expects students to make class attendance a priority. Faculty members provide students a copy of attendance requirements. These are provided within one week of the beginning of the semester.

Students in programs for which an outside agency (such as the Veteran’s Administration) has stricter attendance requirements will be subject to those requirements. The university registrar will provide faculty a list of these students and the agency’s requirements. In addition, the university registrar will provide each student affected a list of these regulations. The academic dean must approve part-time and adjunct faculty class attendance requirements prior to syllabi distribution.

There are no excused absences. When a music student travels with a Wayland performing group, it is the responsibility of the student to work with their professors in all courses IN ADVANCE of the absence to assure that work is complete. Since it is certain that music students will miss class due to performance obligations, it is extremely important that

students are in class all other class meetings to assure continued positive relations with their faculty. This policy applies to classes both in and outside the School of Music.

Music students enrolled in a night class should not miss the class in order to attend music concert events unless they are performing themselves. If music students must miss a night class to perform in a concert, it is imperative that they discuss their absence in detail with their professor. If a night class interferes with a student’s successful completion of MUSI 0001 Recital Hour, it is up to the student to complete the required number of extra credit options to pass the course. Music students should carefully examine the consequences surrounding attendance before in enrolling in a night class.

Honesty

STATEMENT ON PLAGIARISM & ACADEMIC DISHONESTY:

Wayland Baptist University observes a zero tolerance policy regarding academic dishonesty. Per university policy as described in the academic catalog, all cases of academic dishonesty will be reported and second offenses will result in suspension from the university.

(20)

~ 20 ~

Students shall have protection through orderly procedures against prejudices or capricious academic evaluation. A student who believes that he or she has not been held to realistic academic standards, just evaluation procedures, or appropriate grading, may appeal the final grade given in the course by using the student grade appeal process described in the Academic Catalog. Appeals may not be made for advanced placement examinations or course bypass examinations. Appeals are limited to the final course grade, which may be upheld, raised, or lowered at any stage of the appeal process. Any recommendation to lower a course grade must be submitted through the Executive Vice

President/Provost to the Faculty Assembly Grade Appeals Committee for review and approval. The Faculty Assembly Grade Appeals Committee may instruct that the course grade be upheld, raised, or lowered to a more proper evaluation.

Remain outside the doors until the music is complete.

Use of the School of Music’s Steinway Pianos

The School of Music is very fortunate to have two new Steinway Model D concert grand pianos. A seven-foot Steinway grand with a walnut finish also resides in the Miller Recital Hall. These grand pianos are reserved specifically for concert and recital use; a Baldwin nine-foot grand is also used for chapel services and other events outside the School of Music. These pianos are kept covered and locked at all times in order to maintain their best performance quality. The Steinway grand pianos are stored in Miller Recital Hall to ensure proper climate control and to be available for individual practice and ensemble rehearsals. The thermostat in Miller Recital Hall is NOT to be modified at any time; it is set at a precise range so that the pianos are not adversely affected by excessive cold or heat.

We also have a new Steinway Model 1098 upright in a locked upstairs practice room. This

instrument is now the primary practice instrument for piano majors and minors. Piano majors and minors who are enrolled in applied piano should contact Dr. Fountain to obtain a key for the room. There is no sign-up sheet for this room; however, please be considerate of your colleagues and do not use this room for more than two hours at a time. Building hours are 7:30am-11pm Monday-Friday, weekend hours per arrangement with faculty.

Students are not permitted to share keys; each student wishing to practice on the upstairs Steinway must request a key for his or her personal use. All keys must be returned at the end of each semester. Any student not returning his or her key at the end of the semester will have a hold placed on his or her student account until the key is returned.

Piano majors and minors will also be provided keys for the two Model D pianos in the Recital Hall. The upstairs Steinway upright is a very fine instrument with a professional-quality action; it will serve your practice needs admirably. However, piano majors and minors may use a Model D in the Recital Hall when the room is available during normal business hours. Students will NOT share these keys with anyone, nor will they use the keys to allow any unauthorized individual to play on these instruments. Violation of this policy may result in loss of key privileges for the student.

The keyboard faculty requires the completion of a form requesting use of the grand pianos at least one week in advance of any event not under the supervision of the School of Music. Students who work with other organizations, both on- and off-campus, need to be aware of this requirement. You should not promise the use of a concert grand piano to anyone without requesting advance written permission through the Music Office.

To request use of a concert grand piano, please contact Dr. Richard Fountain, Associate Professor of Collaborative Piano, at (806) 291-1068 or fountainr@wbu.edu.
