The purpose of the music program is threefold:
- To provide opportunities
for all students to study music as an essential part of a
liberal arts education.
- To provide majors in music with the opportunity
to develop basic musicianship and performance skills appropriate
to the various emphases in the degree.
- To recognize
the interrelationship between music and the other creative arts.
SPU is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
The SPU Music Therapy program is an integrative, multidisciplinary curriculum. Music therapy students are required to:
- Fulfill the requirements of a music degree as accomplished musicians.
- Take classes in psychology, special education, and biology/physical education.
- Fulfill practicum hours for clinical experience.
Students majoring in music have the advantage of a strong music
major within a liberal arts setting.
- Through academic and modeled clinical practice, students with an emphasis in music therapy will be trained and eligible to enter a nationally approved internship site, sit for the national board certification exam, and begin a career as a board certified music therapist.
- Students with an emphasis in
music education are prepared to teach music in secondary schools.
- Other emphases in music train people to use
their gifts as performers, as composers, as studio technicians, as
private studio teachers, and for advanced study in performance,
theory, and literature.
Music Ensemble Opportunities
Many music ensembles are available to SPU students. In the course
listings, ensembles are in the 2000/4000 series and course descriptions
and requirements may be found there. All ensemble courses
carry regular University credit and most require an audition or
permission of the instructor for enrollment.
GPA Admission Requirement
A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for admission to the music major.
A student must complete the major requirements in effect when the student is admitted to the major.
Piano proficiency is required by the junior year. Students who are enrolled
in Musicianship I or II and who are identified as needing remedial keyboard
skills may be required to enroll in MUS 1255 until the keyboard proficiency
exam (required of all majors) is passed.
