Any student at Plymouth State University may consider the Music minor program offered in the Department of Music, Theatre and Dance. To be accepted as a Music minor, you must meet with the Department Chair as well as audition on your preferred instrument or voice for members of the faculty. You will work with an appropriate performance study faculty member to choose your audition material.
Music minors are required to attend 50 percent of the Wednesday afternoon recitals (including Convocation) and at least six other department-sponsored concerts.
Juries are performed at the end of each semester. A Music minor must study no less than five semesters in one performance area as well as at least two semesters at the 2000 level. Each individual faculty member sets jury requirements for his/her students. Be sure you have these requirements at the beginning of each semester
Music minors are encouraged to perform in a Student Recital once each year. Students should request specific information from their Performance Studies teacher.
