For students studying an instrument or voice:
For students studying composition:
The student will receive one-half hour of private instruction per week for 11 weeks and 6 hours per semester of studio pod (group) instruction.
Grades will be allotted by the instructor on the basis of weekly progress in the various aspects of the course, and on performance level exhibited over the course of the semester. The instructor and student will discuss the student’s progress and performance level at regular intervals (minimum three times) during the semester, so that the student is aware of his/her current standing and what is expected. No single evaluation will be worth more than 40% of the final grade (please see Douglas College’s evaluation policy). The following is a sample grade breakdown:
25% Technical progress
25% Musicianship progress
30% Technical and musical performance level
20% Attitude and effort
Up to 10% of the total mark will be deducted for unfulfilled participation. The following explains the grading calculation:
The successful performance student will be able to interpret and perform repertoire of an appropriate level, and demonstrate technical requirements as outlined in the Course Content.
The successful composition student will be able to demonstrate compositional skills as outlined in the Course Content.
The instructor will recommend suitable materials.
