Music Theory and Ear Training Placement Exam
September 20, 2010; 2-4pm; Fine Arts Building: Digital Music Lab
A Placement Exam is available for all students who would like to place out of the Introduction to Music Theory (Core), first or second year Music Theory or Ear Training courses. The exam is available to students that are String Performance and Interdisciplinary Arts – Music Emphasis majors and music minors. Students will be tested separately from aural skills as well as part-writing, harmonic and twentieth century analysis.
In addition, students should know the following to prepare for the Placement Exam:
Preparation: Students will find it useful to review undergraduate theory as presented by Kostka-Payne in Tonal Harmony (Knopf) and the following book on Twentieth-century music: Stefan Kostka, Materials and Techniques of Twentieth Century Music (Prentice Hall). Rhythm Exercises by William Starr and Sightsinging for Musicians by Ottman are good texts to use as preparation for the Ear Training portion.
Depending on the outcome of the exam, students will either place out of all of the Music Theory/Ear Training courses, or be assigned to a particular course based on the professor’s recommendation. Students who have taken Music Theory/Ear Training courses at another institution must take the exam before any transfer credit is accepted. All decisions regarding the grading of the exam and the placement of the student in the course are final.
For any questions, please contact the Music Division at email@example.com
