Cadek Department of Music
Associate Professor Lee Harris, Head
The Cadek Department of Music serves the entire University community by offering General Education Fine Arts elective courses, a course in Non-Western Cultures and Civilizations, opportunities for group musical performance, individual lessons, and beginning classes in piano, voice and guitar, as well as majors and minors in Music.
The requirements for entrance to and graduation from the Cadek Department of Music are in accordance with the published regulations of the National Association of Schools of Music and the Tennessee regulations for certification of teachers.
The Cadek Department of Music offers the following degree programs at the undergraduate level: Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) with a major in Music, the Bachelor of Music (B.M.), and the Bachelor of Music (B.M.) in Music Education. The B.M. degree provides three concentrations: instrumental performance, vocal performance, and theory or composition. The B.M. in Music Education provides two different concentrations: instrumental and vocal.
The B.A. degree is offered for students who desire a strong liberal arts background with a major in music. Approximately one third of the four-year B.A. program is in music, and numerous elective hours outside the department permit study in other academic areas.
The B.M. degree is a more concentrated course of study in the major area. Approximately two thirds of the four-year program is in music. The B.M. degree in music education is appropriate for students who plan to teach music in elementary, middle, or high schools. It combines general education with music content and teaching methodology in a highly structured course of study. Students who successfully complete the program are awarded teaching certification upon graduation. All music degree programs represent appropriate preparation for graduate study.
Admission to the Music Program
Freshmen, transfer, and current UTC students intending to change their major to Music must first enroll as Pre-Music majors. They must perform a live audition on their primary applied instrument or voice, and complete either a Music Theory Diagnostic or Proficiency Examination in order to eligible for admission into the Bachelor of Arts degree program in Music or a Bachelor of Music degree program.
The music audition determines both the student’s readiness for college-level applied music instruction and potential for a career in music. Entering students will perform their audition on the spring audition dates or on the Friday before classes begin each semester. Current UTC students may audition on semester-end performance juries. The Music Theory Diagnostic Exam is a placement test indicating whether the student is prepared for college-level music theory. This exam is administered on spring audition dates, at summer Orientation sessions and on the Friday before classes begin in the fall semester. Students transferring to UTC as juniors must take the Sophomore Theory Proficiency Examination and audition for upper-level applied study (300-level or 400-level).
The Music Department will notify students of the results of the audition and diagnostic exam. Students who are successful in both areas will be admitted as music majors and the Records Office will be officially notified. Students who meet with partial success must remain Pre-Music majors. Deficiencies in applied performance must be addressed through appropriate applied study at the 100- or 200-level. They must later re-audition for admission to the major. Any student who does not achieve the required minimum score on the Theory Diagnostic Exam must complete a music fundamentals course with a grade of C or better before they will be admitted as a music major. Students whose performance on the audition and the diagnostic exam indicates no real potential for success in the major will counseled to seek another major.
All music majors are required to participate in an ensemble appropriate to the concentration during each semester of residence, for a minimum of eight credit hours (seven for music education majors). For all music majors, a 2.0 minimum grade point average in all music courses is required. For licensure in music education, a 2.5 cumulative average is required with no grade lower than a C; see Music Education (B.M). A senior recital or other senior educational experience is required of all majors as specified for the music degree program. See the Music Student Handbook for more information on this and other additional requirements of the Music Department.
On the following pages, suggested courses of study are offered for the various music degree programs. Most courses are listed only by course number or referred to generically as Ensemble and Applied Music study. More specific degree plans, broken down by semester, are printed in the Music Student Handbook.
An ensemble is defined as any group of two or more performers. Large ensembles include Chamber Singers, Chattanooga Singers, Choral Union, Concert Band, Marching Band, Master Chorale, University Orchestra, and Opera Workshop. Any other ensemble, including a soloist with accompanist, is considered a small ensemble.
