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 pub
lished 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 in Music Education. The B.M. degree provides four concentrations: instrumental performance, vocal performance, sacred music, and theory or composition. The B.M. in Music Education provides two 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 considerable 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 especially 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.
Requirements. In addition to University admission standards, prospective music majors must perform an audition in their primary performing area, which will determine the appropriate level of study. First-time students and transfer students must also take a Music Theory Diagnostic exam, which is administered on audition days and during orientation sessions. 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 educational experience is required of all majors. 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 Marching Band, Concert Band, University Orchestra, Chattanooga Singers, Chamber Singers, and Opera Workshop. Any other ensemble, including a soloist with accompanist, is considered a small ensemble.
"Applied Music" and "Applied Study" refer to individual lessons in voice or an instrument. An audition is required before registering for any level of applied music study. For information on scheduling an audition, please contact the Music Office at (423) 425-4601. Applied study at the 100-level is appropriate for non-majors and for those who wish to major in music but need remedial study. 100-level applied music may be taken for 1 or 2 credit hours as instructors are available. For 1 credit hour, the
