Piano Proficiency Requirements

Basic piano proficiency skills are required of all Music and Music and Worship Arts majors for graduation. Students can prepare for this requirement by enrolling and receiving a grade of “C” or better in Class Piano each semester in residence until the student has passed a piano proficiency examination. Students who have not demonstrated proficiency are required to enroll in Class Piano until proficiency is achieved. Students are required to pass the piano proficiency exam by their senior year in order to graduate. The sections of the piano proficiency exam may be taken at one time or in sections. Information regarding the examination is available from the Department of Music or Proficiency Coordinator. Music majors with a piano performance medium must pass a proficiency examination in functional skills prior to registering for upper division Applied Piano. Upper division transfer students with a piano performance medium must pass the examination by the end of their second semester in residence.
