Regular attendance is necessary for satisfactory achievement. Therefore, attendance is required at all lessons (whether in person or online) and the final jury. The student is allowed one unexcused absence throughout the semester with no penalty. Each unexcused absence after the first will result in an automatic F grade for the lesson. Three unexcused absences will result in an automatic failure of the class. An unexcused absence for the final jury will result in failure of the class.
If the student encounters a scheduling conflict with weekly scheduled lessons, the student must contact the instructor prior to the scheduled lesson time to request a rescheduled lesson for that week, at the instructor's discretion.
In the face of extenuating circumstances, the instructor will be as flexible as possible to set up a makeup lesson, at the instructor's discretion.
Week 1: Determine weekly lesson time. Meet for first weekly lesson.
Weeks 2-16: Weekly lessons.
Final: Departmental jury.
Pointers for flute practice:
From the AC Music Major Handbook, regarding practice rooms:
Practice rooms will each be assigned for specific music-major use to limit the number of potential interactions in each space, with students scheduling time in their assigned practice room to allow time for proper sanitization between sessions. Students will be required to use “gym etiquette”: students clean their instruments and equipment (i.e. keyboards, music stands, chairs, etc.) in their rooms at the beginning and end of each practice session. Anyone not following these rules will be subject to loss of their practice room privileges.
Piano keyboards will be checked out to any student who does not have regular access to their own. Instructors will provide information on the schedule for when students must have their keyboard with them in class.
Classrooms, studios, and practice rooms in the Music Building have been outfitted with HEPA/UVC air filters and air sanitizers. These were purchased from music supplies and donation support, so please leave them in their assigned spaces. Practice-room units will run continuously.
