MUSIC 153 String Techniques I (1)
(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.
This course is required for students working toward entrance to the Bachelor of Music Education degree program. The purpose of the course is to allow students to develop proper performance techniques on two of the four orchestral bowed stringed instruments (violin, viola, cello, and double bass) at a sufficient level so that they can provide a desirable aural model for beginning and intermediate string students. Grades will be based on students' musical achievement on the instruments. There will be two performance assessments (one midterm and one final) for each instrument during the course. Required repertoire lists and evaluation tools will be provided prior to all assessments. Students must receive a passing grade for both instruments in order to receive an overall passing grade for the course.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
