MUSIC 254A Woodwind Techniques II: Flute (.5)
This course is intended for music majors working toward the Teacher Education Degree Program in Music. This course may serve as a music education elective, and is best taken during the junior year. It should only be taken following successful completion of MUSIC 154 Woodwind Techniques I. The purpose of the course is to allow students to develop proper performance techniques in order to produce a characteristic sound on the flute at a sufficient level so that they can provide a desirable aural model for beginning and intermediate string students. Grades will be based largely on the performance achievement on the flute, in addition to development of resources for flute pedagogy and demonstration of appropriate diagnosis and prescription for flute performance problems. There will be two performance assessments during the course. There will be one midterm and one final assessment, weighted as listed:
Midterm Assessment (performance and diagnosis) 30%
Final Assessment (performance and diagnosis) 50%
Resource journal 10%
The required repertoire list will be provided approximately two weeks prior to each assessment. Students will also be provided with a copy of the measurement tool to be used in evaluating their performance. Students must receive a passing grade for both assessments 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.
