HASTINGS COLLEGE MISSION STATEMENT The historic and sustaining philosophy of Hastings College incorporates dedication to the highest standards of academic endeavor within the broad perspective of the liberal arts and the Christian Faith. Committed to this philosophy, the College strives to provide an environment which challenges students to: 1. 2. 3. 4. Develop intellectual, critical, creative, and communicative skills that provide the basis for learning, personal growth, and expression. Acquire a knowledge and understanding of the history and the cultural achievements of humanity, as well as a sense of values reflected in a responsible commitment to God and society. Respect and appreciate the achievements and identity of each human being. Prepare for a life of creativity, curiosity, and change.

MISSION PHILOSOPHY/OBJECTIVES DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT STRIVES: To instill in all students involved in the Music Department a respect and love for music. To broaden student's musical horizons by introducing them to new and diverse realms of music. To teach students the discipline required to achieve excellence in this field, both as teachers and performers. To instill a positive attitude towards sharing their talents with others through performance. To inspire students to be creative, and to express their creativity through teaching and performing. To emphasize that hearing music performed, especially in live performance, is an integral part of a musician's growth. To teach students that music is an expression of their own God-like nature, and that through music they can reach others, thus enriching their own lives. The music faculty hopes to inspire, by example and in practice, the highest standards of musical expertise, and to help each student grow as a human being through music.

SECTION I THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT The Hastings College Music Department has long been noted for its tradition of excellence in all areas of music. The Department's expressed purpose is to provide a unique musical education that will help the music student prepare for a variety of professional careers in the field of music. The Music Department is fully accredited by all teacher education agencies and is a member of the National Association of Schools of Music. The Music Department is located in the Hayes M. Fuhr Hall of Music, a facility erected in 1956 and totally renovated in 1990 specifically for music. The Hayes M. Fuhr Hall of Music features rehearsal halls that conveniently accommodate the performing ensembles, a recital hall seating 240 persons, 18 practice rooms, abundant classroom space, spacious individual studios for professors, and a lounge. The Music Library is an excellent facility containing over 8,100 scores and over 3,500 recordings. The library also receives many periodicals. In addition, the unique Rinderspacher collection of almost 1,700 scores, books, and instruments is a major resource available to other institutions. The Music Library also contains several modernly equipped stations for individual listening. While the more frequently used reference materials are kept in the Music Library, the bulk of the college's holding of, specialized and reference books in the field of music are housed in the main Library (Perkins Library). This Library has excellent holdings, and also contains further periodicals and recordings. The Music Department is well equipped with Steinway pianos, two harpsichords, and two pipe organs for study, practice and performance. Beginning piano students receive instruction on a Yamaha Clavinova Piano Laboratory fully integrated with new PC's equipped for composition, ear-training, marching band show charting, and arranging. The performing ensembles have the finest equipment available for their use. In 2005, Hastings College was named an "All Steinway School"-one of only 87 in the world. PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES Hastings College Students have ample performance opportunities through a variety of experiences. Music majors and non-majors share equally in these opportunities. Auditions for all ensembles occur at the beginning of each semester unless otherwise noted. They are listed as follows: HASTINGS COLLEGE CHOIR: This ensemble is open to all Hastings College students. Auditions are held in the fall of each year for the voice ensemble. The College Choir is the touring ensemble, presenting concerts in Nebraska communities, through the Mid-West, Mexico, and Europe. The literature covers the broad spectrum of the vast repertoire of choral music. HASTINGS COLLEGE SINGERS: The Singers is a medium size choral ensemble, which performs traditional repertoire suited to the composition of the group. Membership, open campus-wide, is by audition.

The Marching Band appears at all home football games and the homecoming "Melody Round-Up" parade. THE CONCERT BAND: The Concert Band is comprised of students selected from the Marching Band. An audition is held for the purpose of chair placement. The group performs a broad repertoire of literature including marches, traditional, and contemporary works for the concert band. PARTICIPATION: Marching and Concert Band are required of all Music Education and Performance Majors with a wind and percussion background. Students must participate in both the Marching Band and Concert Band to receive credit. *THE WIND ENSEMBLE: The wind ensemble is a select group of the most outstanding wind and percussion students at Hastings College. Using the player pool concept, the ensemble performs a wide variety of wind literature ranging from works requiring as few as 8 players to as many as 36. Auditions take place at the conclusion of the marching season. *THE JAZZ BAND: This ensemble is open to all Hastings College students. Auditions are held the first week of each semester. Improvisation and sight-reading are stressed for all members. The literature covers a wide area from the big bands to the contemporary music of today.

ADMISSION PROCEDURES: Prospective Hastings College students must make application to the Admissions Department of Hastings College. Prior to acceptance as a Music Major and in accordance with the standards of the National Association of Schools of Music, students must audition for admission to the Music Department. AUDITIONS FOR ADMISSION AND SCHOLARSHIPS: In order that the Music Department may guide and counsel students more effectively, it is necessary for all students applying for admission to the Music Department to perform and audition before representatives of the faculty. Each student will be encouraged to play or sing two pieces of contrasting style and period by well-known composers (Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern). Memorization is not required but is encouraged. Accompanists will be provided if requested on the audition form. Auditionees should send accompaniment music to the Music Department one week before a scheduled audition. A student wishing to audition on more than one instrument or instrument and voice, need perform only one piece on the secondary instrument. A single audition will qualify for admission and for the scholarship audition. A student living within a distance of 200 miles from Hastings is encouraged to drive to the Hastings College campus for the audition. However, in the event that such a visit is not possible, a student may submit a video and/or audio recording. This recording should be made on a good quality tape or disc, and should be labeled with name and address as well as title and composer of the piece recorded. SCHOLARSHIPS: Music scholarships are available for Music Majors and non-majors. Prospective students should contact the Admissions Office/Admissions Counselor and/or the Music Department to arrange for a scholarship audition. If necessary, the appropriate forms will be mailed upon request, and should be completed and promptly returned so the audition can be arranged. Music Scholarships are awarded on a one-year basis and renewed each year if the recipient's academic standing (grade point average of 2.0 or better) and musical achievement are satisfactory based upon the evaluation of the major ensemble director. Academic Scholarships are granted by the College on the basis of the student's high school record or ACT/SAT score. (Students should make application to the Admissions Office for this assistance.) Freshman students who are in the top percentage of their graduating class may be eligible to receive an academic scholarship. Academic Scholarships are awarded for a one-year period and are renewable by maintaining the required grade point average. PLACEMENT EXAMS: A Basic Musicianship entrance exam will be given for the purpose of placement. Study materials will be mailed to incoming Music Majors and transfer students during the summer. The exam will be scheduled for the first day of classes. A Piano Assessment exam may be given for the purpose of placement. TRANSFER STUDENTS: Transfer students should have the Music Department and the Registrar's Office review credits earned at the previous institution. Such a review will avoid misunderstandings that could arise at the time of registration. Transfer students will be required to perform the equivalent of a sophomore assessment unless excused by the chair.

CENTRAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE STUDENTS IN ENSEMBLES: Students from Central Community College are welcomed in Hastings College music ensembles, however, these students are required to enroll as non-degree seeking students, register for (0 credit) for the appropriate ensemble, and pay the appropriate audit fee. The Department of Music will not utilize college funds for CCC students for touring. Adult community members are welcomed to participate in major ensembles without such audit. (Fall 2005). JOB OPPORTUNITIES: Students seeking work on campus should make application through the Admissions Office. These requests will be channeled to the Financial Aid Office for evaluation and assignment. Many campus work opportunities are available with some jobs in the Music Department. However, only a limited number of students can be assigned in the Music Department.

Music students also have the opportunity to teach through the College Methods program. These teaching assignments are made in woodwinds, brass, percussion, strings, piano, and voice. The students are grade school, junior high, and high school musicians. These assignments are usually reserved for upper-class music majors but a limited number of freshman and non-majors are allowed to teach. H.C. students who use college facilities must have the permission of their studio teacher and the Chair of the Department. Application must be made in writing to the Chair of the Department each semester.

Details regarding work-study may be found on page 52-53 of the Music Department Handbook.

SECTION III RULES AND REGULATIONS AS APPLIED TO PROGRAMS OF STUDY MINIMUM GRADE REQUIREMENTS: A minimum grade of C- is required in each music course required in the Bachelor of Music Degree or Bachelor of Arts in Music Degree. (rev. 1994-95) ENSEMBLES AND PARTICIPATION: Ensemble participation is required of all music majors. Participation is required during the first semester, interim, and second semester. Keyboard Performance or Pedagogy Majors will be allowed to select from band, choir, bell choir, or orchestra to fulfill the major ensemble requirement. All Music Education Majors (Field Endorsement) are encouraged to be members of Band and/or Orchestra, Bell Choir, and Choir their freshman and sophomore years. Juniors and seniors may select either Band and/or Orchestra, Bell Choir, and/or Choir. Instrumental or vocal majors must participate in their respective ensembles for 8 consecutive semesters. Membership in other ensembles will be selected by audition, from the membership of the Band, Bell Choir, Choir or Orchestra. Students who are not enrolled at Hastings College may not participate in music department ensembles or ensemble activities. Students enrolled at Central Community College interested in participating in Hastings College music ensembles must also enroll at Hastings College and register for their appropriate ensemble for audit. (see section II, page 9). APPLIED LESSONS: All music majors study in weekly private lessons in keeping with the suggested course sequencing. All applied students must practice at least 45 minutes per day for each half hour lesson. Studio assignments are made by the Chair of the Department based on faculty availability and load. Priority will be given to students in music

degree programs. Non-music majors, music majors who study beyond degree requirements, students who have unpaid accounts in the Business Office or Music Library, or have existing medical concerns are not guaranteed studio space. (Revised June 2005). Non-music majors are allowed only to register for non-major lesson (est. Spring 2007). RECITALS: Depending on their degree requirements, music majors are required to give half or full recitals. A half recital is 20 minutes of music for a Bachelor of Arts in Music or Music Education Major and 30 minutes for a performance Major. A full recital is the equivalent of 45 minutes. The requirements are as follows: Bachelor of Music (General, Choral, Winds or Strings in Music Education) A half recital in the junior year is required. Bachelor of Arts in Music (option 1 only) A half recital is required. Bachelor of Music (Applied major in Wind, Voice, Piano, Organ, *Piano Pedagogy, *Collaborative Piano, or Stringed Instruments) A half recital in the junior year and a full recital in the senior year is required. *Requires additional recital (lecture and/or collaborative experience). NON-DEGREE RECITALS: Students interested in performing non-degree recitals must have the approval of their studio teacher and the department chair. Specific policies for non-degree recitals are available in the office or from the studio teacher. Non-degree recitals will be scheduled following passage of the jury. Accompanists are not provided by the Music Department for non-degree recitals. (Revised 2003). RECITAL JURIES: Students giving degree recitals are required to hold a recital jury 3 weeks/21 calendar days in advance of the arranged recital date. The purpose of the jury is to determine whether the preparation is adequate to present a recital. The student will select a panel of 3 persons (not to include the department chair or studio teacher) to audit the jury. A majority vote determines the status of the recital. All literature will be performed. At this time the student's program and program notes are due (typed on provided computer disc and approved by studio teacher) and submitted to the Music office. Any student recital that is canceled or postponed will be rescheduled in the following semester. The rescheduled recital will be juried by the same committee (Rev. 2002). NO LATER THAN ONE WEEK AFTER PASSING THE JURY, REVISED PROGRAM NOTES (APPROVED BY STUDIO TEACHER) ARE TO BE RECEIVED IN THE MUSIC OFFICE. PROGRAM NOTES ARE TO FOLLOW THE FORM SET FORTH IN Writing about Music-A Style Sheet by D. Kern Holoman (2nd Edition; University of California Press; 2008). STUDENTS WHO DO NOT COMPLY WITH THIS POLICY MAY FORFEIT THEIR RECITAL PERFORMANCEOPPORTUNITY (EST. SUMMER 2008). SOPHOMORE ASSESSMENT: Near the conclusion of each spring term, all sophomores in the Bachelor of Arts in Music or Bachelor of Music degree programs will be required to perform a Sophomore Assessment. The purpose of this assessment is for the music faculty to measure the student's strengths, weakness, and progress in the music program and to make recommendations regarding the student's status in the degree program. Additionally, sophomores will be required to do an end-of-the-year jury specific to studio study. Each area will determine specific requirements for the end-of-the-year juries. Transfer students will be required to perform the equivalent of a sophomore assessment unless excused by the chair. (revised April 1998) RECITAL ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS: The music faculty feel that attendance at recitals and concerts is important for all music majors and, therefore, the following policy will be in effect: A list of approved recitals and concerts will be posted the first week of classes and will be revised as necessary. Students are required to attend 10 of the posted recitals and concerts per semester. Students attending less than 10 recitals or concerts in a semester will have their applied studio grade lowered. (see chart) A PERFORMANCE IN WHICH A STUDENT PARTICIPATES WILL NOT COUNT TOWARD THE TOTAL NEEDED TO MEET THE REQUIREMENT. Students who are student teaching are exempted from this policy. .

Performance Requirements Repertoire Class: Attendance at this class is mandatory. Performance requirement at this is at the discretion of the instructor. Music Hour: All voice majors in applied lessons shall perform one time per semester on music hour. Recital: The Bachelor of Music in Voice shall perform one half recital (30 minutes) their junior year and a full recital (45 minutes) their senior year. The Music Education/Choral Emphasis or Music Education/General will perform one half recital (20 minutes) either their junior or senior year. Recital Jury: Students giving degree recitals are required to hold a recital jury 3 weeks/21 calendar days in advance of the arranged recital date. The purpose of the jury is to determine whether the preparation is adequate to present a recital. The student will select a panel of 3 persons (not to include the studio teacher) to audit the jury. A majority vote determines the status of the recital. All literature will be performed. At this time the student's program and program notes are due (typed on provided computer disc and approved by studio teacher) and submitted to the Music office. Any student recital that is canceled or postponed will be rescheduled in the following semester. The rescheduled recital jury will be heard by the same committee. The other two-thirds of the grade will be determined by the studio teacher. (revised 2002) Semester Jury: All music majors (BA (voice), BM in Voice, or BM in Choral Education) taking applied lessons will prepare for an examination by a final jury to be composed of the voice faculty. This jury will be graded by each faculty member present and the average will constitute one-third of the final semester grade. The other two-thirds of the grade are determined by the studio teacher. All performed music must be memorized. Students performing a degree recital may (with permission of the Coordinator of the Voice area and their studio instructor) be exempted from performing a final jury during only the semester of the scheduled recital.

*The student will choose one piece for performance, the faculty will select/call for the remainder of the pieces to be performed. SOPHOMORE ASSESSMENT: Near the conclusion of each spring term, all sophomores in the Bachelor of Arts in Music or Bachelor of Music degree programs will be required to perform a Sophomore Assessment. The purpose of this assessment is for the music faculty to measure the students strengths, weakness, and progress in the music program and to make recommendations regarding the students status in the degree program. Additionally, sophomores will be required to do an end-of-the-year jury specific to studio study. Each area will determine specific requirements for the end-of-the-year juries. Transfer students will be required to perform the equivalent of a sophomore assessment unless excused by the chair. (revised April 1998)

26

INSTRUMENTAL REPERTOIRE AND PERFORMANCE GUIDELINES Scale Assessment Policy All music majors in the Bachelor of Music or Bachelor of Arts in Music degrees who are studying a wind, string, or percussion instrument as their primary or secondary instrument are required to pass a major and minor scale assessment. Scale requirements for students pursuing the Minor in Music are established by the student's Applied Music instructor. In addition to scales on mallet instruments, percussions are required to memorize and perform in successive order the 40 Snare Drum Rudiments as sanctioned by the Percussive Arts Society.) Students must take the assessment each semester beginning with the semester they are enrolled in 211 level lessons until they successfully pass (see below). Failure to pass the assessment will affect the student's studio grade in a manner stated by each studio teacher in their applied studio/lesson syllabus. Students may opt to take the assessment during the first year of lessons, with no adverse effect upon their studio grade if they fail. This assessment does not replace scale requirements for each studio teacher, instrumental juries, or sophomore assessments. The following requirements must be successfully passed to complete the instrumental scale assessment: Perform 12 major and 12 harmonic minor scales, in a chromatic sequence (C, C#, D, etc.) Scales performed at a minimum tempo of quarter note = 80, in eighth notes.
