Course Revision #1

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

MUS 1046. Class Voice (ART/P; 1 cr [max 2 cr]; special fee required)

Learn basic vocal technique, how to learn a song, principles of diction, basic musicianship, and sing prepared pieces in class. Prepares students for private study in voice and there will be an opportunity to audition into private voice study. Required for all first-semester voice students.

 

Rationale (see instructions):

While the course itself seemed satisfactory, students avoided taking it, and consequently did not end up taking Individual Performance Studies: Voice. The music faculty are in agreement that students would be better served by starting out with Individual Performance Studies: Voice (Mus 1204) for their entry into the study of singing.

 

Course Revision #2

MUS 1300. Concert Band UMM Symphonic Winds (ART/P; 1 cr [max 8 cr])

Rehearsals and concerts cover standard and contemporary band wind ensemble literature with emphasis on concert performance. Several concerts annually in addition to spring concert tour.

 

Rationale (see instructions):

1) The current term “Concert Band” had been coined during the 1950s in order to designate a specific instrumentation of 80-120 musicians. The ensemble at UMM has never and will most likely not reach those numbers.  2) The repertoire performed by the UMM Wind Groups consists of mostly original works for the contemporary “Symphonic Wind Ensemble.” Consequently, the suggested name change reflects that ensemble’s size as well as performed musical literature.
