MUS 401 - Music Capstone Spring Semester

2 credits


 

The capstone for the music major is a two-semester sequence in which students bring together the creative, performance, historical and theoretical components of the major and place them in the wider context of the liberal arts. In the Fall semester, students meet as a group or individually with the Capstone instructor once per week. They attend designated concerts in the Concert Hall and participate in at least one field trip, selected with student input. Coursework consists of an online portfolio of their best work in the four components of the major, reflective written assignments, and class discussions about shared concert attendance. Students also develop and submit a formal proposal for their Capstone Project, which will be presented as part of the joint Music Capstone Festival in the spring. In the Spring semester, students prepare their Capstone Project, which will be individually designed but will meet specified goals in performance (creative, musical, verbal), writing/research, and creative work. Students will continue to attend designated concerts in the Concert Hall, to engage in departmental assessment, and to meet as a group to discuss shared concert attendance and progress on their Capstone Projects. Spring semester only. CLA-Capstone
