Core Courses

The Music Core Course comprises a number of interrelated subjects which work most successfully when taken together in sequence and in the appropriate year.

Students are automatically registered for required Core Courses: Ear Training, Harmony & Counterpoint, Time & Rhythm, and Music History. If a student withdraws from or fails a course the Registrar's Office ensures that this student is re-registered the following year. The Registrar's Office will also remove students from classes for which they may have registered without the necessary prerequisite(s).
