This class provides the TVCC music major with critical experience in listening to performance literature. Attendance at department-sponsored recitals/concerts and outside performances is required; the number may vary from semester to semester.

This course is a non-credit course. The purpose of the course is to document that a student has satisfactorily completed the requirements of the class. When transferring to a receiving institution that requires recital attendance for the baccalaureate music degree, the student can transfer semesters successfully completed at TVCC.  The course does not affect the student’s grade point average, nor does it hinder graduation from TVCC; however, it may impact completion of a baccalaureate degree if the receiving university’s music department’s requirements for the number of semesters of recital class is not completed in a timely manner.  Generally, the student is required to document four semesters of recital attendance.

All non-music majors enrolled in private lessons will be required to either perform in a student recital or for a music jury at the end of the semester. Music majors will be required to perform a solo on their major applied instrument (or voice) twice each semester and for a music jury at the end of the semester. Lab fees for applied music courses are $75 for one credit hour and $150 for two credit hours.
