Credit for Performance
Students in the classes of 2012 and 2013 may bundle performance credits into one and only one three-credit course in one of two ways:
- Students may receive three credits equivalent to a full course after taking three semesters of individual hour lessons for credit in voice or on the same instrument, MU 099 Vocal/Instrumental Instruction, and, at the end of their third semester of instruction, performing before a jury of the performance faculty. Evaluations will be submitted to the Chairperson of the Department for approval. Information on individual lessons.
- Students may receive three credits equivalent to a full course who have taken three semesters of one of the following: Introduction to Vocal Performance, Gospel Workshop, Improvisation, or the Traditional Irish Music Ensembles and who, at sometime during their four years at Boston College, have taken MU 070 Fundamentals of Music, for Introduction to Vocal Performance and Improvisation, MU 330 Introduction to Irish Traditional Music or MU 331 Introduction to Celtic Musics, for the Irish Traditional Music Ensembles, and MU 321 Rhythm and Blues in America or MU 322 Jazz in America, for Gospel Workshop. Individual Instrumental Instruction, either credit or non-credit, and Voice for Performance both require an extra fee. In addition, several free, non-credit performance courses offer instruction and/or coaching in various instruments and ensembles.
