**Students should attempt to take the Applied Instrumental Methods Elective prior to beginning secondary lessons. Extra time should be allowed for preparation of recitals (particularly the Senior Recital and accompanying paper). Free electives may be used to allow for primary lessons in every semester or to allow for additional secondary or piano lessons.

Reminder: In order to graduate, students must complete 40 hours of upper-division course work (300 or higher). Music courses comprise 34 of these hours; therefore students must complete at least 6 hours of upper division courses in their electives.
