**Students will need to discuss the placement of the Teaching Methods Electives with the piano faculty to determine when courses will be offered for all piano majors. Extra time should be allowed for preparation of recitals (particularly the Senior Recital and accompanying paper).

Reminder: In order to graduate, students must complete 40 hours of upper-division course work (300 or higher). Music courses comprise 38 of these hours; therefore students must complete at least 2 hours of upper division courses in their electives.
