Individual Applied Lessons Grading Policy

Final Recorded Term Grade

The final recorded term grade in applied study is the average of the instructor's Progress Grade, the Repertoire Class Grade, and the student's Jury/Recital Grade.

Progress Grade

The Progress Grade is assigned by the student's private instructor and considers consistency of effort, technical development, artistry and musicianship, overall improvement, and receptiveness to learning.

Repertoire Class Grade

Attendance and participation in Repertoire Class is required of all students (undergraduate and graduate) enrolled in applied study. The Repertoire Class Grade is assigned by the student's private instructor and is based on participation and performance in the Repertoire Class and other expectations specified by the student's private instructor. The Repertoire Class Grade is independent of the Progress Grade.

Jury/Recital Grade

The Jury/Recital Grade is the average score of all faculty/committee members present for the jury or assigned to grade the jury/recital performance.
