Return to Conservatory of Music Return to: Conservatory of Music

Committee Examinations


The examining committee for the First and Second Major Committee Examinations is comprised of the conductors of the large instrumental ensembles and the percussion teacher.

Senior Recital


In conjunction with the Senior Recital, majors will present a lecture-demonstration dealing with various aspects of the performance problems relative to the works on the Senior Recital.

Music Theory and Aural Skills Requirement


Students are expected to register for Music Theory and Aural Skills courses each semester until they have completed the requirements. Part or all of these requirements may be waived by placement examination when the student enters Oberlin.

Music Theory I-IV and Aural Skills I-IV must be taken concurrently, e.g., a student will register for Music Theory I (MUTH 130 or 131) and Aural Skills I in the same semester. Under certain circumstances, with the permission of the appropriate division director and the Music Theory division director, students will be allowed to take Aural Skills IV and Music Theory IV separately. A student’s aural skills requirement must be completed before the senior recital can be scheduled. Double-degree students will resolve any conflicts with these expectations in consultation with their advisors.

Electives


A student should select electives based on the following: a minimum of 76 hours of Conservatory coursework is required; a minimum of 24 hours of liberal arts is required.

Expository Writing Proficiency


Students with an SAT verbal score below 580 or an ACT score below 24, or a TOEFL score below 600 must complete one course chosen from RHET 101 or 102.
