Music Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study (Hartt)

The Minor in Music program is open to all non-music students in and out of Hartt who wish to broaden their experience in music in a formal program. Applicants must have a rudimentary understanding of music and an area of performance experience (instrument or voice).

To complete the minor in music, the student must register for a letter grade for all music courses and must receive a grade no lower than a C in each course. Hartt will notify the student’s home college when requirements for the minor have been completed.

Admission Process

Students should consult with and secure the approval of their home college academic advisor, then proceed with the following:

  1. Interview with The Hartt School evaluator to determine course, examination, and audition requirements.
  2. Take the placement examination in harmony and ear training, as required.
  3. Take the audition for placement in a performing organization (choir, band, orchestra), if such course electives are chosen.
  4. Take the audition for acceptance and placement in private music instruction, if such elective lessons are chosen. An additional fee is assessed for non-Hartt students electing to register for private lessons.

To complete the admissions process, fill out and process the University’s Change of Curriculum Status form to add the minor. This form requires the signatures of the major school advisor and dean, as well as the Hartt director of undergraduate studies. For additional information on the minor in music, contact the Hartt School evaluator in room 204-7 in the Fuller Music Center.
