Faculty Resources

Chamber Music

Students registered for F450 or F550 (Chamber Music) are responsible for putting together their own chamber ensembles. Faculty coaches must be obtained by the group. Students who have not established a group and begun to work by the end of the third week of the term must drop the course. Normally seven hours of coaching are considered a minimum, and during the fall and spring semesters a faculty member receives workload credit of one student for every two ensembles coached (i.e., 7 hours of coaching per ensemble for the semester). However, there are provisions for requesting one-to-one workload credit when all concerned consent to a minimum of 14 hours of coaching. All groups receiving coaching are required to give a public performance in an acceptable venue as part of the semester's work.
