(View List of Music Families)

Music activity courses are subject to repeatability limitations. Students are now limited to a maximum of four courses per family. A family of courses may contain more than four courses. If there are more than four courses in a particular family, a student may only enroll in a maximum of four total courses within that family. A course previously taken by a student (prior to the legislation) within the identified family will count as a repeat and limit future enrollments of courses within that family to a maximum of four.

Music activity courses are offered in levels by progression. Courses are listed by title; for example, Piano, Guitar, etc., and then by level. Level I is beginning; Level II is intermediate; Level III is intermediate/advanced; and Level IV is advanced. The course number also indicates the level. For example, a beginning Piano class would be listed as MUS. 301.1, Piano I while an advanced Piano class would be MUS. 301.4, Piano IV.

New students are advised to enroll in the beginning level and be placed by their instructor upon assessment. Continuing students who have previously taken a course within a family, must progress to the next level.
