Those who pass the exam administered by the Keyboard area will complete this requirement by selecting courses from the class instrument or methods elective areas. Students who do not qualify for entry at the 2200 level must complete Keyboard Fundamentals (1200) and/or 1210 as a deficiency.
Wind/Percussion students must complete two semesters of Marching Band (1090). All other instrumental emphasis majors are also strongly urged to elect MUS 1090 (see “Exceptions To Core Requirements” in the Bachelor of Music Program).
Before the student will be recommended for intern teaching, he/she must have a minimum WMU grade-point average of 3.0. Additionally, the student must have earned no grade lower than a “CB” in any courses specific to the music education major (this does not apply to the other Bachelor of Music requirements). The application for intern teaching assignment must be made in the Office of Professional Field Experiences one full year before the assignment is to begin.
