Performance requirements in the form of recital appearances are made by the students in their area of specialization. Recital descriptions and requirements follow:
1. Major Qualifying Recital: a 30 to 40 minute qualifying recital in the second semester of the sophomore year, required of students who desire certification for upper level study as Performance majors. This recital can not be presented in the same semester as the Senior Major Recital.
2. Senior Major Recital: a solo recital, of at least one-hour in length, required of all graduating seniors in a Performance major program.
3. Senior Minor Recital: given jointly by two students (in exceptional cases, three students). Music education majors of special attainment in their performance minor may be granted permission to give a full recital, upon recommendation of their private instructor and approval of the Performance Faculty.
4. Student Recital: weekly Recital is essentially a "performance laboratory." Beginning with the sophomore year, Performance majors are required to appear on student recitals twice each semester. Performance minors must appear at least once each year beginning in the sophomore year. Inclusion is made in collaboration with the instructor and student and with the approval of the Recital Coodinator
