Depending on each student's background and development, different texts, pieces of music, and other materials may be needed. All solo literature, books, excerpts, and other materials given by the professor must be acquired by the student in a timely manner. A metronome, tuner, and any applicable valve and slide oil are required for all students. It is also recommended that each student keep a notebook or journal in which to keep track of assignments or other pertinent information, as well as a recording device. Any materials that are lent to a student by the instructor must be returned by the end of the semester to avoid a grade penalty.
Students will be present at all masterclasses, studio courses, and required events. Absence will be allowed without penalty in a rare circumstance of illness or another situation beyond the student’s control (i.e. wedding, death in the family, accident, course sanctioned event, etc.). If a student cannot attend a lesson, studio class, or required event, you should contact the professor prior to the required event, or as soon as possible. Absence without the professor’s consent will result in an assigned grade of F for that lesson or event and will be reflected in the student’s final grade, in accordance with the grading scale listed below. Active participation in Tuba masterclasses, master courses, ensembles, and attending recitals is essential to the growth of each of you as musicians.
