Class Schedule: TR 2:00-3:15 Office hours: 11:00-11:50 MWF, 1:00-2:00TR or any other time my office door is open. Text and Materials: Student edition of MLR Score Reading, Music Manuscript paper—pencils, notebook Course Requirements: •Attendance at all class meetings is required. See explanatory text below. •All assignments are to be completed and handed in at the class for which they are due. •There is a significant amount of outside class preparation required (homework, score study, school observations) Grading: Final grade is determined by: 40% assignments, 25% Midterm exam, 10% notebook, 25% Final Exam Final grades are determined on a 10-point basis, with 90-100=A, 80-89=B, etc. *Guideline for evaluation of homework grades A: submitted when due; in very neat format with great attention to detail; far exceeds expectations for an upperdivision class in the major area; anticipates details of assignment and shows obvious research into the area of assignment B: submitted when due or late with all other indicators of an A; neat format with detail given to assignment particulars; exceeds expectations of an upper-division class in the major area; some detail of thought given into researching the assignment. C: submitted when due, or late with other indicators of an A or B; little attention to detail; handwritten, or poorly organized; gives the bare effort of completing the assignment in the literal sense; may not meet expectations of an upperdivision class. D: late with indicators of a C; or, sloppy and illegible in places; no attention to detail; gives the most obvious, minimal information for the assignment; the work turned in could have been done by a non-major in a very short time; spelling and grammar errors. F; late with indicators of C or D; or, very careless work with major misspellings and grammar errors; answers and work nonsensical; shows a lack of respect for the assignment and the student’s peers. Attendance: By now, all students eligible to enroll in MUSI 4326 should be responsible students; however, each unexcused absence will reduce the final grade by 1 point. Because of the inherent collegial nature of music classes, attendance is essential. If a student accumulates eight absences, regardless of the reason, s/he will be asked to drop the class. If the eighth absence occurs after the drop deadline, the student will receive a grade no higher than a D. Student dress and behavior: Baseball caps, pajamas, or sleep pants are prohibited as dress in this class. All cellphones, blackberries, PDAs, etc. are strictly forbidden. Repeated violations will be referred to administration for disciplinary referral.

Grade Replacement If you are repeating this course for a grade replacement, you must file an intent to receive grade forgiveness with the registrar by the 12th day of class. Failure to file an intent to use grade forgiveness will result in both the original and repeated grade being used to calculate your overall grade point average. A student will receive grade forgiveness (grade replacement) for only three (undergraduate student) or two (graduate student) course repeats during his/her career at UT Tyler. (2006-08 Catalog, p. 35)
