                            MUSIC AT FISK UNIVERSITY


Music has occupied a central role in the Fisk experience since the University‘s opening in
1866. The first historic tour of the Fisk Jubilee Singers® established a reputation for
excellence in musical performance and preserved the rich heritage of the Negro Spiritual.
The Fisk University Music Department was established in 1885 by Jenny Robinson, an
Oberlin graduate, to unify the existing music coursework taught at Fisk. The ensembles
required curricular study that fortified music students with conservatory-style training in
voice, piano, and instruments, as well as music theory and literature. Over the years, her
vision has stood strong, providing an atmosphere that has produced musical leaders
including Dr. Matthew Kennedy ‘47, pianist and director of the Fisk Jubilee Singers®,
Dr. Joyce Bolden ‗53, organist, retired Chair of the Alcorn-State University Music
Department and the first African-American woman to serve on the Commission for
Accreditation of the National Association of Schools of Music, Dr. Richard M. Turner
III, pianist, consultant, former Director of the Fisk Jubilee Singers® and President of five
different Community Colleges, Dr. Kaye George Roberts ‗72, the first African-American
woman to complete the D.M.A. in orchestral conducting at Yale University, and current
conductor of the New England Orchestra, and R & B recording artist Ted Jarrett ‘74.
Fisk continues to produce graduates who are on track to be leaders in their fields,
including Gwendolyn Brown ‘87, mezzo-soprano with the Lyric Opera of Chicago,
Rachel Waiters ‘00, soprano, Artist in Residence with the Memphis Opera, Demetrius
Delancy ‘03, pianist, who recently completed the M.A. in Arts Management from the
University of Illinois, Kristi King ‘03, soprano, who completed the M.A. from the
University of Reading, England and is pursuing the Ph.D. in Music Education from the
University of Illinois, Morris Thomas ‘03, who completed the M.A. from The Ohio State
University and the Ph.D. from Morgan State University, and Angela Stockdale ‘06,
recently completed the M.M. degree from the Hartt School, University of Hartford.

In 2010, the University streamlined her administration and combined Music, Art,
English, and Foreign Languages into the Department of Arts and Languages. Fisk
continues to provide students the opportunity to develop individual talent, appreciation,
and aesthetic sensibility. Fisk University is a member of the National Association of
Schools of Music (NASM).

With full-time faculty for piano, voice, organ, woodwinds, and brass instruction, the
Academic Area of Music has a sound history of combining conservatory-style training
with African-American traditional music, and provides excellent education with a broad-
based technical competency and proficiency in preparing students for careers in music.
Strong leadership qualities and personal and musical growth are nurtured by the provision
of a creative atmosphere. The Music Area functions within the Department of Arts and
Languages in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.

                        NON MUSIC-MAJOR OPPORTUNITIES

Recognizing that the study of music encourages self-discipline, requires attention to
detail, and develops creative thinking and an understanding of non-linear relationships
that is helpful in all fields, students in all majors are encouraged to study music at Fisk.
Introductory and survey courses are open to all students without audition. Any student
may audition for secondary or principal study, participate in the ensembles, attend
concerts and recitals, or be considered for the social music student organizations.

                                                                                         -6-
                                 ACADEMIC POLICIES

Academic and Professional Standards
The academic policies and requirements of the University are intended to be firm, and the
University seeks to administer them with consistency and evenhandedness. When
exceptional circumstances require students to request waivers of normal academic
policies and requirements, these requests should be addressed in writing with a student
academic petition form. Variations in normal policies, requirements, and standards can be
considered only when there is a strong rationale for divergence from the normal practice
in a particular case; when there is no likelihood that the variation will set a precedent that
could adversely affect the University's standards; and when in the judgment of the
appropriate University authorities it is in the educational interests of the petitioning
student, and not contrary to the interests of other students or of the University, that the
waiver be granted. Accordingly, waivers are not considered for such fundamental
University standards as credits, grades, or GPA requirements for graduation. Students'
failures to plan or carry out their work appropriately or in a timely manner, or to acquaint
themselves with applicable University regulations, do not constitute sufficient reason for
waiver of a normal standard, regulation, requirement, or practice.
2006–2007 University Bulletin, p. 42

Fisk assumes no responsibility for students' errors in the planning of their studies. It is
important, therefore, for students to work closely with their advisors in selecting courses.
It is the student's responsibility to be familiar with the contents of this Bulletin, and with
whatever changes in its provisions may be adopted during the lifetime of this edition. In
addition to the Bulletin, the University provides the services of the admission staff, the
registrar, the student affairs staff, the Provost Office, and the faculty to assist the student
in understanding Fisk's programs and regulations. As University programs evolve
according to the best educational judgment of the faculty, administration, and trustees,
the University publishes announcements of changes. But it remains at all times the
student's responsibility to stay informed of University policies
2008–2010 University Bulletin, p. 74

Academic policies of the Music Area are set by the Music Faculty and are in accordance
with stated university policies. Due to the unique, intense nature of the professional
world for which music students prepare to live and work, the curriculum is stringent and
the necessity for adherence is strict. In keeping with university policies and the need for
pre-professional musicians to develop self-discipline, control, and an unrelenting work
ethic, all required music courses for music majors must be taken at Fisk. Transcripts
of students who come to Fisk from other institutions will continue to be evaluated
according to University policy, but placement exams in music theory and piano will be
required, as well as an audition on the principal instrument.




                                                                                           -7-
Attendance Policy in the Classroom
Attendance in class is strictly required by University policy. In each course, students who
miss more than ten percent of the scheduled class meetings (including labs) due to
unexcused absences will be in danger of failing the course. For a class that meets three
times per week, the number of unexcused absences would be five class sessions; for a
class that meets twice a week, three class sessions; and for a class that meets once per
week, two class sessions. More strenuous requirements may be applicable, as stated by
individual instructors in their respective course syllabi.

It is the student‘s responsibility to get any assignments or receive information that was
covered during class from another classmate, not the professor. Faculty plan for classes
accordingly, and it is not fair to the professors or classmates to consistently
inconvenience others because of one‘s lack of attendance.

The University Bulletin, p. 70, contains information regarding classroom absences for
University-sanctioned educational activities, including ensemble performances. The
ensemble director will notify the Provost‘s Office and Music Area Coordinator regarding
sanctioned absences. It is the students‘ responsibility to check with all professors in
advance of the absence regarding assignments and readings that must be made up. The
wording in the University Bulletin does not cover all possible scenarios, and no student
should assume automatic immunity. Students must communicate with their professors.

Late Policy in the Classroom
Students must arrive to each class on time. Arriving more than ten minutes late will be
considered an unexcused absence.

Honesty and Work Ethic
Every student must observe strong work ethics. Assignments are to be done on time and
turned in to the appropriate professor. At the discretion of the professor, a re-write of
unsatisfactory work may be required.

Work turned in by a student shall be the work of that student and only that student.
Plagiarism will not be tolerated. This includes copying the work of others from any
source including the internet, books, articles, other student papers, and any other source
used to gather information. Plagiarism is not defined by length. ANY copied material
that is not your own MUST be referenced and the source MUST be identified.

During the course of study or research, the student will use others‘ work and document it
accordingly. The writing manual is available from the University bookstore.

The student who is caught plagiarizing will automatically receive a zero for the
assignment, and if the same student is caught twice, that student will automatically fail
the course.




                                                                                        -8-
Academic Probation
The University policy on academic probation is described in the University Bulletin, p.
40. Non-credit participation in ensembles, participation in Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, Soror
Musica, or any University club or Greek-Letter organization is considered extra-
curricular is forbidden to students on academic probation. However, a music major is
required by NASM to participate in a musical ensemble every semester in which he/she is
enrolled as a full-time student; a music major on academic probation may be forbidden to
participate in a performance setting. Participation in one and only one ensemble may
fulfill this requirement; a student on probation may not use this exemption to justify
participation in multiple ensembles. All faculty and students should recognize the quality
of the institution they represent, and should remain true ambassadors of the University.

Professionalism
University students are in the process of learning how to conduct themselves in a
professional environment, including professional responsibilities toward each other and
toward supervisors and faculty, and appropriate manners and dress. To remind students
of the importance of professionalism, the University dress code and rules of conduct will
be encouraged in the Harris Music Building. The Fisk University Student Handbook is
available online: http://www.fisk.edu/.

Scholarships
Each year a certain amount of scholarships are available for music students. The dollar
amount of scholarships changes each year. Check online at www.Fisk.edu and go to

Applied music study for the music major is an important part of his/her academic and
professional career. Although there are different repertoire requirements for students in
the different degree programs, three factors remain constant: study of a principal
instrument each semester, four semesters of a secondary instrument, and the piano
proficiency exam. String, wind and percussion majors are expected to supply their own
instruments.

Principal Applied Study
The following principal applied courses are required for piano majors:
B.A.:         MUS 151, 152, 251, 252, 351, 352, 451, 452, 450
B.S.:         MUS 151, 152, 251, 252, 351, 352, 455, 450
B.Mus.:       MUS 151, 152, 253, 254, 355, 356, 350, 455, 456, 450

The following principal applied courses are required for voice majors:
B.A.or Joint: MUS 171, 172, 271, 272, 371, 372, 471, 472, 470
B.S.:         MUS 171, 172, 271, 272, 371, 372, 475, 470
B.Mus.:       MUS 171, 172, 273, 274, 375, 376, 370, 475, 476, 470

Course requirements are similar for guitar (begin with MUS 131), brass (begin with 141),
organ (begin with MUS 161), strings (begin with MUS 121), and woodwinds (begin with
191).

                                                                                       -9-
Attendance Policy in Applied Lessons
One hour (50-minute) lesson each week:
Due to the importance of applied study, no more than one absence will be allowed
without penalty during the semester. Except for absences sanctioned by the Music Area,
no absences from private lessons are excused. If a student knows in advance of any
unavoidable conflict, he/she may consult with the applied teacher. Rescheduling is at the
discretion of the professor.

Two half-hour (25-minute) lessons each week:
Due to the importance of applied study, no more than one absence will be allowed
without penalty during the semester. No absences from private lessons are excused. If a
student knows in advance of any conflict, he/she must consult with the applied teacher
about rescheduling. If the student becomes ill, he/she must contact the applied instructor
before the scheduled lesson time. Students who miss four lessons will lose two letter
grades on the final grade for the course. Students who miss six lessons of private applied
study will be asked to drop the course.

In the case of applied students who are asked to drop a course, reinstatement is at the
discretion of the music faculty. Conflicts that students believe to be valid are often
unacceptable to professional musicians and music educators, and would destroy a career
and the institution‘s reputation in the academic and professional world. Such a situation
will not be tolerated.



Studio Class, Technique Workshop, Master Classes, and Seminar
Each applied area conducts a weekly course outside of the private lesson. All voice
majors meet MTRF at 8 a.m.; All piano majors meet T, 4:00-4:50 p.m. These auxiliary
functions are REQUIRED of all music majors. Specific attendance requirements will be
included in the syllabus.

All music majors and music minors are required to perform a minimum of three times per
semester in MUS 157/158 Seminar in Music Performance and Literature. All music
majors must register for the course each semester. Music minors must register for the
course during each semester of applied study. Repertoire must be approved by the
applied teacher.




                                                                                     - 10 -
Juried Exams
Each semester all music students in private applied study must pass two juried exams.
The jury will consist of available faculty members. Usually the exams are administered
during the week of mid-term and the last week of classes. Technique and repertoire
requirements for each area are available from the applied faculty.

First or second semester: 10 minutes; Third or fourth semester: 20 minutes

Each fourth-semester music major MUST prepare a memorized 20-minute program of
repertoire appropriate to the instrument. The faculty will admit the student to upper-level
study or place the student on probation for one semester. A probationary student who
fails to meet this requirement in the fifth semester will be asked to change his/her major.

A student who does not show up for the final juried exam fails the course for the semester
with the grade of ―E,‖ regardless of other progress or grades earned during the semester.
The failing grade may be appealed by presenting the Music Area Coordinator with a valid
documentation representing a reasonable excuse to receive permission to retake the exam.

Except in semesters when the Junior or Senior Recital is performed, upper-level juries
will last 20 minutes. A recital-approval jury will be convened for students preparing
degree recitals. Students who perform degree recitals will be excused from the very next
juried exam.

Degree Recitals
The capstone experience in applied study is the appropriate degree recital, a formal,
juried presentation in a concert of learned repertoire appropriate to the required level for
the instrument. Required recitals include:

B.A. or B.S. MUS 450, 470, etc. (40 minutes)
B.Mus.: MUS 350, 370, etc. (30 minutes) and MUS 450, 470, etc. (50 minutes)
Repertoire will be chosen in consultation with the applied instructor and must be
approved by the applied instructor. Literature will include at least three performance
genres (i.e. nationalities, languages, historical periods, styles, composers, etc.). Except in
cases where performance tradition dictates otherwise, all repertoire will be
MEMORIZED.

The degree recital is a solo recital. The student must be enrolled in the appropriate
course number and engage an accompanist (if appropriate) as soon as the repertoire is
chosen. A list of accompanists will be supplied to each student enrolled in MUS 370 or
MUS 470 at the beginning of the recital-planning process. The accompanist should be
engaged at least six (6) months before the performance, and will be paid from Applied
Music Fees.

A draft of the recital program with a biographical sketch of the performer and appropriate
program notes and/or translations, initialed by the private instructor, must be submitted to
the Music Area Coordinator at least ten (10) days prior to the recital-approval jury.


                                                                                        - 11 -
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THIS JURY TAKE PLACE WITHOUT THE
APPROPRIATE DOCUMENTATION.
The recital-approval jury will comprise all available full-time music faculty and will
usually be scheduled for a Thursday afternoon between 3 and 5 p.m. The applied teacher
and two other music faculty must be present. The recital will either be approved as
ready, or the student will be invited back after partial approval. The initial jury must be
convened no later than four weeks prior to the target recital date. The recital will not take
place less than two weeks after final approval.

The Senior Recital must be performed no later than three weeks preceding
commencement exercises. The Music Area will provide 50 folded programs and will
insure the piano is maintained and tuned. If the student wishes to provide special paper,
that paper should be supplied to the Music Area Coordinator no less than two weeks
before the recital date.

Students must request recital dates through the Music Area Coordinator as necessary.
Tentative reservations may be made at any time during the semester, subject to the jury.

Secondary Applied Study
Most music majors choose piano as their secondary instrument because of the piano
proficiency requirement for all music degrees; most piano principals choose voice as a
secondary instrument. Four semesters of a secondary instrument is required of music
majors.

The following principal applied courses are required if piano is the secondary instrument:
MUS 150A, 150B, 250A, 250B. Group or private instruction will be offered, based on
the ability of the students.

The following principal applied courses are required if voice is the secondary instrument:
MUS 170A, 170B, 270A, 270B

The fourth semester of piano culminates in the piano proficiency exam. For students in
class instruction this will be the only juried exam. Students in private instruction will
have played juried exams twice each semester. The requirements for the Piano
Proficiency Exam are being reviewed. The content of the Piano Proficiency Exam for
students through the class of 2012 will be included in the syllabus for all Secondary
Piano Courses.

Applied Options for the General Music Student
The opportunity for applied music study is available to all students at Fisk, conditional
upon instructor availability and student needs. Beginners from any major are encouraged
to register for class instruction in guitar, piano, strings, or voice.

Non-music majors interested in advanced study of an instrument, Music Technology, or
Music Theory are encouraged to speak with the instructor before registering for
coursework.



                                                                                       - 12 -
Applied Music Fees
Due to the added expense related to small classes or private instruction, the following
fees are assessed to students enrolled in applied music:

Group instruction, one 50-minute class each week:            $105 per semester
Group instruction, two 50-minute classes each week:          $130 per semester
Private instruction, one 25-minute lesson each week:         $130 per semester
Private instruction, one 50-minute lesson each week:         $155 per semester
Private instruction, two 25-minute lessons each week:        $155 per semester
Junior or Senior Recital                                     $310 per recital

Applied instruction fees for voice instruction are waived for students who are accepted
into the Fisk Jubilee Singers® and music majors on the Molly Taylor Stevenson Music
Scholarship. The applied music fee applies to MUS 110 Principles of Jazz Improvisation
and MUS 120 Introduction to Music Technology. The funds will be used for instrument
maintenance, adjunct faculty salaries, and accompanist fees.

Ensemble Study
Each program, B.Mus., B.S., and B.A., requires a minimum or two semesters of
University Choir and a minimum of two semesters in either Chamber Ensemble, Jazz
Ensemble, Jubilee Singers, or University Band. Each full-time music major must
participate in an ensemble each semester. The student must know his/her plan and is
responsible for registering for the appropriate ensembles. The experience must be
thorough and varied to meet standards of NASM, and appropriate academic credit must
be shown to meet academic policies of Fisk University. Ensemble students who are
enrolled for credit will be exempt from one hour of overload fee if they are carrying more
than 18 credits. Music majors without the minimum G.P.A. will be required to rehearse
with the appropriate ensemble but may be restricted from performing or touring until they
remove the deficiency.

Conducting skills
All professional musicians MUST possess competencies in ensemble leadership and
rehearsal techniques. Two semesters of conducting are required of students in all
programs. The fall conducting course concentrates on choral rehearsal techniques and
repertoire, and the spring course concentrates on band/orchestral techniques and
repertoire.

Music Theory and Music History
A professional musician MUST possess a total, comprehensive understanding of the art,
its construction, historical context, interpretation, research and function. Comprehension,
analysis and synthesis are developed in the Music History, Materials of Music,
Orchestration, and Counterpoint courses, required of all music majors. Supplementary
study is available in Crosscurrents in African and African-American Music, History of
Jazz, American Music, etc.

Music Education
Students working toward the B.S in Music Education program must complete coursework
in elementary and secondary music methods, as well as instrumental pedagogies (brass,
woodwind, percussion, and strings). Students are required to student teach a minimum of
twelve weeks during their senior year. B.S. students complete a series of three praxis
exams in music theory, music history, and general education (elementary, middle, or high
school level—any of these levels are acceptable). Music Education students should
complete the Music Content Praxis Exam before being accepted as a Music Education
Senior. All three exams should be passed before student teaching. Upon completion of
proper documentation, the state of Tennessee will grant licensure. All Music Education
students must familiarize themselves with the Handbook for Student Teachers from the
Director of Teacher Certification and the Music Education Handbook, which is presented
as Appendix B of the Music Student Handbook.

Music Technology
Music majors are REQUIRED to demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of
notation/sequencing software and music technology applications. This is accomplished
through the Materials of Music, Counterpoint, Orchestration courses, Class Piano
courses, and the elective Music Technology course.

Pedagogy skills
Pedagogical skills, including anatomy of the human body applicable to singing and
instrument playing must be demonstrated in technique workshops or studio classes in the
applied instruments. Performance psychology, avoiding performance-related injury, and
an incorporation of learning styles and development-appropriate literature are included in
the technique workshops and studio classes.

Language skills
B.A and B. Mus student must complete a language requirement. Additionally, because of
standard vocal repertoire, singers MUST demonstrate competency in English, French,
German, and Italian diction.



                                                                                     - 14 -
Research
The Independent Study course is required of all B.A. music students. This requires
research work that is presented at the end of the semester in a public forum. Additional
research may be required based on the demands of individual courses as well as applied
instructors requiring research in performance practices.

Music Business Minor          Dr. Philip Autry    Harris 102         pautry@fisk.edu

Business majors pursuing the concentration in Music Business must see an advisor in the
Department of Business Administration.

The advising process is very important (see p. 5). Because of the professional nature of
the field of music, students should view their advisors as mentors, who have already
achieved academic and professional success. The advisor can assist in making sure the
student makes satisfactory progress. No music major will be recommended for
participation in commencement exercises until all coursework is complete.

To insure that students are encouraged to make satisfactory progress throughout the
program, they are not allowed to pre-register without consulting with their advisors.
Although the university culture is such that students want to complete within four years,
and the program is designed so that this is possible, there are several conditions that may
set up this desire as unrealistic. These conditions include, but are not limited to:
1.      Academic probation that reduces the number of hours a student may take,
2.      Failure to meet minimum standards in courses which must be retaken,
3.      Participation in activities organized by non-musicians who do not recognize the
        commitment necessary for rigorous programs of study in music, or
3.      Personal issues which make satisfactory progress difficult or impossible.

Music students should view their advisors and principle instructors as mentors in their
respective fields. Keep them confidentially informed of issues that may impede
satisfactory progress. When a student has used all the excused absences, then his or her
advisor is notified via email. The advisor will consult with the teacher of the class and
applied teacher. The student will be contacted, the situation will be diagnosed, and the
student will be provided with alternative strategies for meeting syllabus requirements.

When a student‘s academic work is below C, his or her advisor is notified via email (cc to
the Music Area Coordinator and applied teacher). The advisor will consult with the
teacher of the class and applied teacher. The student will be contacted, the situation will
be diagnosed, and the student will be provided with alternative strategies for meeting
syllabus requirements.



                                                                                      - 15 -
                         EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES


The Music Area is proud to sponsor non-credit, social student organizations for music
majors, music minors, music business majors, ensemble participants, and other full-time
students and alumni interested in music. Students must realize, however, that although these
organizations have the full support of the faculty, they are not allowed to conflict with
courses, tours, concerts, recitals, or other business of the Music Area. Occasionally, the
Department may ask students or student organizations to assist the University at a time that
necessitates missing classes, and in such cases, the Provost‘s Office will assist in requesting
reasonable latitude. Meetings may not be held during standard rehearsal or class time (except
for committee meetings that do not involve students from the effected rehearsals or classes).
Activities that conflict with Department-sponsored recitals or concerts may cause the
organization being placed on probation.


Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. The Zeta Rho Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia was established at
Fisk University on May 23, 1953. The Object of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is ―for the
development of the best and truest fraternal spirit, the mutual welfare and brotherhood of

STUDENT TEACHING FOR THE MUSIC EDUCATION SENIOR

       A. Relationships

          1. The cooperating teacher is crucial to your success. Develop an honest and
             trustworthy relationship with this individual. This person was chosen
             specifically to help you succeed. Ask them for advice. Observe the music
             in their classroom and how the students interact. They would not have a
             student teacher in their classroom if they did not have the experience,
             knowledge, and mentorship necessary in helping you.
          2. The university supervisor will evaluate you on a regular basis. You will be
             evaluated approximately four times for each school. The university
             supervisor will give you constructive feedback so that your progress and
             willingness to learn can be evaluated. The cooperating teacher will also
             give you feedback. The university professor is there to help with any
             problems you may encounter with your experience, but it will not be the
             function of Fisk University to ―save‖ you from problems you may
             encounter. It is the responsibility of the student teacher to work things out
             with the cooperating teacher should any problems arise.
          3. Make sure the principal knows who you are and greet them as often as
             possible. Tell them you are learning a great deal and thank them for the
             experience of working at their school. Smile.
          4. Learn who works in the office and address them by name every morning
             you check in. They are generally the individuals who actually make the
             school run smoothly, and they are important people. Smile.
          5. Become friendly with the janitors and maintenance crew. They are part of
             your experience and your support staff. You never know when you will
             need extra chairs for a music assembly or help with some maintenance
             issue. Get to know their names.


                                                                                    - 19 -
   6. Interact with other teachers at the school. Take your lunch to the faculty
       lounge and share with them. They will also help in any way they can.
   7. Interact with parents when the opportunity arises. Tell them how much
       you enjoy working with (insert child‘s name).
   8. Have a support system that you can depend on when you have a tough
       day. If possible, become friends with student teachers from other
       universities. This may be hard to do, but can be done by observing #9.
   9. Go to as many extra-curriculum activities as possible without burning
       yourself out. Concerts and performances at other schools are a great way
       to become involved and meet similar people and musicians. But, your time
       is also a special commodity. Do not try and do everything. Go to dinner, a
       movie, or hang out with friends at least once a week. It will keep you
       balanced.
   10. Obviously, one of the most important relationships is the one you have
       with your students. Get to know of their interests and who they are, but
       remember that you are the teacher. Foster relationships that let the student
       know you care, but do not come involved with them personally. In the
       event of anything suspect of drugs, sex, abuse, or psychological problem
       should be dealt with through proper channels. Let the cooperative teacher
       deal with those problems.


B. Common Mistakes Made by Young Music Teachers (and young teachers in
   general): Almost all of the concerns or mistakes will be handled by the
   cooperating teacher. They will not subject you to a great deal of failure, and
   you will be copying their lesson plans or instructive to get you through the
   student teaching experience. But, the following concepts are all important
   aspects to understand as you begin the process of learning to teach music.
   1. Trying to act ―cool‖ in front of your students. Do not talk down to their
       ―lingo‖ or slang. Use it to let them know you understand, but remember
       that you are not their peer. They may have hand signals, language or
       behaviors that they use among themselves. Knowing what those mean will
       help you understand their world, but it is not wise to adopt them as your
       communication constructs for the students,
   2. Attempting to be too friendly with your students. Every teachers wants to
       be loved by their students. Remember that you are representing your
       university, their music program, and yourself as a working professional.
       The surest and safest road to gaining their love and respect is by being a
       good teacher and role model.
   3. Trying to talk over your students because they are talking (actually some
       experiences teachers are just as guilty).
   4. Not admitting mistakes. If you give out wrong information or do
       something stupid, admit it, and go on. Everybody makes mistakes, the
       students will not it against you.
   5. It is far easier to be stricter and matter-of-fact with them in the beginning
       stages then loosen the reins than the opposite. Once you loose control, it‘s
       hard to get it back. Be strict and firm in the beginning stages, Sacrifice
       popularity for solid teaching. Your cooperating teacher will help you with

                                                                             - 20 -
       this. They will not leave you alone in the classroom to deal with behavior
       problems.
   6. Knowing something is wrong with the lesson, rehearsal, voicing, rhythm,
       but NOT RECOGNIZING WHAT IT IS. This is normal. Experience will
       guide you.
   7. Knowing something is wrong, but NOT KNOWING HOW TO
       CORRECT IT.
   8. Too many ―verbal directives‖ and not enough ―non-verbal
       communication.‖ Teachers talking on and on with explanations work
       against the students producing.
   9. Pace of the class too slow (with easy stuff) or too fast (sometimes with
       new information)
   10. Do not be a robot to a lesson plan that‘s not working, Try something else
       even it means improvisation on your part.
   11. Speaking in ―college vernacular‖ which is confusing to young music
       students (―start at the transposition section‖).
   12. Time management. What things are most important for this music lesson?
       How much time do you spend on working with things that do not produce
       results?
   13. Not being able to accurately read the faces and reactions of your students.
       If they are not smiling and engaged, why not? Are they easily distracted
       by each other or other activities?
   14. Trying to focus on one genre or style. Children as well as secondary
       students appreciate and understand variety in music. Remember the nine
       standards in music education and incorporate music as history and culture
       as well as interdisciplinary with the other arts.
   15. Learning how to adopt a proper ―reward and consequence‖ system that is
       fair to all students and reflects the mission of the school. What will your
       system be and how will you rate/grade the student?
   16. Not focusing on music or behavior that is ―age-level‖ appropriate
   17. Not focusing on proper voice, instrument, or musical techniques to
       INCREASE musicality. The first and only respective is that you are a
       musician.
   18. Letting the students dictate what or how you teach.
   19. Understanding the value of competition, but not this override the focused
       teaching agenda.
   20. Learning how little you know.

C. Gaining Credibility
   1. Dress—No single factor is more important in your first few weeks than in
      your attire. Be conservative in your approach. No jeans, tee-shirts, short
      skirts, bagging pants, or excessive jewelry. No shorts.
   2. Speech—College educated people speak with proper English. Keep
      geographical or ethnic vernacular in check.
   3. Writing—Always write in complete sentences even if its just a note to a
      student. It matters to the school and the parents.
   4. Demure—You are approachable, inviting, anf a good personality. People
      like to work with you.

                                                                             - 21 -
       5. Knowledge—Your students and colleagues respect your knowledge and
          insight with your music experiences.
       6. Discipline—Your lessons start on time and you do not allow fooling
          around. Students respect the agenda and musicality.
       7. Consistency—Your approach is of the same quality every time. Students
          know what to expect and are treated equally.
       8. Professionalism—You always invite discourse, but handle yourself
          without anger or prejudice. Everyone learns from each other.
       9. Language—Always professional and direct. No ethnic or cultural slang or
          profanity. Use the words ―thank you,‖ ―please,‖ and ―I appreciate that‖
          with enthusiasm.


OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

                 You assume the schedule of Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools
                  (MNPS), not Fisk University.
                 You will have no other classes, ensembles, or commitment to Fisk
                  University other than that of student teaching. This includes
                  weekend and evening commitment. You are to act as an employee
                  of MNPS.
                 You have no absences allowed. However, nobody wants you to
                  show up and spread germs and sickness. Your calls should be first
                  to the cooperating teacher and to the university supervisor. You
                  will need a doctor‘s note in excess of two days. You MUST have
                  at least 14 weeks of student teaching (seven in each school) so if
                  you are unable to fulfill your obligation for whatever reason, you
                  may not graduate on time.
                 You are encouraged to spend a two hours during the semester
                  visiting each other and watching each other teach. This is done so
                  on the approval of your cooperating teacher.
                 Begin to join professional organizations and become visible in the
                  school community as one who is involved.
                 Please get a small token of appreciation and card for your
                  cooperating teachers. It means more than you think.
                 Most Universities use a pass/fail grade for student teaching. Fisk
                  University still issues grades for student teaching. You must
                  receive a C+ or better to pass student teaching. If one evaluation is
                  less than that, you will be sent a letter of reprimand by the
                  university supervisor and copied to the department chair. If you‘re
                  second evaluation has not improved, you will not pass student
                  teaching.
