Students interested in taking private music lessons and/or participating in any music ensemble should not pre-register. Instead, they should contact the appropriate member of the music faculty during the week of orientation and registration in the fall or during the first week of classes in the spring. Ensembles and lessons are open to all Hendrix students regardless of major.
The grade earned in each semester of a Music Activity class is included in the computation of the student's grade point average. However, to receive one complete course credit towards graduation, students must complete either
- four activity courses at the 200- or 300-level, or
- two activity courses at the 400-level, or
- one activity course at the 400-level and two at the 200- or 300-level.
A complete course credit earned in this manner may be used to satisfy the Expressive Arts Learning Domain, except in the case where the student has opted to take a MUSA 300 private lesson on a credit-only basis with no grade.
Any number of individual activity courses may be taken by a student. However, non-music majors may count only two course credits from music activity courses toward graduation.
Music majors may earn up to two additional course credits toward graduation (for a total of four) from music activity classes. Music activity fractional credits may NOT be combined with any non-music activity fractional credit for whole course credits.
