[1]  Academic Calendar Changing Beginning Summer 2012

As you may be aware, IU's academic calendar is changing effective summer 2012. These changes will affect the dates of the summer term and the fall semester. Though not all the details have been settled yet, we want to let you know what we know at this point. We will provide additional information as soon as possible.

Summer classes in the Jacobs School of Music will begin about two weeks earlier than in previous years, with classes still running approximately eight weeks. Classes will begin no sooner than Monday, June 4, and end no later than Wednesday, August 1. We will send out exact dates as soon as they have been determined. (This year, Summer Session II runs Friday, June 17, through Friday, August 12.)

The Fall 2012 semester will begin Monday, August 20, with new student orientation beginning Monday, August 13. (The first day of classes Fall 2011 is Monday, August 29.)

________________________________________________________________

[2]  Ensemble Requirement Waived for Summer 2012 (only)

By action of the School of Music Council, participation in ensemble will not be required for any student during the 2012 summer term. Some large ensembles, including the Festival Orchestra and the Summer Band, will still be formed during the summer (2012). Interested students who are invited to play in these ensembles will be offered scholarships in exchange for their participation in the ensemble. A decision about the summer ensemble policy for 2013 and following will be made after the effects of this policy on enrollment and ensemble participation have been assessed. Undergraduate, Master's, and Diploma students enrolling during Summer Session II 2011 must still enroll in ensemble.

________________________________________________________________

[3] Registration for Summer and Fall 2011 (reminder)

Registration for summer 2011 started on Wednesday, March 23.  Registration for fall 2011 started on Monday, April 4.

Please remember that you will need to submit a Program Planning Sheet to the Music Graduate Office before you will be eligible to register for either semester.  You can do this by submitting an online Program Planning Sheet at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/PPS.shtml.   We are accepting Program Planning Sheets for summer and fall registration now.

Summer session II 2011 will take place from Friday, June 17 through Friday, August 12.  Summer session II is the only time that graduate level music courses are offered in the summer (we don’t offer any courses during summer session I).

http://registrar.indiana.edu/scheduleoclasses/prl/soc4115/MUS/index.html is a direct link to the summer Schedule of Classes.

Fall semester 2011 will take place from Monday, August 29 through Friday, December 16.  http://registrar.indiana.edu/scheduleoclasses/prl/soc4118/MUS/index.html is a direct link to the fall Schedule of Classes.

For information about how to prepare for registration, please read the following web page: http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/registration.shtml. 

Don’t forget that master’s and diploma students are required to register in a major ensemble if they register in any course during summer session II.  Ensemble registration is also required for master’s and diploma students registered for fall. 

To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on to OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the "Student Self-Service" button on the left side of the page. Next, click on the Go to Student Center link.  From that page, click on My Academics and Grades.  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc.  The Academic Advisement Report has a breakdown of all of your requirements and tracks which requirements you have already completed.  It is an incredibly useful tool to use while you decide what to take in the spring semester.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment to see me by calling 855-1738. You can also email either serbes@indiana.edu or musgrad@indiana.edu with your questions. 

All currently registered students will see two “Advising” holds on their records in OneStart.  These holds prevent students from registering for summer and/or fall until the appropriate program planning sheet is approved.  The holds do not affect your records in any way other than preventing you from registering for summer and/or fall, so don’t worry if you see them. 

________________________________________________________________

[4]  Applications for Graduation for May and August 2011 (reminder)

If you are planning to graduate this May or August, you will need to fill out an application for graduation. You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/graduation/gradApp.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011).  The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete. 

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart.  The way you get to your academic advisement report (formerly called the degree progress report) is to log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the “student center” link.  From that page, click on “my academics and grades.”  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. Click on “view my advisement report.”  Near the end of the report there is a line for "Application for Graduation".  If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation.  If the line is not red and says "Satisfied," then we have.

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony.

There are no negative repercussions to applying if you end up graduating later (you’ll just need to submit a new application for graduation if your plans change).

[3]  Vocal Pedagogy Courses (MUS-E 694 and MUS-E 695 for doctoral students and MUS-E 594 for master’s students)

The doctoral vocal pedagogy courses (MUS-E 694 and MUS-E 695) will be offered with the following pattern:

Summer II 2011:  MUS-E 695

Fall 2011: MUS-E 694

Summer 2012: MUS-E 694

Fall 2012: MUS-E 695

Summer 2013: MUS-E 695

Fall 2013: MUS-E 694

The master’s vocal pedagogy course (MUS-E 594) will be offered in summer, fall, and spring each year. 

Please use this information to plan your schedule so that you don’t miss a course offering.  For example, if you are a DM Voice student and haven’t taken MUS-E 694 yet, you should take it this fall (or in summer 2012) because it won’t be offered again after that until fall 2013.

[2]  Course announcements for summer session II and fall 2011

The Music Graduate Office invited faculty to submit short course announcements for this e-mail, for you to use as you decide what to register for in the summer session II and fall 2011.  Not all of these courses will count for every degree or program.

Summer Session II:

Subject catalog number: MUS-N 561

Class title: Introduction to MIDI and Computer Music

Class number: 6323

Class meeting time: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 11:30 am to 1PM

Instructor name: Alicyn Warren, Adjunct Assistant Professor

Introduction to MIDI and Computer Music is designed to teach both music majors and non-music majors the basics of the MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) system, its software, and the instruments commonly used with desktop MIDI workstations, such as synthesizers and digital samplers. Course work includes a series of creative projects and two quizzes.

This course is geared for those with little prior technical training.The course is normally offered in the fall and spring semesters and during Summer Session II. It is 3 credit hours. Classes meet in room M373 in the Music Library, which holds enough equipment for each student to have hands-on experience during class.

Subject catalog number: MUS-M 510

Class title: [Special Topics]Charles Burney: An 18th-Century Musical Grand Tour

Class number: 7285

Class meeting time: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 10:30 am to 11:55 am

Instructor name: Mary Paquette-Abt

Description:

Dr. Charles Burney (1726-1814) was well known in his lifetime as a music teacher, historian, and critic.  His voice has remained surprisingly authoritative down to our own day, lending a measure of respect to any musical person or subject that he happened to have mentioned in his General History of Music or the accounts of his travels on the European continent.  Even in this day of revisionist readings and critical examinations of musical pronouncements of the past, Burney seems to have retained his luster as a trusted eye-witness of the music of his own time. 

Who, then, was Charles Burney and how did he come to be such a prolific and respected writer and critic?  What other enterprises did he engage in during his lifetime?  Most interestingly, who were the musicians and what kind of music-making did he find worthy of commentary?  Using Burney’s travel writings as a core text we will approach eighteenth-century music from the view of contemporary performance, not just new composition.  We will use Burney’s account of his 1770 travels through France and Italy, and his 1772 trip through Central Europe, to focus on musical life in European cultural centers, to see what he saw and heard in Paris and Venice, Mannheim and Vienna, and in his native London.  Through pieces, composers, performances, and institutions in each of those locales we will approach music-making in the eighteenth century through its contemporary performance and reception.     

Fall:

Subject catalog number: MUS M510

Class title: Process Music

Class number: 4892

Class meeting time: MW 1-2:15

Instructor name: Prof. Phil Ford

This course deals with the postwar avant-garde and focuses on "process" compositions -- pieces that specify (often through written instructions) an action or process to be carried out by humans or machines, with or without an audience. While John Cage's 4'33" inspired many such pieces, process music can include such various things as La Monte Young's drone music, Steve Reich's early tape pieces, R. Murray Schafer's environmental works, theatrical Happenings, and various other kinds of improvisational and open-form composition. This course will involve both historical study and performance of this music; each class session will demand that students both discuss assigned music/readings and play some of the pieces under discussion. Graded work will consist entirely of written essays and reports.

The idea of understanding the world in terms of process, and of artistic creation as the business of orchestrating and controlling process, was one of the most important themes within avant-garde and countercultural artworlds in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Consequently, while this class focuses on music, it will also involve the study of theater, dance, film, painting, and sculpture. Assigned readings will include both primary and secondary sources -- pieces written by the artists themselves, the era's leading thinkers, and more recent scholars.

Subject catalog number: MUS-M 502

Class title: J.S. BACH: MAJOR VOCAL WORKS

Class number: 31374

Class meeting time: 11:15A-12:30P   TR

Instructor name: Prof. Daniel R. Melamed

Studies of J.S. Bach's major vocal/instrumental works, including the Magnificat, St. John and St. Matthew Passions, and the Mass in B Minor. 

Topics will include: sources, versions, compositional process, liturgical context, performance practice, theology, parody, lost works, Bach's repertory, and contemporary compositions. Strong emphasis on analysis and critical writing.

Prerequisites: MUS-T 508 and MUS-M 541, or consent of instructor

[3] Graduates moving to New York

On Wednesday, April 20th, 6-8 pm, the IU Alumni Association’s Metro New York Chapter President Karen Stone will be talking with students about “Moving to New York” at the DeVault Alumni Center (just across 17th Street from Assembly Hall). We will have free food and soft drinks! This will be open to all students who are thinking of relocating to New York City for work. Karen will be educating students on the apartment search process. Who would know it could be so difficult to find an apartment on an island that’s only 13.5 miles long? Setting expectations and learning what to look for and things to avoid can help to make a smoother rental process. Karen is here to provide the tools needed to locate, negotiate and move into your first NYC apartment. Email ebehrman@indiana.edu for more details and to RSVP.

[4] Information meeting for Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell and Churchill  Scholarships

Please announce to your best and brightest students and encourage them to attend one of two information meetings on for Tuesday, April 5, 12:30-2 p.m. and 3-4:30 p.m., in the Great Room of the Hutton Honors College, 811 E. Seventh, Indiana University, Bloomington, Ind., about the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, and Churchill scholarships and the IU nomination process for each.  (There will be another information meeting in early September.)  These scholarships support study at one or more British or Irish universities and are among the most prestigious graduate scholarships offered to American students.

The Rhodes, Marshall, Churchill and Mitchell scholarships require candidates to be nominated by their U.S. universities or colleges.  To be considered for nomination by Indiana University in fall 2011, an IU student must submit an application to the IU nominating committee by Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011.  IU interviews will be scheduled for Monday, Sept. 19, in Bloomington. 

The IU committee strongly encourages students who are interested in any of these scholarships to begin working on their applications and talking with potential referees as soon as possible.  The IU application consists of a 750-word personal statement, a 500-word statement on the student’s reasons for studying in the UK and/or Ireland, a 500-word statement on the student’s proposed academic program, three references (at least two of which must be from faculty and at least one of which must be from someone familiar with the student’s extracurricular activity and leadership), and a list of activities and honors.  (The national applications require additional materials and letters of recommendation.)   Students who have any questions regarding the scholarships or possible programs of study, should be encouraged to attend an information meeting or, if they are unable to attend, to contact the chair of the nominating committee, Trevor R. Brown (brownt@indiana.edu), or Edda Callahan, International Affairs, Bryan Hall 104, 855-5021, egcallah@indiana.edu.  It is important that students be working on their applications during the spring and summer, well in advance of the IU deadline.

Below is a brief summary of the key requirements for each scholarship available as of March 2011.  For full and current information, students should review the Web sites.  National deadlines have not all been set for fall 2011.  We include last year’s deadline information, when current information isn’t yet available, to show how quickly the national selection process follows IU’s nominating process.

[3] Declaration of Doctoral Minors (reminder)

We have noticed a trend that many doctoral students are waiting until they are almost done with coursework to formally declare their minors.  This is a very risky thing – until you formally declare a minor, you have no way of knowing whether or not the courses you are taking will count.  Sometimes students take courses that don’t count, spending time and money on what ends up being an extra class.  This is something those students could have avoided by declaring their minors early.

Doctoral students are not eligible to register for their 5th semester of coursework until all minors (or guided electives) are formally declared and approved.  Please see http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/docMinors.shtml for detailed information about minor field requirements and instructions on how to get your minor(s) approved.

If you are a doctoral student who is starting to take (or have already taken) courses that you hope to count towards your minor(s) but have not yet formally declared that minor, you should do so immediately.

Please come by the Music Graduate Office is you have any questions or concerns.  To set up an appointment to speak with me, call 855-1738.

Programs are written thematically, and the writer will be expected to use themes in creative and unexpected ways.  The ideal candidates will be able to write clearly for a general audience. Program segments include historical time capsules and occasional interviews – all formatted to a syndicated program “clock.” Scriptwriters must also post the programs to the website, submit playlist information and relevant photographs/images, create early music blog posts, and participate in programming/planning staff meetings.

Qualifications:
Knowledge of medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque music repertoire; excellent communication and writing skills; and coursework toward a bachelor’s degree in Music is required, (specialty in Early Music preferred).  Familiarity with current trends, performers, and recordings in the early music genre is essential. Familiarity with digital audio recording and editing is helpful.

Submit resume, cover letter and writing samples to LuAnn Johnson, lujohnso@indiana.edu.

Harmonia is a weekly, hour-long radio program about early music distributed to public radio stations across the country. The program and its associated website and related productions (podcast, blog) explore the courts, cathedrals, fairs, and stages of the past, teaching listeners about the music, art, and history of various musical eras. Harmonia is produced in the studios of WFIU. More information at http://indianapublicmedia.org/harmonia/.

Here are the topics for this week’s Music Graduate Office announcements; scroll down for the details about each topic:

[1] Registration for Summer 2011

[2] Auto-W Deadline and Schedule Adjustment for Spring 2011 (reminder)

[3] Workshop Announcement: "All My Life A Musician: The Art, Contexts and Aesthetics of East European Jewish Traditional Musical Performers"

[4] Doctoral Written Qualifying Exams in Summer Session II 2011 (reminder)

The Music Graduate Office web site (http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate) is a good source of information about all matters related to graduate and diploma programs.

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor

________________________________________________________________

[1] Registration for Summer 2011

Registration for summer 2011 will begin on Wednesday, March 23.  Please remember that you will need to submit a Program Planning Sheet to the Music Graduate Office before you will be eligible to register.  You can do this by submitting an online Program Planning Sheet at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/PPS.shtml.   We are accepting Program Planning Sheets for summer registration now.

Summer session II 2011 will take place from Friday, June 17 through Friday, August 12.  Summer session II is the only time that graduate level music courses are offered (we don’t offer any courses during summer session I). 

http://registrar.indiana.edu/scheduleoclasses/prl/soc4115/MUS/index.html is a direct link to the summer Schedule of Classes.

For information about how to prepare for registration, please read the following web page: http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/registration.shtml.  

Don’t forget that master’s and diploma students are required to register in a major ensemble if they register in any course during summer session II.

To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the "Student Self-Service" button on the left side of the page. Next, click on the Go to Student Center link.  From that page, click on My Academics and Grades.  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc.  The Academic Advisement Report has a breakdown of all of your requirements and tracks which requirements you have already completed.  It is an incredibly useful tool to use while you decide what to take in the spring semester.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment to see me by calling 855-1738. You can also email either serbes@indiana.edu or musgrad@indiana.edu with your questions. 

Registration for the fall semester will begin in early April, and the Schedule of Classes for fall is not yet posted.  I will send an email announcement with information about fall registration when we get closer to April.  We are not accepting fall Program Planning Sheets at this time.

All currently registered students will see two “Advising” holds on their records in OneStart.  These holds prevent students from registering for summer and fall until the program planning sheet step is complete.  It does not affect your records in any way other than preventing you from registering, so don’t worry if you see them. 

_______________________________________________________________

[2] Auto-W Deadline and Schedule Adjustment (reminder)

The Auto-W Deadline for spring semester 2011 is Wednesday, March 9. 

The Auto-W deadline is the dividing line between when you may drop a course and be guaranteed a grade of "W" (any time before Wednesday, March 9) and when you may potentially get a grade of "F" for a dropped course, if you are approved to drop a course at all (after March 9).

Before the Auto-W deadline, you can drop a class by using a paper late drop/add form, which you can pick up in the Music Graduate Office (Merrill Hall 011).  After you pick up the form, you will need to gather the signature of the department chair of the course you want to drop, then return the form to the Music Graduate Office for final approval.  The last step after that is that you will take the form to the Registrar’s Office in Franklin Hall room 101.  This step must be completed by 6 pm on March 9 at the latest in order to meet the Auto-W Deadline.

In most semesters, you would be able to use the eDrop system through the Auto-W Deadline, but this semester technical difficulties will prevent that, so any schedule change must be processed in person using the paper late drop/add form.

After the Auto-W deadline, you need the approval of the instructor of the course, the chair of the department that offers the course, and the Music Graduate office in order to drop a class.  You will need a late add/drop form from the Music Graduate Office. 

The main differences in dropping a course after the Auto-W deadline are that the instructor has the option of giving you a grade of "F" for the course if that is the grade you are earning when you request to drop it, and that you need to petition to the Music Graduate Office for permission to drop a course after the Auto-W deadline.  Please note that it is extremely rare to get permission to drop a class after the Auto-W deadline.

Please remember that even when you drop a class you are still responsible for maintaining a full-time course load - at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students (except for some students in their last semester of coursework), at least 9 credits for all diploma and visiting students.

If you want to add a course before or after the Auto-W deadline, you will need to pick up a late drop/add form in the Music Graduate Office and gather various signatures. 

Please make an appointment to speak with me if you have any questions or concerns.  To make an appointment, call 855-1738.

[3] Workshop announcement: "All My Life A Musician: The Art, Contexts and Aesthetics of East European Jewish Traditional Musical Performers"

THE ROBERT A. AND SANDRA S. BORNS JEWISH STUDIES PROGRAM FACULTY-GRADUATE WORKSHOP SERIES, SPRING 2011

Each semester, the Borns Jewish Studies Program is pleased to present a series of workshops for IU faculty and graduate students.  The speakers and topics related to Jewish Studies vary each semester.  Lunch is provided free at these workshops and no reservations are necessary.  We hope you can join us for this spring’s workshop series featuring presentations by the scholars listed below.  If you have questions about any of the workshops please don’t hesitate to contact the Borns Jewish Studies Program.

"All My Life A Musician: The Art, Contexts and Aesthetics of East European Jewish Traditional Musical Performers"

Michael Alpert

Paul Artist-in-Residence, Borns Jewish Studies Program

Indiana University

Friday, March 4

Distinguished Alumni Room

12:00 noon

This paper and illustrated presentation examines the art, lore, life stories and world-views of three immigrant-generation Yiddish traditional performers in New York and Los Angeles who became my teachers, colleagues, friends, and informants in the 1980s-90s. They represent instrumentalists and vocalists, men and women, "religious" and "secular" individuals from Austria-Hungary, Czarist Russia/USSR and Poland, all of whom ultimately made their way to the U.S.  Remarkable individuals whose life sagas span the 20th century and encompass both East Europe and North America, their art and significance for the klezmer/Yiddish Renaissance and for us today will be examined thru the lenses of historical context, gender, Jewishness and interethnicity, as well as the ever-surprising, incongruous and history- bending experiences I was privileged to share with them.

Michael Alpert, a pioneering figure in the renaissance of klezmer music and an internationally known performer, comes to the Borns JSP for the spring 2011 semester as a visiting lecturer and Dorit and Gerald Paul Artist-in-Residence. He has performed and recorded with Brave Old World, Kapelye, Khevrisa, David Krakauer, Theodore Bikel, and has won an Emmy and the Rose D’Or as musical director of the PBS Great Performances special “Itzhak Perlman: In the Fiddler’s House.”  He is teaching a course in Ethnomusicology for musicians (FOLK-F 358  Making Klezmer Music: East European Jewish Music). The Paul  artist-in-residence program provides a unique opportunity to learn directly from a major artist.

Other workshops:

“Challenging Particularity:

Jews as a Lens on Latin American Ethnicity”

Jeffrey Lesser

Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of History,

Tam Institute for Jewish Studies

Emory University

Friday, March 25

12:00 noon

University Club, President’s Room (upstairs)

“This Land is My Land, Your Land is My Land:

Dualing (Dueling) Narratives With(In) Israeli and Palestinian Jerusalem”

Amy Horowitz

Adjunct Assistant Professor, Dept. of Comparative Literature

Lecturer, International Studies Program

The Mershon Center

Friday, April 22

[4] Doctoral Written Qualifying Exams in Summer Session II 2011 (reminder)

Doctoral Students,

If you are planning to take a written qualifying exam during summer session II 2011, you need to sign up in the Music Graduate Office by Friday, March 11, 2011.  You can do this through email (musdoc@indiana.edu) or by stopping by the Music Graduate Office (MU011).  The information we will need is your full name and which exam (or exams) you plan to take during summer session II.

At the moment we are not asking you to reserve a specific date for this summer; we just need to know if you are planning to take a written exam in the summer so that we have time to request the exam questions from your Advisory Committee representatives before the majority of the faculty leaves for the summer.  However, if you would like to reserve a specific date (and you are eligible to schedule a date), you will be able to do so as soon as the summer written exam calendar is posted on March 21.

If you want to take an exam in the summer but are not yet fully qualified to schedule a date (for example, you want to take your major field exam in the summer but your topic proposal is not yet approved), then you can tell us before March 11 that you want to take a summer exam, then reserve a specific date once you are eligible to schedule.

Don't forget that you need to submit the "Request to take Doctoral Written Qualifying Exams” form before you can request to take any qualifying examination.  You can submit the form in the Music Graduate Office or online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/qualifyingExams.shtml#Step1b.  

See http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/qualifyingExams.shtml for information about the qualifying exam process.

Please contact the Music Graduate Office if you have any questions about scheduling summer written exams (Merrill Hall 011, musdoc@indiana.edu, 855-1738).

[1] Auto-W Deadline

The Auto-W Deadline for spring semester 2011 is Wednesday, March 9. 

The Auto-W deadline is the dividing line between when you may drop a course and be guaranteed a grade of "W" (any time before Wednesday, March 9) and when you may potentially get a grade of "F" for a dropped course, if you are approved to drop a course at all (after March 9).

Before the Auto-W deadline, you can drop a class by using the eDrop procedure on OneStart (http://registrar.indiana.edu/~registra/dropadd.shtml#edrop).   

After the Auto-W deadline, you need the approval of the instructor of the course, the chair of the department that offers the course, and the Music Graduate office in order to drop a class.  You do not have the option of using eDrop after the Auto-W deadline, you will need a late add/drop form from the Music Graduate Office. 

The main differences in dropping a course after the Auto-W deadline are that the instructor has the option of giving you a grade of "F" for the course if that is the grade you are earning when you request to drop it, and that you need to petition to the Music Graduate Office for permission to drop a course after the Auto-W deadline.  Please note that it is extremely rare to get permission to drop a class after the Auto-W deadline.

Please remember that even when you drop a class you are still responsible for maintaining a full-time course load - at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students (except for some students in their last semester of coursework), at least 9 credits for all diploma and visiting students.

If you want to add a course after the Auto-W deadline, you will need to pick up a late drop/add form in the Music Graduate Office and gather various signatures.  The eAdd system (like the eDrop system) is not available after March 9.

Please make an appointment to speak with me if you have any questions or concerns.  To make an appointment, call 855-1738.

________________________________________________________________

[2] Registration for Summer and Fall 2011

Registration will start in late March for summer courses and in early April for fall courses.  When the Schedule of Classes for either session is available, I will include it in the weekly email announcement.

All currently registered students will see two “Advising” holds on their records in OneStart.  These holds prevent students from registering for summer and fall until the program planning sheet step is complete.  It does not affect your records in any way other than preventing you from registering, so don’t worry if you see them. 

I will also let you know via the weekly email announcement when it’s time for you to submit your program planning sheet.

[3] Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is a free program brought to you by the Business and Law Schools reaching out to individuals to help file both your federal and state income tax returns.  We can help both residents and nonresidents with their returns.  We are holding a super session on Saturday March 5th, 12-5pm in the Graduate Business School, CG1022.  Please bring any tax forms you have received (W2, 1098-T, etc), your social security card, and picture identification, and we will complete and file your tax return.  Unfortunately at this time, we cannot complete returns with capital gains.  There is no appointment needed -- it is first come, first serve.  If you have any questions, please contact us at IndianaUniversityVITA@gmail.com

[4] MUS-T 545 Introductory Analysis of Music Literature

The Music Theory department asked me to pass on the information that MUS-T 545 will not be offered in summer session II 2011.  There was not sufficient interest to support offering the course this summer.

- You can select more than one instrument, state, or country by pressing the Ctrl key and clicking on the desired criteria

________________________________________________________________

[4] Declaration of Doctoral Minors (reminder)

We have noticed a trend that many doctoral students are waiting until they are almost done with coursework to formally declare their minors.  This is a very risky thing – until you formally declare a minor, you have no way of knowing whether or not the courses you are taking will count.  Sometimes students take courses that don’t count, spending time and money on what ends up being an extra class.  This is something those students could have avoided by declaring their minors early.

Doctoral students are not eligible to register for their 5th semester of coursework until all minors (or guided electives) are formally declared and approved.  Please see http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/docMinors.shtml for detailed information about minor field requirements and instructions on how to get your minor(s) approved.

If you are a doctoral student who is starting to take (or have already taken) courses that you hope to count towards your minor(s) but have not yet formally declared that minor, you should do so immediately.

Please come by the Music Graduate Office is you have any questions or concerns.  To set up an appointment to speak with me, call 855-1738.

_________________________________________________________________

[5] Schedule Adjustment for Spring 2011 (reminder)

To drop or add a class from Tuesday, January 18 through Wednesday, March 9, you can follow the procedure outlined here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/dropadd.shtml#edrop.

[3] Applications for Graduation for May and August 2011 (reminder)

If you are planning to graduate this May or August, you will need to fill out an application for graduation. You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/graduation/gradApp.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011).  The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete. 

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart.  The way you get to your academic advisement report (formerly called the degree progress report) is to log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the “student center” link.  From that page, click on “my academics and grades.”  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. Click on “view my advisement report.”  Near the end of the report there is a line for "Application for Graduation".  If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation.  If the line is not red and says "Satisfied," then we have.

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony.

There are no negative repercussions to applying if you end up graduating later (you’ll just need to submit a new application for graduation if your plans change).  The deadline for applying for May 2011 or August 2011 graduation is February 11, 2011.

[4] Applications for Graduation for May and August 2011 (reminder)

If you are planning to graduate this May or August, you will need to fill out an application for graduation. You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/graduation/gradApp.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011).  The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete. 

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart.  The way you get to your academic advisement report (formerly called the degree progress report) is to log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the “student center” link.  From that page, click on “my academics and grades.”  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. Click on “view my advisement report.”  Near the end of the report there is a line for "Application for Graduation".  If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation.  If the line is not red and says "Satisfied," then we have.

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony.

There are no negative repercussions to applying if you end up graduating later (you’ll just need to submit a new application for graduation if your plans change).  The deadline for applying for May 2011 or August 2011 graduation is February 11, 2011.

Music Graduate Office Announcements addendum:

Graduate students,

I am sorry for the 2nd announcement, but I forgot to include the following in the weekly email announcement this morning:

Doctoral Final Project Public Presentation announcements

The capstone for all doctoral degrees is a substantial research project or composition.  The project includes a written component and a public presentation.  The public presentation is always attended by the members of the student’s Research Committee.  Other members of the Jacobs School of Music community are also welcome to attend the public presentation.  I will be sending announcements about upcoming public presentations to this email list so that interested students can attend.

There are three public presentations scheduled for next week:

Tuesday, February 8, 4:00 pm in M276, Randall Goldberg (PhD student in Musicology) will present a defense of his dissertation: “Clerics and Cavaliers at the Dawn of Modern Music: The Zarlino-Galilei Dispute.”

Thursday, February 10, 4:00 pm in M267, Grace Yu (PhD student in Music Theory) will present a defense of her dissertation: "A Semiotic Interpretation of Liszt's Piano Works in Light of their Extramusical Sources"

[2] Suggestion for doctoral students who are nearing the end of the coursework stage of the degree

I am writing particularly to doctoral students who are in their final semesters of course work and looking towards qualifying exams.  As you plan your last courses and think about your schedule for written and oral qualifying exams, I want to encourage you to be thinking about the proposal you will write for a doctoral final project or dissertation.  In almost every field at the Jacobs School of Music you need to have an approved topic for your final project or dissertation to make progress on your qualifying exams. In those fields you must have completed the proposal and have it approved before you can take a major-field exam or an oral exam (depending on your department).

You will certainly be eager to get your exams done and officially become a candidate for your degree.  The thing that most often delays students is the lack of a complete topic proposal, which sometimes entangles them in time limits.  (Students must pass the oral qualifying exam within one year of taking the first written exam.)  I am writing to urge you to read about what is required, to consult with potential research committee members, and to plan your work on this proposal as you take your last courses. Details are at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/docIndexFP.shtml. Planning ahead and getting a start on your proposal represents the best way to help yourself make uninterrupted progress.

Please get in touch with the Music Graduate Office if you have questions.

Eric Isaacson
Director of Graduate Studies

[7] Artist Diploma Audition (reminder)

School-wide Artist Diploma Auditions for the Spring 2011 semester will be held Wednesday, February 23, 3:30-6:30 PM in Ford Hall. If necessary, additional auditions will be scheduled for Friday, February 25, 2-4 PM in Ford Hall.

Who performs an audition

You may perform an AD audition if you are currently a Jacobs School of Music student in another degree or diploma program and wish to be considered for the AD program beginning summer or fall 2011; this is your admission audition for the program. Before you may perform the School-wide AD audition you must first perform for and be recommended by your department.
 
Please note that current IU students must audition for both their department and the School-wide committee in the spring semester if they wish to begin the AD program in summer or fall 2011; it is not possible for current students to enter provisionally and then perform the School-wide audition in a later semester.

Students who were new to IU and admitted to the Artist Diploma program provisionally for the spring 2011 semester must perform the AD audition in February to finalize their admission.


How to schedule an audition

Current students in other Jacobs School of Music programs should discuss their interest in the AD program with their teachers. They should then come to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) to sign up for the audition and contact the chair of their department no later than Friday, January 21 to arrange a departmental audition. The department will report the result to the Music Graduate Office.

Students who were admitted to the AD program provisionally for spring 2011 also need to come to the Music Graduate Office to sign up for the audition by Friday, January 21, but do not need to arrange a department audition.
 
Students recommended for the School-wide AD audition (and students who were admitted to the AD program provisionally for spring 2011) should then consult with their department chair about appropriate repertory for the School-wide AD audition. Students should prepare a typed program and have it approved and signed by the department chair, then bring the approved program to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) by 4:00 PM on Friday, February 11.


The audition schedule will be posted outside the Music Graduate Office on Wednesday, February 16. Students must provide an accompanist, if needed.
 
Information about the AD program and this School-wide audition (including repertory guidelines) is available at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/diploma-programs/ADAudition.shtml.  
 
If you have questions, please contact the Music Graduate Office (MU011, musgrad@indiana.edu, 855-1738).

Please note: if you graduated in December, your email address will be removed from these announcements by the end of January.

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor

________________________________________________________________

 [1] Schedule Adjustment for Spring 2011

The last day to adjust your schedule through the registration system on OneStart is Friday, January 14 (the last day of the first week of classes). There is an $8.50 per session schedule change fee that is charged when you adjust your schedule on OneStart through Friday, January 14.

Please look at your schedule on OneStart to make sure that your schedule reflects every course that you are attending.  Master’s and diploma students, you need to check to make sure that you are registered in a major ensemble, too.

Friday, January 14, is also the last day to get a 100% refund on a dropped course.  Remember that even if you drop a class you are still responsible for being enrolled full-time (in most cases): at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students, unless you are a doctoral student in your final semester of coursework, and at least 9 credits for diploma and visiting students.   If you drop a class after Friday, January 14, you will not get a full refund of your tuition for that class unless you add a substitute course with the same number of credit hours (2nd week of classes only, an even exchange of fees).

Starting Tuesday, January 18, you will use the eAdd/eDrop system to add or drop a course (instructions are here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/dropadd.shtml#edrop).  The fee for dropping a class starting on January 18 is $23.  There is no fee for adding a course at that point. 

Please note there is a new policy for an “even exchange of fees” for dropping and adding classes in the 2nd week of classes.  To read more about that policy, see this site: http://bursar.indiana.edu/drop_add.php#grad. This new policy applies to the 2nd week of classes only.

 _________________________________________________________________

 [2] Doctoral Information Session (doctoral students nearing the end of coursework)

To all doctoral students:

If you are finishing course work and are approaching exams, we invite you to attend the Music Graduate Office's information session on written and oral qualifying exams, candidacy, and dissertations/final projects. 

This spring semester, the meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 19 at 3:30 pm in the Music Graduate Office conference room (MU011). The meeting will be over by 5 pm.  We hold doctoral information sessions once each fall, spring, and summer session II.

We will provide a packet of useful information and outline the qualifying exam process.  We will also go over dissertation/final project guidelines. 

No sign-up is necessary. We hope to see you there!

You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/graduation/gradApp.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011).  The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete. 

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart.  The way you get to your academic advisement report (formerly called the degree progress report) is to log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the “student center” link.  From that page, click on “my academics and grades.”  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. Click on “view my advisement report.”  Near the end of the report there is a line for "Application for Graduation".  If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation.  If the line is not red and says "Satisfied," then we have.

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony.

There are no negative repercussions to applying if you end up graduating later (you’ll just need to submit a new application for graduation if your plans change).  The deadline for applying for May 2011 or August 2011 graduation is February 11, 2011.

[5] Artist Diploma Audition (reminder)

Who performs an audition

You may perform an AD audition if you are currently a Jacobs School of Music student in another degree or diploma program and wish to be considered for the AD program beginning summer or fall 2011; this is your admission audition for the program. Before you may perform the School-wide AD audition you must first perform for and be recommended by your department.

Please note that current IU students must audition for both their department and the School-wide committee in the spring semester if they wish to begin the AD program in summer or fall 2011; it is not possible for current students to enter provisionally and then perform the School-wide audition in a later semester.


Students who were new to IU and admitted to the Artist Diploma program provisionally for the spring 2011 semester must perform the AD audition in February to finalize their admission.


How to schedule an audition

Current students in other Jacobs School of Music programs should discuss their interest in the AD program with their teachers. They should then come to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) to sign up for the audition and contact the chair of their department no later than Friday, January 21 to arrange a departmental audition. The department will report the result to the Music Graduate Office.

Students who were admitted to the AD program provisionally for spring 2011 also need to come to the Music Graduate Office to sign up for the audition by Friday, January 21, but do not need to arrange a department audition.

Students recommended for the School-wide AD audition (and students who were admitted to the AD program provisionally for spring 2011) should then consult with their department chair about appropriate repertory for the School-wide AD audition. Students should prepare a typed program and have it approved and signed by the department chair, then bring the approved program to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) by 4:00 PM on Friday, February 11.


The audition schedule will be posted outside the Music Graduate Office on Wednesday, February 16. Students must provide an accompanist, if needed.

Music Graduate Office Announcements

Graduate students,

Here are the topics for this week’s Music Graduate Office announcements; scroll down for the details about each topic:

[1] Graduate Entrance Exam retakes (for students who started new graduate degree programs in fall 2010)

[2] Artist Diploma Auditions

[3] Doctoral Styles Exam (all doctoral students in their first spring semester, and other eligible doctoral students)

[4] JSoM Student Travel Funding

[5] Applications for Graduation (reminder)

[6] Registration for spring 2011 (reminder)

The Music Graduate Office web site (http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate) is a good source of information about all matters related to graduate and diploma programs.

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor

Please note: The Music Graduate Office will be closed from Wednesday, December 22 through Tuesday, January 4.  The office will re-open on Wednesday, January 5.

________________________________________________________________

[1] Graduate Entrance Exam retakes (for students  who started graduate degree programs in fall 2010)

If this fall (2010) was your first semester of enrollment in a master’s or doctoral program, you will have one more opportunity to take any Graduate Entrance Exams you did not pass in August (and that opportunity is the week before your second semester of enrollment).  The exam schedule is online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/GEE.shtml#GEEDates.  January 6 and 7, 2011 will be your only opportunity to take these exams again.

You do not need to sign up for the Music History, Aural Theory, and Written Theory exams - just come to the exam with a picture ID.  You do need to sign up for a Sight Singing exam time by contacting the Music Graduate Office between now and Wednesday, January 5.  You can email musgrad@indiana.edu with your full name and program and request a sight singing exam time (we’ll write back with your exam appointment time and location), or you can stop by the office (MU011), or call 855-1738 to sign up for your sight singing time.

You do not need to take any exam which you have already passed or if you are currently enrolled in the review course (although if you get an unsatisfactory grade in a review course this fall semester you can re-take that exam in January 2011).

For your information, the review courses are generally offered on the following schedule:

M541 Early Music History Review - every Fall, every Spring and every Summer Session II

M542 Late Music History Review - every Fall, every Spring and every Summer Session II

T508 Written Theory Review - every Fall and every Summer Session II

T509 Sight Singing Review - every Fall and every Summer Session II of odd numbered years

T511 Aural Music Theory - every Spring and every Summer Session II of even numbered years

______________________________________________________________

[2] Artist Diploma Audition

School-wide Artist Diploma Auditions for the Spring 2011 semester will be held Wednesday, February 23, 3:30-6:30 PM in Ford Hall. If necessary, additional auditions will be scheduled for Friday, February 25, 2-4 PM in Ford Hall.

Who performs an audition

You may perform an AD audition if you are currently a Jacobs School of Music student in another degree or diploma program and wish to be considered for the AD program beginning summer or fall 2011; this is your admission audition for the program. Before you may perform the School-wide AD audition you must first perform for and be recommended by your department.
 
Please note that current IU students must audition for both their department and the School-wide committee in the spring semester if they wish to begin the AD program in summer or fall 2011; it is not possible for current students to enter provisionally and then perform the School-wide audition in a later semester.

Students who were new to IU and admitted to the Artist Diploma program provisionally for the spring 2011 semester must perform the AD audition in February to finalize their admission.

How to schedule an audition

Current students in other Jacobs School of Music programs should discuss their interest in the AD program with their teachers. They should then come to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) to sign up for the audition and contact the chair of their department no later than Friday, January 21 to arrange a departmental audition. The department will report the result to the Music Graduate Office.

Students who were admitted to the AD program provisionally for spring 2011 also need to come to the Music Graduate Office to sign up for the audition by Friday, January 21, but do not need to arrange a department audition.

Students recommended for the School-wide AD audition (and students who were admitted to the AD program provisionally for spring 2011) should then consult with their department chair about appropriate repertory for the School-wide AD audition. Students should prepare a typed program and have it approved and signed by the department chair, then bring the approved program to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) by 4:00 PM on Friday, February 11.
The audition schedule will be posted outside the Music Graduate Office on Wednesday, February 16. Students must provide an accompanist, if needed.
 
Information about the AD program and this School-wide audition (including repertory guidelines) is available at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/diploma-programs/ADAudition.shtml.  
 
If you have questions, please contact the Music Graduate Office (MU011, musgrad@indiana.edu, 855-1738).

________________________________________________________________ 

[3] Doctoral Styles Exam


The date of the doctoral styles examination is approaching, and we are writing to remind you about the exam and the requirement. The styles exam will be offered for the only time this spring on Saturday, January 29, 2011, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. in Sweeney Hall (M015).  

--Doctoral students who began their program in the summer or fall of 2010 or spring 2011 are required to take the exam on Saturday, January 29, 2011.  Please sign up online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/stylesExamSignUpForm.shtml or in person in the Music Graduate Office by Friday, January 14.  Please note that January 29 will be your only opportunity to take the styles exam.  If you have already taken MUS-T 545 with a grade of “B” or higher, you will not need to take the exam.
 
--Doctoral students who have been given permission to take the exam in spring 2011 (because they did not pass the exam in spring 2010), please sign up online at  http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/stylesExamSignUpForm.shtml or in person in the Music Graduate Office by Friday, January 14. If you are unsure about whether you were given permission to retake the exam, please email or make an appointment right away to speak with Sara Erbes or Prof. Isaacson.
 
Students who have a conflict with a religious observance on the exam date should contact Prof. Eric Isaacson,  Director of Graduate Studies, right away to arrange an alternative time (you can email musicdgs@indiana.edu).
 
Information on the exam is available at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/styles.shtml.  Samples of old exams are on reserve in the Music Library, including the complete exam from Spring 2002, with recorded examples.
  
Please get in touch with the Music Graduate Office if you have questions.

________________________________________________________________

[4] JSoM Student Travel Funding

The Jacobs School of Music has a limited amount of funding available to provide modest travel grants to Graduate and Undergraduate Jacobs students who are traveling to present a paper at a professional conference or attend the performance of a composition.  For information on qualifications and how to apply, visit the Music Graduate Office web site (http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate) and click the "JSoM Student Travel Assistance" link.

________________________________________________________________

[5] Applications for Graduation (reminder)

If you are planning to graduate this December, you will need to fill out an application for graduation by the end of the semester (at the latest). You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/graduation/gradApp.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011).  The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete.

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart.  The way you get to your academic advisement report (formerly called the degree progress report) is to log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the “student center” link.  From that page, click on “my academics and grades.”  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. Click on “view my advisement report.”  Near the end of the report there is a line for "Application for Graduation".  If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation.  If the line is not red and says "Satisfied," then we have.

You are required to apply for graduation even if you do not plan to go through the commencement ceremony.  If you apply for December graduation this late in the semester your name will not be in the Commencement program, but you will still have the option of attending the ceremony if you’d like.

If you plan to graduate in May or August 2011, you can apply for graduation now using the same online form.  It’s good to get this step out of the way, and there are no negative repercussions to applying if you end up graduating later (you’ll just need to submit a new application for graduation if your plans change).  The deadline for applying for May 2011 or August 2011 graduation is February 11, 2011.

________________________________________________________________________

[6] Registration for spring 2011 (reminder)                                        

Registration for spring semester 2011 is happening now.  Please remember that you will need to submit a Program Planning Sheet to the Music Graduate Office before you will be eligible to register.  You can do this by submitting an online Program Planning Sheet at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/PPS.shtml.   We are still accepting Program Planning Sheets for spring registration, and we process program planning sheets in the order in which they are submitted.  You must submit your Program Planning Sheet by Wednesday, December 22 in order to definitely get it back in time to register before late fees are charged (late fees begin on Friday, January 7).

Spring semester 2011 will take place from Monday, January 10 through Friday, May 6.

[1] Credential file (for students applying for jobs at the college or university level) – correction to last week’s announcement

Students applying for jobs, particularly at the college or university level, are encouraged to take advantage of services provided by IU ED Careers (http://education.indiana.edu/carsrv/COASCredentialsFiles/tabid/4613/Default.aspx - a correction to last week’s site link). 

Located in the W.W. Wright Education Building Room 1000, this office allows any student in the university to create a credential file for a small fee. The credential file can include letters of recommendations and a student's resume or curriculum vitae. When a student applies for a job, the office can be asked to send a copy of the credentials to the prospective employer. This saves the trouble of tracking down individual faculty members for each application; it also spares faculty members the burden of sending the same letter many times, sometimes on short notice. (Of course there may be times when an individualized letter is more appropriate, and some faculty prefer to provide them for each position applied for.)

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor

________________________________________________________________________

[1] Registration for spring 2011 (reminder)

Registration for spring semester 2011 begins today (Thursday, October 21).  Please remember that you will need to submit a Program Planning Sheet to the Music Graduate Office before you will be eligible to register.  You can do this by submitting an online Program Planning Sheet at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/PPS.shtml.   We are accepting Program Planning Sheets for spring registration now.  We process program planning sheets in the order in which they are submitted, but please be aware it may take several days to get a reply because of the number of students currently submitting their forms.

Spring semester 2011 will take place from Monday, January 10 through Friday, May 6. 

http://registrar.indiana.edu/scheduleoclasses/prl/soc4112/index.html is a direct link to the spring Schedule of Classes.

______________________________________________________________________

[2] Auto-W Deadline for fall 2010

The Auto-W Deadline for fall semester 2010 is Wednesday, October 27. 

The Auto-W deadline is the dividing line between when you may drop a course and be guaranteed a grade of "W" (any time before Wednesday, October 27) and when you may potentially get a grade of "F" for a dropped course, if you are approved to drop a course at all (after October 27).

Before the Auto-W deadline, you can drop a class by using the eDrop procedure on OneStart (http://registrar.indiana.edu/~registra/dropadd.shtml#edrop).   

After the Auto-W deadline, you need the approval of the instructor of the course, the chair of the department that offers the course, and the Music Graduate office in order to drop a class.  You do not have the option of using eDrop after the Auto-W deadline, you will need a late add/drop form from the Music Graduate Office. 

The main differences in dropping a course after the Auto-W deadline are that the instructor has the option of giving you a grade of "F" for the course if that is the grade you are earning when you request to drop it, and that you need to petition to the Music Graduate Office for permission to drop a course after the Auto-W deadline.  Please note that it is extremely rare to get permission to drop a class after the Auto-W deadline.

Please remember that even when you drop a class you are still responsible for maintaining a full-time course load - at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students (except for some students in their last semester of coursework), at least 9 credits for all diploma and visiting students.

If you want to add a course after the Auto-W deadline, you will need to pick up a late drop/add form in the Music Graduate Office and gather various signatures.  The eAdd system (like the eDrop system) is not available after October 27.

Please make an appointment to speak with me if you have any questions or concerns.  To make an appointment, call 855-1738.

______________________________________________________________________

[3] Music Theory Courses

The Music Theory department asked me to announce that MUS-T 545 Introductory Analysis of Music Literature will not be offered in summer session II 2011.  MUS-T 545 is the course that doctoral students can take to fulfill the Doctoral Styles Requirement (http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/styles.shtml has more details about that requirement).

The Music Theory department does plan to offer MUS-T 551 in summer session II 2011 (this course has not been offered in the summer in several years).

If you have questions about theory department offerings, please direct them to the Music Theory office in M225H or email mustheor@indiana.edu.

[4] Doctoral Final Project Public Presentation announcements

The capstone for all doctoral degrees is a substantial research project or composition.  The project includes a written component and a public presentation.  The public presentation is always attended by the members of the student’s Research Committee.  Other members of the Jacobs School of Music community are also welcome to attend the public presentation.  I will be sending announcements about upcoming public presentations to this email list so that interested students can attend. 

There is one public presentation scheduled for next week.

Monday, October 25, 6:00 pm in M271, Andrew Tucker (DM student in Brass Pedagogy) will present a lecture on his final project topic: “Teacher Resource Guide for the College-Level Brass Quintet.”

[3] All students who started new graduate programs in fall 2010 – A few reminders

There have been a few questions recently from new students that I thought many of you who just started here this fall may want to have answered.

1.  Registration

In order to register, follow the steps outlined earlier in this email.  You do not need to get an advisor's signature from the person who advised you during orientation week.  I will look over your program planning sheet after you submit the online Program Planning Sheet and I will approve that as your advisor.  You will not be eligible to register until after you submit your Program Planning Sheet and it is approved.

Be sure to complete the Immunization Compliance Form on OneStart if you haven't already done so.  To find the form on OneStart (www.OneStart.iu.edu), click the Services tab, then the Student Self-Service link on the sidebar, then locate the Services & Information section.  Then, click the Immunization Compliance link. The Registrar’s office will block your registration if you do not complete this form.  http://registrar.indiana.edu/immunization.shtml has detailed information about this policy.

Students who have not yet submitted a final official transcript showing the completion date of your last program will not be eligible to register until that transcript is received in the Music Graduate Office.  I emailed the students who have not yet submitted that transcript a few weeks ago.  For those of you who are sending transcripts, I will email you once we receive your transcript.

2.  Language requirements

If you are in a program that has a foreign language requirement, and you believe that you have already fulfilled all or part of that requirement with coursework from an earlier degree, check on your academic advisement report to see whether that has been updated to your records.  (Instructions for getting to your academic advisement report are given in the registration section of this email).  If your academic advisement report does not show that the requirement is complete, but you think it should, then please contact the Music Graduate Office.  It is possible that it just hasn't been updated yet, but it's also possible that what you did in the past won't count, so you need to check now to confirm what you need to complete.

3.  Graduate Entrance Exams

(For master’s and doctoral students.  The Graduate Entrance Exams and review courses are not required for diploma and visiting students.)

If this fall (2010) was your first semester of enrollment in a master’s or doctoral program, you will have one more opportunity to take any Graduate Entrance Exams you did not pass in August (and that opportunity is the week before your second semester of enrollment).  The exam schedule is online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/GEE.shtml#GEEDates.   January 6 and 7, 2011 will be your only opportunity to take these exams again.

You do not need to sign up for the Music History, Aural Theory, and Written Theory exams - just come to the exam with a picture ID.  You do need to sign up for a Sight Singing exam time by contacting the Music Graduate Office at the end of the fall semester or on Wednesday, January

5.  I will send out an email announcement when we start scheduling Sight Singing exam times at the end of the semester.

You do not need to take any exam you have already passed or if you are currently enrolled in the review course (although if you get an unsatisfactory grade in a review course this fall semester you can re-take that exam, if you are eligible, in January 2011).

For your information, the review courses are generally offered on the following schedule:

M541 Early Music History Review - every Fall, every Spring, and every Summer Session II

M542 Late Music History Review - every Fall, every Spring, and every Summer Session II

T508 Written Theory Review - every Fall and every Summer Session II

T509 Sight Singing Review - every Fall and every Summer Session II of odd numbered years

T511 Aural Music Theory - every Spring and every Summer Session II of even numbered years

Remember that the Music Graduate Office website www.music.indiana.edu/graduate is a great source of information about program requirements.

________________________________________________________________________

[4] Course announcements for spring 2011

The Music Graduate Office invited faculty to submit short course announcements for this e-mail, for you to use as you decide what to register for in the spring 2011 semester.  Not all of these courses will count for every degree or program.

MUS-M 502 Mozart Operas (12017)
Tuesday and Thursday, 10:10 - 11:25 AM
Prof. Daniel R. Melamed

We will examine some of Mozart's mature operas, focusing on textual and musical analysis and on the context of Mozart's works. We will look mainly at four compositions, pairing each with a piece by a contemporary: Die Entführung aus dem Serail and Salieri's Der Rauchfangkehrer; Le nozze di Figaro and Martin y Soler's Una cosa rara; Don Giovanni and the setting by Gazzaniga; Die Zauberflöte and the multi-author Der Stein der Weisen; and briefly at Cosí fan tutte.

We will spend much of our time on close textual and musical analysis, aiming to understand conventions of the time and how Mozart's music works within them. Other topics will include German and Italian poetry and the construction of librettos; aria forms and types; the organization of ensembles; analytical approaches; characters and Mozart's singers; the history, genesis and revision of individual works; topic and "rhythmic gesture"; and film versions of each of the operas we study.

The syllabus from 2009 is available at http://mypage.iu.edu/~dmelamed/M502-Mozart-2009.htm.

---------------------------------------

MUS-M 502 Georg Philipp Telemann (15682)
Tuesday and Thursday, 1- 2:15 PM
Prof. Daniel R. Melamed

A survey of musical style and genre in the middle of the eighteenth century seen through the music of the most famous and successful composer of his time, Georg Philipp Telemann. We'll look at vocal and instrumental music and at aspects of musical life, concentrating on analysis for insight into the stylistic language and conventions of the time.

We will spend a week or two each on opera, oratorio, passion settings (poetic and gospel), church cantatas, motets and other sacred music, ouverture suites, concertos, and sonatas. We will get an overview of Telemann's output and an  understanding of the range of professional and amateur music making in the eighteenth century.

Music Graduate Office Announcements

Graduate students,

Here are the topics for this week’s Music Graduate Office announcements; scroll down for the details about each topic:

[1] Schedule of Classes for Spring 2011

[2] All graduate students who started a new graduate program in fall 2010 (doctoral or diploma) and who did not attend New Student Orientation – Your copy of the Jacobs School of Music Bulletin

[3] MUS-E 635 College Music Teaching

[4] Korean Language Proficiency Exam

[5] Schedule Adjustment (reminder)

The Music Graduate Office web site (http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate) is a good source of information about all matters related to graduate and diploma programs.

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor

________________________________________________________________________

[1] Schedule of Classes for Spring 2011

The spring 2011 Schedule of Classes is now posted on the Registrar’s office web site.  http://registrar.indiana.edu/scheduleoclasses/prl/soc4112/MUS/index.html is a direct link to the schedule.

We are not yet accepting program planning sheets for spring registration because there still are corrections that need to be made to the schedule, but will begin to accept them around October 14.  I will send an email announcement when it’s time to start submitting program planning sheets. 

However, you can take a preliminary look at the spring schedule now and start thinking about which courses you would like to take in the spring (if you plan to register). 

Most students already have a block on their registration (called a negative service indicator) that says “academic advising.”  That block on your registration will be there until your program planning sheet is approved.  That negative service indicator for academic advising does not affect anything other than registration.

______________________________________________________________________

[2] All graduate students who started a new graduate program in fall 2010 (doctoral or diploma) and who did not attend New Student Orientation – Your copy of the Jacobs School of Music Bulletin

If you started a new graduate program in fall 2010 but were not required to attend New Student Orientation in August (for example, those of you who started a diploma program in the fall after being here as a master’s student recently), you need to stop by the Music Graduate Office (MU011) to pick up your copy of the 2009-2011 Jacobs School of Music Bulletin.  The 2009-2011 version of the bulletin has the requirements specific to your program for those starting new programs in fall 2010.  This will be your only opportunity to get a paper copy of the bulletin.  The bulletin is also available online at http://www.indiana.edu/~bulletin/iub/music/2009-2011/.

The Music Graduate office is open from 9 am to noon and from 1 to 4 pm Monday through Friday.

______________________________________________________________________

[3] MUS-E 635 College Music Teaching

The Music Education department asked us to inform students who are planning to register in MUS-E 635 College Music Teaching that it is offered in spring 2011 but will not be offered again until summer session II 2012.  In the past, the course was offered every spring, but it will not be offered in spring 2012.

________________________________________________________________

[4] Korean Language Proficiency Exam

Students needing to take the Korean Language Proficiency Test during Fall 2010 need to visit the Korean Language Homepage at http://www.indiana.edu/~korean/, and fill out the Exam Request Form to sign up for the test to be given on:

Friday, October 22, 2:30 – 4:30

Ballantine Hall, Room 330

Online registration must be completed by October 15, 2010 at 5:00 p.m.

Late registrations will not be accepted.

After students submit the online form, they will be contacted by EALC to confirm their registration for the exam.

Priority for testing times will be given to students who are graduating in May 2010.

Questions regarding the Korean Proficiency Exam should be directed to Professor Hyo Sang Lee at korean@indiana.edu.

This exam is for students who need to prove reading knowledge of Korean for a PhD degree or for the DM in Early Music.  It is not a placement exam.

________________________________________________________________

[5] Schedule Adjustment (reminder)

Schedule adjustment is now processed through the eDrop/eAdd system (instructions are here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/dropadd.shtml#edrop). 

Please look at your schedule on OneStart to make sure that your schedule reflects every course that you are attending.  Master’s and diploma students, you need to check to make sure that you are registered in a major ensemble, too.

Remember that even if you drop a class you are still responsible for being enrolled full-time (in most cases): at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students, unless you are a master’s or doctoral student in your final semester of coursework, and at least 9 credits for diploma and visiting students.   

The fee for dropping a class is $23.  There is no fee for adding a course at this point.

[2] Doctoral students nearing the end of coursework – suggestion for you

I am writing particularly to doctoral students who are in their final semesters of course work and looking towards qualifying exams.  As you plan your last courses and think about your schedule for written and oral qualifying exams, I want to encourage you to be thinking about the proposal you will write for a doctoral final project or dissertation.  In almost every field at the Jacobs School of Music you need to have an approved topic for your final project or dissertation to make progress on your qualifying exams. In those fields you must have completed the proposal and have it approved before you can take a major-field exam or an oral exam (depending on your department).

You will certainly be eager to get your exams done and officially become a candidate for your degree.  The thing that most often delays students is the lack of a complete topic proposal, which sometimes entangles them in time limits.  (Students must pass the oral qualifying exam within one year of taking the first written exam.)  I am writing to urge you to read about what is required, to consult with potential research committee members, and to plan your work on this proposal as you take your last courses. Details are at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/docIndexFP.shtml, organized by program. Planning ahead and getting a start on your proposal represents the best way to help yourself make uninterrupted progress.

Please get in touch with the Music Graduate Office if you have questions.

Eric Isaacson
Director of Graduate Studies

[3] Applications for Graduation (reminder)

If you are planning to graduate this December, you will need to fill out an application for graduation. You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/graduation/gradApp.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011).  The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete.

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart.  The way you get to your academic advisement report (formerly called the degree progress report) is to log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the “student center” link.  From that page, click on “my academics and grades.”  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. Click on “view my advisement report.”  Near the end of the report there is a line for "Application for Graduation".  If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation.  If the line is not red and says "Satisfied," then we have.

School-wide Artist Diploma Auditions for the Fall 2010 semester will be held Wednesday, October 27, 3:30-6 PM in Ford Hall. If necessary, additional auditions will be scheduled for Friday, October 29 (same time and location).

Who performs an audition

You may perform an AD audition if you are currently a Jacobs School of Music student in another degree or diploma program and wish to be considered for the AD program beginning spring 2011; this is your admission audition for the program. Before you may perform the School-wide AD audition you must first perform for and be recommended by your department.
 
Please note that current IU students must audition for both their department and the School-wide committee in the fall semester if they wish to begin the AD program in spring 2011; it is not possible for current students to enter provisionally and then perform the School-wide audition in a later semester.

Students who were new to IU and admitted to the Artist Diploma program provisionally for the fall 2010 semester must perform the AD audition this October to finalize their admission.

How to schedule an audition

Current students in other Jacobs School of Music programs should discuss their interest in the AD program with their teachers. They should then come to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) to sign up for the audition and contact the chair of their department no later than Friday, September 24 to arrange a departmental audition. The department will report the result to the Music Graduate Office.

Students who were admitted to the AD program provisionally for fall 2010 also need to come to the Music Graduate Office to sign up for the audition by Friday, September 24, but do not need to arrange a department audition.
 
Students recommended for the School-wide AD audition (and students who were admitted to the AD program provisionally for fall 2010) should then consult with their department chair about appropriate repertory for the School-wide AD audition. Students should prepare a typed program and have it approved and signed by the department chair, then bring the approved program to the Music Graduate Office (MU011) by 4:00 PM on Friday, October 15.

 
The audition schedule will be posted outside the Music Graduate Office on Wednesday, October 20. Students must provide an accompanist, if needed.
 
Information about the AD program and this School-wide audition (including repertory guidelines) is available at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/diploma-programs/ADAudition.shtml.

[3] Declaration of doctoral minors

We have noticed a trend that many doctoral students are waiting until they are almost done with coursework to formally declare their minors.  This is a very risky thing – until you formally declare a minor, you have no way of knowing whether or not the courses you are taking will count.  Sometimes students take courses that don’t count, spending time and money on what ends up being an extra class.  This is something those students could have avoided by declaring their minors early.

In the future, doctoral students will not be eligible to register for their 5th semester of coursework until all minors (or guided electives) are formally declared and approved.  Please see http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/docMinors.shtml for detailed information about minor field requirements and instructions on how to get your minor approved.

If you are a doctoral student who is starting to take (or have already taken) courses that you hope to count towards your minor(s) but have not yet formally declared that minor, you should do so immediately.

________________________________________________________________________

[1] Schedule Adjustment

The last day to adjust your schedule through the registration system on OneStart is Friday, September 3 (the last day of the first week of classes). There is an $8.50 per session schedule change fee that is charged when you adjust your schedule on OneStart through Friday, September 3.

Please look at your schedule on OneStart to make sure that your schedule reflects every course that you are attending.  Master’s and diploma students, you need to check to make sure that you are registered in a major ensemble, too.

Friday, September 3, is also the last day to get a 100% refund on a dropped course.  Remember that even if you drop a class you are still responsible for being enrolled full-time (in most cases): at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students, unless you are a master’s or doctoral student in your final semester of coursework, and at least 9 credits for diploma and visiting students.   If you drop a class after Friday, September 3, you will not get a full refund of your tuition for that class unless you add a substitute course with the same number of credit hours (2nd week of classes only, an even exchange of fees).

Starting Tuesday, September 7, you will use the eAdd/eDrop system to add or drop a course (instructions are here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/dropadd.shtml#edrop).  The fee for dropping a class starting on September 7 is $23.  There is no fee for adding a course at that point. 

Please note there is a new policy for an “even exchange of fees” for dropping and adding classes in the 2nd week of classes that is starting this fall.  To read more about that policy, see this site: http://bursar.indiana.edu/drop_add.php#even. This new policy applies to the 2nd week of classes only.

You can submit the application online at http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/graduation/gradApp.shtml or you can submit the paper form in the Music Graduate Office (MU011).  The form is very short (one page) and should only take a few minutes to complete.

If you do not remember whether you have already applied for graduation, you can check your academic advisement report on OneStart.  The way you get to your academic advisement report (formerly called the degree progress report) is to log on the OneStart (www.onestart.iu.edu), then click on the “student center” link.  From that page, click on “my academics and grades.”  That brings you to a page that includes a link to your advisement report, class schedule, grades, etc. Click on “view my advisement report.”  Near the end of the report there is a line for "Application for Graduation".  If the line is red and says "Not Satisfied", we have not yet received an application for graduation.  If the line is not red and says "Satisfied," then we have.

________________________________________________________________________

[1] All graduate students: Minor field qualifying exam in Music Theory

Doctoral Students:

If you are planning to take the minor field qualifying exam in Music Theory this fall (Saturday, September 25), you need to sign up in the Music Graduate office by Friday, September 10.  Please review http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/doctoral/qualifyingExams.shtml for information on qualifying exam sign up procedures. 

This is for doctoral students who have are in the qualifying exam stage of their degree (after coursework is complete) and who have completed a music theory minor.

If you are sending an email to sign up (to musdoc@indiana.edu), please include your full name and a list of the three Music Theory minor field courses you want to be tested on during the exam.  You can also sign up in person in the Music Graduate Office (MU011).

The only time the exam will be offered this fall is on Saturday, September 25, 2010, 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in Simon 242.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

______________________________________________________________________

[2] All graduate students: Schedule Adjustment

The last day to adjust your schedule through the registration system on OneStart is Friday, September 3 (the last day of the first week of classes). There is an $8.50 per session schedule change fee that is charged (after the 48 hour grade period immediately following your initial registration) when you adjust your schedule on OneStart through Friday, September 3.

Please look at your schedule on OneStart to make sure that your schedule reflects every course that you are attending.  Master’s and diploma students, you need to check to make sure that you are registered in a major ensemble, too.

Friday, September 3, is also the last day to get a 100% refund on a dropped course.  Remember that even if you drop a class you are still responsible for being enrolled full-time (in most cases): at least 8 credits for master’s and doctoral students, unless you are a master’s or doctoral student in your final semester of coursework, and at least 9 credits for diploma and visiting students.   If you drop a class after Friday, September 4, you will not get a full refund of your tuition for that class.

Starting Tuesday, September 7, you will use the eAdd/eDrop system to add or drop a course.  I’ll send out more details at that time.  The fees for dropping and adding classes are different after September 3.  Please note there is a new policy for an “even exchange of fees” for dropping and adding classes in the 2nd week of classes that is starting this fall.  To read more about that policy, see this site: http://bursar.indiana.edu/drop_add.php#grad. This new policy applies to the 2nd week of classes only.

[1] All graduate students: New Jacobs School of Music web site

The Jacobs School of Music launched its new web site this morning.  You can view it at http://www.music.indiana.edu/.  The Music Graduate Office web site has also changed substantially (our new home page is http://www.music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/index.shtml).  We have all of the same information available, but the organization has changed.

There will be some growing pains as the new site is updated, so please be patient with us.  There were problems with the online program planning sheet this morning, but while the formatting still looks a little odd it should function correctly now.  Please let us know if you have trouble finding any information.

________________________________________________________________________

[2] All graduate students: New fellowship competition - foreign language students Middle East/Islamic languages

IU has received new grant funding from the U.S. Department of Education that will allow us to make several additional academic year FLAS (Foreign Language and Area Studies) fellowship awards to IU graduate students.

Eligibility requirements:               

1) U.S. citizen or permanent resident

2) Enrollment during both semesters of the 2010-11 academic year in one of the following languages: Arabic, Modern Hebrew, Kurmanji Kurdish, Sorani Kurdish, Turkish, Persian, Urdu, Bengali, Dari, Pashto

Terms of award:

Stipend of $15,000, tuition fee remission, and enrollment in the graduate student health insurance program. Note that late receipt of a FLAS award will be counted against student's eligibility for other types of financial aid already processed by the IU Office of Student Financial Assistance and may result in a reduction of other aid previously offered for the 2010-11 academic year.

If you applied to another IU Center for FLAS in one of the above languages during the February 2010 competition (Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center, Center for the Study of Global Change, or African Studies Program), it is possible for us to reactivate your existing application without your having to complete a new one. Please let us know by e-mail if you would like us to do this.

Date: July, 2010

Re: Information meeting for Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell and Churchill Scholarships

Please announce to your best and brightest students and encourage them to attend one of two information sessions on Friday, Sept. 3, 2010, 12:30-1:30 p.m. and 2-3 p.m., in the Great Room of the Hutton Honors College, 811 E. Seventh about the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, and Churchill scholarships and the IU nomination process for each. These scholarships support study at one or more British or Irish universities and are among the most prestigious graduate scholarships offered to American students.

The Rhodes, Marshall, Churchill and Mitchell scholarships require candidates to be nominated by their U.S. universities or colleges. To be considered for nomination by Indiana University in fall 2010, an IU student must submit an application to the IU nominating committee by Monday, Sept. 13, 2010. The IU committee strongly encourages students who are interested in any of these scholarships to begin working on their applications and talking with potential referees as soon as possible. The IU application consists of a 750-word personal statement, a 500-word statement on the student’s reasons for studying in the UK and/or Ireland, a 500-word statement on the student’s proposed academic program, two references, and a list of activities and honors.

(The national applications require additional materials and letters of recommendation.) Students who have any questions regarding the scholarships or possible programs of study, should be encouraged to attend an information meeting or, if they are unable to attend, to contact the chair of the nominating committee, Trevor R. Brown (brownt@indiana.edu), or Edda Callahan, International Affairs, Bryan Hall 104, 855-5021, egcallah@indiana.edu.

14 July 2010: To all graduate students

Music Graduate Office

Graduate students,

Here are the topics for this week’s Music Graduate Office announcements; scroll down for the details about each topic:

[1] All graduate students: Auto-W Deadline
[2] All graduate students: Registration for Fall Semester 2010 (reminder)

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor

The Music Graduate Office web site (http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate) is a good source of information about all matters related to graduate and diploma programs.
________________________________________________________________________

[1] All graduate students: Auto-W Deadline (summer session II)

The Auto-W Deadline for summer session II 2010 is Tuesday, July 20.

The Auto-W deadline is the dividing line between when you may drop a course and be guaranteed a grade of "W" (any time before Tuesday, July 20) and when you may potentially get a grade of "F" for a dropped course, if you are approved to drop a course at all (after July 20).

Before the Auto-W deadline, you can drop a class by using the eDrop procedure on OneStart (http://registrar.indiana.edu/~registra/dropadd.shtml#edrop).

After the Auto-W deadline, you need the approval of the instructor of the course, the chair of the department that offers the course, and the Music Graduate office in order to drop a class. You do not have the option of using eDrop after the Auto-W deadline, you will need a late add/drop form from the Music Graduate Office.

The main differences in dropping a course after the Auto-W deadline are that the instructor has the option of giving you a grade of "F" for the course if that is the grade you are earning when you request to drop it, and that you need to petition to the Music Graduate Office for permission to drop a course after the Auto-W deadline. Please note that it is extremely rare to get permission to drop a class after the Auto-W deadline.

If you want to add a course after the Auto-W deadline, you will need to pick up a late drop/add form in the Music Graduate Office and gather various signatures. The eAdd system (like the eDrop system) is not available after July 20.

Please make an appointment to speak with me if you have any questions or concerns. To make an appointment, call 855-1738.

Woodlawn Ave., Bloomington, Indiana 47405-7104, josmith@indiana.edu, or fax 812-855-4266. If you have questions before submitting materials, please email josmith@indiana.edu.

THE PROPOSAL-WRITING CONSULTANT/TRAINER is one of two graduate assistants who work directly with fellow graduate students in the GradGrants Center, a graduate student service located in the Wells Library-BL, sponsored by The University Graduate School, and available to graduate students of all IU campuses. The two consultants handle the day-to-day operation of the GradGrants Center and share training responsibilities (i.e., presenting or enlisting speakers for workshops, scheduling rooms, preparing visual aids). Our consultants assist students in their search for external funding sources and are available to work one-on-one with graduate students in discussing and critiquing their grant proposals.

QUALIFICATIONS: Required are successful proposal-writing experience, editing skills, teaching experience or experience in planning and presenting special-interest training programs, and the ability and personality to interact well with the public. A one-year commitment to the position is required.

Music Graduate Office Announcements

Graduate students,

Congratulations to all of our May 2010 graduates! Just so you know, students who graduate in May or August will have their email addresses removed from this email list in September.

Here are the topics for this week’s Music Graduate Office announcements; scroll down for the details about each topic:

[1] Part-time position in the Music Graduate Office
[2] All graduate students: Registration for Summer Session II 2010 (reminder)
[3] All graduate students: Registration for Fall Semester 2010 (reminder)

Sara Erbes, Academic Advisor
________________________________________________________________________

[1] Part-time position in the Music Graduate Office

The Music Graduate Office is looking to fill the part-time position of Doctoral Clerk. The Doctoral Clerk works with the Director of Graduate Studies on qualifying examinations and final projects/dissertations. He or she handles the scheduling of written and oral exams and defenses; the preparation and circulation of written exams; the paperwork for essays, final projects, and dissertations; and correspondence with students and faculty members.

The time commitment is ca. 15-20 hours a week, and the schedule is flexible within the office's working hours (8 AM to 5 PM). Certain times of the year will require more hours, other times (especially summer) fewer. Some aspects of the work (including e-mail correspondence) may be done from home; other parts require time in the office.

Strong computer skills are needed, including e-mail, the use of an Access database, and the updating of Web pages. Discretion and the ability to communicate well both verbally and in writing are important. Familiarity with the Jacobs School of Music is desirable.

We can consider a doctoral candidate (one who has passed all qualifying exams) but not other current students in the Jacobs School of Music. The position might be particularly appropriate for the spouse or partner of a graduate student or for a recent graduate. We hope for a minimum one- to two-year commitment.

The work of the Graduate Office (including matters that the Doctoral Clerk deals with) can be seen at http://www.music.indiana.edu/graduate/.

Those interested may apply by e-mail to Prof. Eric Isaacson, Director of Graduate Studies, Jacobs School of Music, at musicdgs@indiana.edu. The letter should describe relevant education and work experience, computer skills, availability, and familiarity with the School, and should include names and contact information for two personal or professional references. All applications received by Friday, 4 June 2010, will be considered.
