Announcements for All Students

[1] Course Announcement - MUS-M 513 Topics in Latin American Music: History and Performance of Latin American Music

The department would like to announce a course, MUS-M 513 Topics in Latin American Music: History and Performance of Latin American Music.

The purpose of the course is to trace the development of musical traditions in the Caribbean and Latin America and develop proficiency in the playing and understanding of these different styles/genres. We will also promote discussion of issues regarding the formation musical styles that sprang forth out of cultural, socio-political and at times, economic forces.

Course materials are selected from the repertoire of art, folk and popular music traditions and analysis of 20th and 21st century developments such as mass media, the Internet, the recording industry, the convergence of African, Middle Eastern, Indigenous and European styles. The course will cover music from Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Trinidad/Tobago, Jamaica, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Peru.

Please note that this course does not count towards the master's degree music history requirement or doctoral minor in music history, but can count towards Other Required Credits or potentially major field electives (if approved by your department chairperson). It can also count towards the diploma program music course requirement (for PD and AD students).

[3] Registration for fall 2018

Fall registration started on Monday, April 2. We are currently accepting program planning sheets for fall.  The Fall Schedule of Classes is here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4188/MUS/index.shtml.

Here is a link to registration instructions: http://music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/registration.shtml#Program%20Planning%20Sheets.

There is a separate program planning sheet for each degree category - be sure to use the program planning sheet that matches your program:

The reason that we have separate program planning sheets is that we've asked you to supply some additional information about which requirement category each course you plan to register for falls into. For example, if you are a master's student enrolling in a music history course, you can choose (from a drop-down menu) that the music history course is for the music history requirement. If you are a doctoral student enrolling in a class for your first minor, you will choose the minor category, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the program planning sheet.

You will normally get a response to your program planning sheet within 24 hours (not including weekends), but during high volume times, such as the beginning of fall registration, it can take several days. If you haven't received a response within 5 days, please let us know.

Before you fill out your program planning sheet, you should look at your Academic Advisement Report to see which requirements you still need to fulfill. To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on to One.IU. In the Seach, Click, Done! box at the top of the page, type "Student Center (SIS)." Click on the Student Center icon in the search results. 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 summer session or fall semester.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment by calling 812-855-1738. You can also email musgrad@indiana.edu or serbes@indiana.edu with your questions (but please call if you want to make an appointment, we don't set up appointment times by email).

All currently registered students will see two "Advising" holds on their records in One.IU. 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] Schedule Adjustment for Summer 2018 and Auto-W Deadline for summer courses that started on June 4

Any schedule changes for summer 2018 need to take place through the eAdd/eDrop system. Details on how to use that system are here: https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/register/dropping-adding/late-drop-add.html

The deadline for a 50% refund of tuition for classes that started on June 4 and go through July 13 and for second eight week classes (which go from June 4 to July 27) is Sunday, June 17. After that, there will be no refund for dropped classes for those sessions.

The Auto-W Deadline for classes that last from June 4 to July 13 is Monday, June 25.

The Auto-W Deadline for classes that last from June 4 to July 27 is Tuesday, July 3.

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 the Auto-W Deadline) 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 the Auto-W Deadline).

Before the Auto-W deadline, you can drop a class by using the eDrop procedure on One.IU (https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/doc/register/e-drop.pdf).   

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. 

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

For fall schedule adjustment, you still use the normal registration system and are still charged an $8.50 schedule adjustment fee for any changes made more than two days after your intial registration until the end of the first week of fall classes.

[5] Electronic Submission of Doctoral Final Project, Piano Essay, MME, and MM Composition Thesis final copies

This message is for doctoral, MME, and MM Composition students who plan to graduate in Summer or Fall 2018.

Doctoral students in most areas are being encouraged to submit the final copy of their dissertation, doctoral final protect, or doctoral piano essay electronically, rather than submit multiple bound printed copies. Students will still have the option of submitting bound copies if they prefer, but we expect the savings in cost (potentially several hundred dollars) and time (potentially several weeks) will motivate most students to use electronic submission. MME and MM Composition students are also encouraged to submit their thesis final copy electronically.

Electronically submitted documents will be catalogued in IUCAT and available either through ProQuest (PhD and DME dissertations) or IU Scholarworks (DM Final Projects, DM Composition Dissertations, DM Piano Essays, MME and MM Composition theses).  Doctoral documents distributed to the research committee for formal review before the public presentation (e.g., defense) will still be in print form. 

The Music Graduate Office will be examining documents closely for compliance with JSOM style guidelines. Use the Style Guidelines page (link below) to ensure you are following all style guidelines. There is a checklist that students may use to ensure compliance before submitting the document for formal research committee review on that page. The final version of a document that is submitted through the Music Graduate Office (i.e., all but PhD dissertations, which are submitted through the University Graduate School) will be checked for compliance with these guidelines and returned for correction if problems are found. Depending on the timing, this could delay a student's graduation by a term.

[2] Registration for Summer 2018 - Procedure change

Even though the majority of music classes won't start until June 4, we are now in a registration period for summer in which any schedule changes need to take place through the eAdd/eDrop system. Details on how to use that system are here: https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/register/dropping-adding/late-drop-add.html

If you are making changes to a class that hasn't started yet, you will not be charged any schedule adjustment fees (this is unusual and only applies to summer classes). You may see a late registration fee ($60) or a late drop fee ($23) if you enroll for your first class now or drop a class, but those fees will be refunded to your account within one week.

If you have not yet submitted a program planning sheet for summer and want to enroll in a summer course, then you need to complete that step before you register.

The waitlist for summer classes no longer exists. So if you are on a waitlist for a summer class, you will never get into that class from that waitlist.

Late registration fees will be charged for students enrolling in their first class starting on June 4. And late drop fees will also be charged (and stay charged) for any dropped classes after June 4.

Let us know if you have questions about which refund period a class is in.

For fall schedule adjustment, you still use the normal registration system and are still charged an $8.50 schedule adjustment fee for any changes made more than two days after your intial registration up until the end of the first week of the fall semester.

[3] MUS-X 2 Piano Accompanying in Summer 2018

If you are a piano major enrolled for summer (or are interested in enrolling for summer) and would like to enroll in MUS-X 2, please contact Prof. Anne Epperson right away at: epp303@indiana.edu. Non-piano majors who are experienced piano players are also welcome to contact Prof. Epperson and, if there are openings, can audition to potentially be authorized to enroll.

A limited number of students enrolling in MUS-X 2 will get a 1 credit scholarship (which they can use to pay for another course during the summer session). There are only a limited number of scholarships, so tell Prof. Epperson if you are interested in the summer ensemble scholarship as soon as possible.

MUS-X 2 will last from June 4 to July 13.

[4] Job openings for student tutors in Writing Tutorial Services

Dear Graduate Students,

Writing Tutorial Services (WTS), the IUB writing center, is seeking graduate student tutors for fall 2018. WTS graduate tutors work a minimum of 10 hours per week and are paid $13.50 per hour.

As WTS Director, I hope to hire graduate students from across the disciplines who are strong writers and who will be friendly and approachable when working with other writers. Because students who visit WTS are a widely diverse group-in terms of ethnicity, nationality, language, religion, race, and gender-I encourage applications from graduate students who reflect this diversity.

To apply, please email the following documents to javogt@indiana.edu:
• A cover letter describing your teaching/tutoring experience and listing the disciplines for which you would be comfortable tutoring writing
• A resume or CV
• A brief (3-4 page) writing sample

If you have questions or need more information, please email javogt@indiana.edu or call WTS at 812-855-6738. Thank you, jav

Jo Ann Vogt
WTS Director

[5] Summer grades and grade point average

Please note that the policy for semester grade point average (that you must earn a grade point average of 3.0 or higher) applies for the summer session just as it does for fall or spring. That means that if you are taking only one class, you need to earn a grade of "B" or higher in order to get that minimum grade point average, even if your degree requirement allows a lower passing grade. Not meeting this minimum grade point average can have serious consequences, so pay attention to this policy. Every course you take in the summer counts towards your summer grade point average (even if the classes meet in different summer session periods).

Details on Academic Standing policies are here: http://bulletins.iu.edu/iub/music/2017-2018/regulations/standing-graduate/index.shtml.

[1] MUS-X 2 Piano Accompanying in Summer 2018

If you are a piano major enrolled for summer (or are interested in enrolling for summer) and would like to enroll in MUS-X 2, please contact Prof. Anne Epperson right away at: epp303@indiana.edu. Non-piano majors who are experienced piano players are also welcome to contact Prof. Epperson and, if there are openings, can audition to potentially be authorized to enroll.

A limited number of students enrolling in MUS-X 2 will get a 1 credit scholarship (which they can use to pay for another course during the summer session). There are only a limited number of scholarships, so tell Prof. Epperson if you are interested in the summer ensemble scholarship as soon as possible.

MUS-X 2 will last from June 4 to July 13.

[2] Job openings for student tutors in Writing Tutorial Services

Dear Graduate Students,

Writing Tutorial Services (WTS), the IUB writing center, is seeking graduate student tutors for fall 2018. WTS graduate tutors work a minimum of 10 hours per week and are paid $13.50 per hour.

As WTS Director, I hope to hire graduate students from across the disciplines who are strong writers and who will be friendly and approachable when working with other writers. Because students who visit WTS are a widely diverse group-in terms of ethnicity, nationality, language, religion, race, and gender-I encourage applications from graduate students who reflect this diversity.

To apply, please email the following documents to javogt@indiana.edu:
• A cover letter describing your teaching/tutoring experience and listing the disciplines for which you would be comfortable tutoring writing
• A resume or CV
• A brief (3-4 page) writing sample

If you have questions or need more information, please email javogt@indiana.edu or call WTS at 812-855-6738. Thank you, jav

Jo Ann Vogt
WTS Director

[3] Registration for summer and fall 2018

Summer registration started Wednesday, March 21.  We are currently  accepting program planning sheets for summer.

The Summer Schedule of Classes is here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4185/MUS/index.shtml

Here is a link to registration instructions: http://music.indiana.edu/degrees/graduate-diploma/registration/registration.shtml#Program%20Planning%20Sheets.

Fall registration started on Monday, April 2. We are currently accepting program planning sheet for fall.  The Fall Schedule of Classes is here: http://registrar.indiana.edu/browser/soc4188/MUS/index.shtml.

There is a separate program planning sheet for each degree category - be sure to use the program planning sheet that matches your program:

The reason that we have separate program planning sheets is that we've asked you to supply some additional information about which requirement category each course you plan to register for falls into. For example, if you are a master's student enrolling in a music history course, you can choose (from a drop-down menu) that the music history course is for the music history requirement. If you are a doctoral student enrolling in a class for your first minor, you will choose the minor category, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the program planning sheet.

You will normally get a response to your program planning sheet within 24 hours (not including weekends), but during high volume times, such as the beginning of fall registration, it can take several days. If you haven't received a response within 5 days, please let us know.

Before you fill out your program planning sheet, you should look at your Academic Advisement Report to see which requirements you still need to fulfill. To view your Academic Advisement Report, log on to One.IU. In the Seach, Click, Done! box at the top of the page, type "Student Center (SIS)." Click on the Student Center icon in the search results. 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 summer session or fall semester.

If you have any questions about degree requirements, please make an appointment by calling 812-855-1738. You can also email musgrad@indiana.edu or serbes@indiana.edu with your questions (but please call if you want to make an appointment, we don't set up appointment times by email).

All currently registered students will see two "Advising" holds on their records in One.IU. 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] Registration for Summer 2018 - Procedure change

Even though the majority of music classes won't start until June 4, we are now in a registration period for summer in which any schedule changes need to take place through the eAdd/eDrop system. Details on how to use that system are here: https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/register/dropping-adding/late-drop-add.html

If you are making changes to a class that hasn't started yet, you will not be charged any schedule adjustment fees (this is unusual and only applies to summer classes). You may see a late registration fee ($60) or a late drop fee ($23) if you enroll for your first class now or drop a class, but those fees will be refunded to your account within one week.

If you have not yet submitted a program planning sheet for summer and want to enroll in a summer course, then you need to complete that step before you register.

The waitlist for summer classes no longer exists. So if you are on a waitlist for a summer class, you will never get into that class from that waitlist.

Late registration fees will be charged for students enrolling in their first class starting on June 4. And late drop fees will also be charged (and stay charged) for any dropped classes after June 4.

Let us know if you have questions about which refund period a class is in.

For fall schedule adjustment, you still use the normal registration system and are still charged an $8.50 schedule adjustment fee for any changes made more than two days after your intial registration up until the end of the first week of the fall semester.

[5] Volunteer opportunity for free voice lessons

This message is from Prof. Brian Horne. Please contact him directly.

Professor Brian Horne is looking for volunteers to take voice lessons through the graduate voice pedagogy class. Students would receive eight free voice lessons beginning the week of May 14 and ending June 18. There is no fee and no credit will be granted. Interested parties should contact Dr. Horne at blhorne@indiana.edu as soon as possible.
