About the Program

Students enter college with various experience and backgrounds in music. Furthermore, they take music courses with a variety of goals in mind. Consequently, while several of our offerings are open to everyone, passing our Music Placement Test (MPT) or a standardized audition is required for more advanced classes. Most music classes require that a student have some skill with music notation. Music 106 is designed to provide this theoretical background. In addition, a potential music major or minor must be able to listen analytically to classical music. Music 101 serves this purpose. The Music Placement Test is advised for those who feel they have sufficient background and therefore don’t need to take preliminary courses.
There are a variety of skills and abilities required of the music major who transfers from College of Marin to complete upper division work elsewhere. Consequently, coursework at the Kentfield Campus has been divided into as many component parts as possible to enable students to work at their level in each area. The following chart illustrates each component part of the music major package at various levels. It is not necessary for students to be at the same level in each area. In fact, it is to students’ advantage to be ahead a semester or two in piano and ear training. However, since it is to students’ disadvantage to get ahead in theory without developing the listening, physical, and analytical skills, it is urged that the theory components be taken after all other components at the same level, if not taken concurrently.
