The College of Staten Island offers the following undergraduate degrees in Music:

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) with concentrations in

  • Classical Performance, Literature, and Theory
  • Music Technology
  • Jazz Studies and Performance

Music (BA)

The Bachelor of Arts in Music degree provides basic training in all areas of music and serves as a foundation for graduate study of any specialized aspect of the field. It requires no fewer than four consecutive semesters of courses in music theory, musicianship, and music history. All sequences begin in the fall. Prospective majors must plan their programs so that they are prepared to begin major courses in a fall semester at least two years before they plan to graduate. It is preferable to begin the 200-level major courses three years before graduation to allow time in the senior year for advanced electives.

Students must complete or exempt through examination MUS 120 and MUS 123 or 124 and compete and pass MUS 125 (spring semester) before taking 200-level theory, musicianship, or music history classes. Prospective majors must earn a minimum grade of B- in all three courses or proficiency exams in order to declare the Music major. Once you have taken or been exempted from these courses you may file your Music major declaration with the Registrar. The declaration form is available at www.csi.cuny.edu/registrar/importantforms

In order to declare the BA in Music students must complete the following:

  • ENG 111, ENG 151, COR 100, PED 190 before entering the first semester of 200-level Music major courses, preferably within the first 36 credits.
  • ENG 151 is the pre or corequisite for Music History I-IV. This course satisfies the General Education requirement of a second level writing course.
  • Students must complete or exempt through examination MUS 120 and MUS 123 or 124, and compete and pass MUS 125 (spring semester) before taking 200-level theory, musicianship, or music history classes. Prospective majors must earn a minimum grade of B- in all three courses or proficiency exams in order to declare the Music major.
  • Piano skills are critical for all musicians. All potential Music majors must demonstrate elementary proficiency at the piano before declaring the major. Students should plan to fulfill this requirement no later than the Spring semester in which they take MUS 125. Students entering CSI with limited keyboard background may take MUS 123 Piano I and, if necessary, MUS 124 Piano II (both of which are offered every semester) as a pre-major requirement, or they make take private lessons in piano at their own expense. The Music Program has a list of recommended piano teachers.
  • All Music majors are expected to have a working knowledge of a music notation software program such as Sibelius (the program used in the CSI Music Lab) or Finale before they enter the major. Basic Sibelius skills are taught in MUS 125 Introduction to Music Theory. Transfer students and other students who do not take MUS 125 are required to acquire basic knowledge of a music software program by the end of MUS 225 Theory I.

In addition to ENG 111, ENG 151, COR 100, and PED 190, students must complete an ENH 200-level course in order to register for any music courses at the 300-level and above.

The BA in Music offers students a strong general music education. All undergraduate music majors include training performance, musicianship, music theory, and music history, in the context of a strong liberal-arts degree program. It provides basic training in all areas of music and services as foundation for graduation study of an aspect of the field. Many other subjects, including composition, jazz studies, and music technology, are available as electives.

A student must earn a grade of C or higher in all prerequisite Music courses in order to advance to the next core course in the sequence of required courses. Exceptionally, a student who receives a D may be given permission to continue in the sequence if recommended by both the instructor and the full-time Music faculty.

Ensemble Requirement

Participation in all ensembles is contingent on an audition and permission of a full-time Music faculty member. All music students are required to participate in a minimum of four semesters of a performing ensemble. Enrollment in a performing ensemble course each semester is encouraged. Ensemble courses taken after the fourth semester may count as electives, but will not apply toward the credits required for the BA in Music.

Private Instruction in Voice and Instrument

The college funds private lessons for a limited number of qualified Music majors in the B.A. program. Students who are pursuing a major in Music, who earn a 2.7 GPA in required pre-major or core Music courses, and who are making appropriate progress toward fulfilling the degree requirements are eligible for enrollment in college-funded private instruction for credit. Admission into private instruction is determined by audition, which must take place prior to registration in MUS 181. In order to qualify for private lessons, students will be asked to perform major and minor scales and arpeggios, two prepared pieces, and will be asked to read a short musical composition at sight. In the BA, private lessons are elective. Students enrolled in private lessons must maintain a 2.7 cumulative average in core music courses. For each semester of private lessons, the student must be enrolled in at least six credits of music classes and must be enrolled in an Ensemble. These courses (MUS 181, MUS 191, MUS 281, MUS 291, MUS 381, MUS 391, MUS 481, MUS 491)—which may not be repeated—are non-liberal arts and sciences courses and should be taken in sequence. Performance Workshop (MUS 180, MUS 190, MUS 280, MUS 290, MUS 380, MUS 390, MUS 480, MUS 490) is co-requisite with private lessons. Students who are enrolled in college-funded lessons must satisfy the following criteria in order to remain eligible on a semester-by-semester basis:

  1. earn an average GPA of 2.7 in pre-major or core Music courses;
  2. receive a grade of B in the juried examination that takes place at the end of each semester;
  3. make satisfactory progress towards completing the B.A. in Music through:
    1. full-time enrollment status at CSI (12 credits or more for each semester of lessons);
    2. enrollment in 6 or more credits of Music courses in each semester of study;
  4. be enrolled in an ensemble for each semester of enrollment in private lessons.

Enrollment in Chamber Music and Other Small Ensembles

The college funds enrollment in chamber music, small jazz ensembles, and other small ensembles for a limited number of qualified Music majors. Students who are pursuing a major in Music and who are making appropriate progress toward fulfilling the degree requirements are eligible for enrollment in college-funded private instruction for credit. Admission into small ensembles is determined by audition, which must take place prior to registration in MUS 115.

Students enrolled in chamber music, small jazz ensembles and small ensembles must maintain a 2.7 cumulative average in academic music classes (theory, history, and musicianship). For each semester of private lessons, the student must be enrolled in at least six credits of music classes. (Some flexibility is possible for first- and last-semester students.) Students may receive credit for a maximum of eight semesters of private lessons. These courses (MUS 115, MUS 116, MUS 215, MUS 216) are non-liberal arts and sciences courses and should be taken in sequence. MUS 216 may be repeated for credit. Students who are enrolled in college-funded small ensembles must satisfy the following criteria in order to remain eligible on a semester-by-semester basis:

  1. rehearse with the ensemble every week;
  2. give a public performance, which serves as a final examination, at the end of each semester of enrollment;
  3. maintain full-time enrollment status at CSI (12 credits or more for each semester of ensemble);
  4. make satisfactory progress toward completing the Music degree.

Junior and Senior Project Courses

Courses numbered MUS 383, MUS 394, MUS 483, and MUS 494 are project courses. They are available to Music majors who wish to perform a full-length public recital, write a large-scale composition, or complete a research project in music theory or music history of significant scope and length. A full-time music faculty member and/or applied music instructor must supervise any of these endeavors.

Students who wish to enroll in MUS 383 Junior Project in Performance and MUS 483 Senior Project in Performance must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. be enrolled in private lessons with a CSI applied music professor for no fewer than two consecutive semesters prior to registering for a junior or senior recital;
  2. earn a grade of B+ or higher every semester before enrollment in junior or senior recital;
  3. at the end of the semester before the recital, perform before a jury of Music faculty members a 20-minute audition of music in diverse styles representative of the repertoire to be performed on the recital.

At the request of the student, when the grade point average warrants the appellation, these courses may be designated as Junior Honors Project or Senior Honors Project. Juniors who hope to enroll in either MUS 383 or MUS 393 must have completed at least 25 credits of the general education requirement, including ENG 151, COR 100, and PED 190.

Honors

To graduate with honors in Music a student must have a 3.5 grade point average in music courses and must complete an honors thesis in composition or performance under the supervision of a full-time faculty member.

Liberal Arts and Sciences Requirement

For the BA in Music, at least 90 credits must be in liberal arts and sciences courses. For the BS in Music, at least 60 credits must be in liberal arts and sciences courses. Music performance courses are non-liberal arts and sciences.

Music (BS)

The B.S. degree in Music is intended for musically and academically talented students who have serious ambitions in the field of music performance, teaching, scholarship, or related fields. It provides intensive instruction in the student's major instrument or voice, as well as solid training in music theory, history, technology, and a broad, liberal arts education. Admission to this program is conditional on passing an audition demonstrating a high level of skill in performance.

Students accepted into this program generally begin the degree in their second year in the Music major, after the completion of MUS 204, MUS 224, MUS 226 and MUS 244, and MUS 258 for student's wishing to pursue the Music Technology concentration. In addition to performance classes, the degree requires no fewer than four semesters of advanced courses (300-level and above). All sequences begin in the Fall. Prospective majors must plan their programs so that they are prepared to begin major courses in a Fall semester at least three years before they plan to graduate to allow time in the senior year for advanced electives and the completion of a Senior Project.

All Music students at CSI begin in the Bachelor of Arts degree.  During the second year as a declared music major, students must complete MUS 203, MUS 223, MUS 225, and MUS 243 and must earn a GPA of 2.7 in these Music courses, and must have a GPA of 2.5 overall in order to enter the BS degree program.

Applications for the B.S. in Music with a Music Technology concentration will be accepted during the student's second year as a declared music major.  Eligibility for the B.S. with a Music Tech concentration will be determined based on a special interview/audition.  Students who wish to apply for this program must also submit a digital audio recording no more than 15 minutes in length of examples of the student's most recent work in the field of Music Technology.

Entry into the B.S. concentrations in Performance, Literature, and Theory (Classical or Jazz) requires application and a special audition, usually taken during the second year in the B.A. Auditions for entrance into the B.S. degree program are held in the Spring semester of the second year, usually in March.

To schedule an audition, please call the Department of Performing and Creative Arts at (718) 982-2520 at least three weeks prior to the audition date. In preparing for the audition, we suggest that you choose two contrasting selections that best demonstrate your technique and musicianship. These selections should be chosen from the standard classical repertoire and should represent different styles and periods. Memorization is recommended, but not required. Singers should prepare at least one work in a language other than English. All auditioners should also bring copies of the music to the audition to give to the accompanists that will be provided for you. All who audition should be able to read musical notation comfortably.

For students who wish to pursue a concentration in Classical Performance, French or Italian is recommended.

In addition to ENG 111, ENG 151, COR 100, and PED 190, students must complete an ENH 200-level course in order to register for any music courses at the 300-level and above. Please refer to the section in the Undergraduate Catalog on general education requirements for approved course lists and complete details.

Private Instruction in Voice and Instrument

Four semesters of private instruction in voice or an instrument are required for the B.S. degree. Students who are pursuing a major in Music, who earn a 2.7 GPA in required pre-major or core Music courses, who earn a 2.5 GPA overall, and who are making appropriate progress toward fulfilling the degree requirements are eligible for enrollment in college-funded private instruction for credit. Admission into private instruction is determined by audition, which must take place prior to registration in MUS 181.
