LinC+ requirements of 11 units: F1, F2, F3 (1-2 terms), F4; six of the eight M and U categories (M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, U1 and U2), of which at least one must be a U course. For music students, the M6 must be in an art form outside of music.

PERFORMANCE #1: The unit includes a major lesson, large ensemble, optional secondary lessons and ensembles, concert attendance, weekly Tuesday morning Performance Class attendance and a Performance Class performance (except for 1st term with private instructor), and an end-of-term Jury. See a music advisor for the two required Lesson Scheduling forms.

PERFORMANCE #2: Six terms of Performance are required for the B.A. in Music major. The student may elect two more terms of MUS 314.x and MUS 315.x, which require at least one set of lessons in the major concentration – with a full fee charge per set of lessons – and participation in a large ensemble appropriate to the major lesson concentration. In MUS 314.x and 315.x, concert attendance, Performance Class attendance and performance, and end-of-term jury are waived.
