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: Seven terms of Performance are required for the B.A. in Music Pre-Music Therapy track. The student may elect one more term of MUS 314.x, which requires 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, concert attendance, Performance Class attendance and performance, and an end-of-term jury are waived.

PERFORMANCE#3: In addition to lessons on the primary instrument, students must take lessons on piano, guitar, and voice with an emphasis on playing in a music therapy setting.

NOTE: Students in the pre-music therapy track are encouraged to complete a self-designed minor in psychology.
