Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make changes to the courses I am registered in?
Is it possible to drop core music courses?
You must remain registered in all the core music courses for which you are eligible (theory, history and skills) in order to continue in your lessons.
What must I do if I am not accepted into the ensemble for which I preregistered?
It is your responsibility to ensure that your registration is correct. You need to use LORIS to drop the ensemble in which you are preregistered and add the ensemble in which you will be participating.
Can a student be enrolled in more than one ensemble?
First-year students must have completed their keyboard facility requirement in order to be eligible to participate in a second ensemble. There are separate course numbers for second ensembles. Enrolment in a second ensemble is also at the discretion of the studio instructor.
Is it possible for a first-year student to do chamber music?
Yes. But only by audition, and if your keyboard facility requirement has been met.
What should I do if I am having trouble with course material?
You should see your instructor as soon as possible, preferably during the instructor’s office hours.
What procedure should I follow if I think that I need a tutor?
Please see peer tutoring policy.
How do I apply for music scholarships?
When can I book flights home or make end-of-term vacation plans?
Students are strongly urged not to make any commitments (i.e. vacation) during the examination period. Students are required to be available for examinations during the entire examination period in each semester that they are registered. The final exam schedule is posted in mid-October for fall semester and in mid-February for winter semester. Note that the final jury schedule will not be posted until March. As your jury is your performance studio final exam, please do not make any commitments during the exam period.
