Center for the Performing and Cinematic Arts / BOYER COLLEGE OF MUSIC AND DANCE

About the Program

The master's degree in Classical Guitar Performance develops expertise beyond baccalaureate-level achievement. Students specialize in the study of the major instrument and take courses outside the major area that support advanced musical and academic development. The Department of Instrumental Studies provides the potential professional performer and/or teacher with the finest instrumental training within the context of a comprehensive university. Students study privately with professional artist-teachers and enjoy opportunities for performance in numerous large and chamber music ensembles.

Time Limit for Degree Completion: 6 years

Campus Location: Main

Full-Time/Part-Time Status: The degree can be completed on a full- or part-time basis.

Interdisciplinary Study: With approval of the major advisor, students may elect to take up to 6 graduate credits outside the field of music.

Accreditation: This degree program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).

Areas of Specialization: Study focuses on performance of the major instrument, the solo and ensemble literature of the instrument, and academic support areas in music.

Job Prospects: The program prepares musicians for either professional activity or doctoral study.

Non-Matriculated Student Policy: Non-matriculated students may enroll in selected courses in music with permission, but may not take applied lessons until they have been fully admitted and matriculated.

Financing Opportunities: Boyer College of Music and Dance offers a number of assistantships and academic internships to matriculated graduate students. Full awards carry a cash stipend plus full tuition remission for the Fall and Spring terms. Partial awards also are available in values of 1/4 or 1/2 of a full award. Duties for assistantships and internships vary, but typically include teaching, tutoring, classroom assistance, research, artistic performance, and/or direct service related to academic programs.

Other: Due to the large number of applications for admission and the competitive nature of its music programs, the College admits only a portion of its applicants. In addition to the general admissions credentials required of all Temple University graduate applicants, specialized admission criteria (i.e., auditions, portfolios, interviews, recommendations, departmental term papers, and standardized examinations) are very heavily weighted in admission decisions of the Boyer College of Music and Dance. Graduate applicants may be rejected for admission for failing to obtain the required level of proficiency in any one area of the specialized admission criteria regardless of the level of success in meeting the Temple University general admission criteria. In addition to the level of success demonstrated in the above-mentioned criteria, a final admission factor is the College's Optimum Enrollment Policy. This Policy may preclude the admission of any student who meets the minimum requirements.

Additional Requirements:

All degree credits are to be earned at Temple University.

Diagnostic Examinations:
All entering Master of Music students are required to take Diagnostic Examinations in Harmony, Counterpoint, Aural Skills, and Music History prior to the first term of graduate study. The purpose of these examinations is to determine weaknesses in undergraduate preparation. Depending on the examination results, students may be required to take one or more remedial courses. In these instances, the remedial courses will be graded on a "Credit / No Credit" basis and the official university transcript will indicate "CR" (for "Credit," meaning that the deficiency has been satisfied) or "NC" (for "No Credit," meaning that the deficiency has not been satisfied). Students must have a "B-" or better average in any remedial course or section thereof to earn the grade of "Credit" and to satisfy the requirement. Students who earn a grade of "NC" (that is, having a class average below "B-") must retake that course or section until an average of "B-" or higher is achieved and a grade of "CR" is recorded on the official university transcript. Remedial courses are offered for undergraduate credit only, and may not count toward graduate degree requirements.

  1. All entering M.M. students must take the Diagnostic Examination in Harmony, Counterpoint, and Aural Skills prior to the first term of graduate study unless conditions for exemption have been met (see below). Students may take the test only once, and if they do not pass the test or any portion thereof, they must enroll in the remedial course(s) during their first term of study. Depending on which section(s) of the examination are failed, the examiners will stipulate which sections of remedial coursework the student must take. The courses are:
    MUST 5001Diatonic Harm. Review1
    MUST 5002Chromatic Harm. Review1
    MUST 5003Counterpoint Review1
    MUST 5004Grad Aural Theory Review3
  2. All entering M.M. students are required to take the Diagnostic Examination in Music History prior to registering for their first term of graduate study unless conditions for exemption have been met (see below). If the student is unsuccessful in passing any portion of the Music History examination, the student may select one of two options:
    1. Option A entails registering to take MUST 5005 Remedial Studies in Music History for 1 to 5 undergraduate credits, with 1 credit assigned to each of the following five periods: Renaissance, Baroque, Classic, Romantic, and Twentieth Century. Students may register for a maximum of 3 credits of MUST 5005 in any term; thus, it is possible to extend the remediation over two terms.
    2. Option B entails the student's studying independently and retaking the failed sections of the examination at the end of the first term of study. Students may retake the examination only once, and if any section is failed a second time, they must take the assigned remedial sections in their second term of study.
  3. Conditions for Exemption: The requirement to take the Diagnostic Examination in any area is waived only for graduates of the Boyer College of Music and Dance who
    1. matriculate and enroll in the term immediately following completion of all undergraduate degree requirements; and
    2. received grades of "B-" or better in every undergraduate course taken in each individual examination area to be waived.

Professional Development Policy:
In addition to taking the required subjects for their degrees, all students in the Boyer College of Music and Dance are obligated to serve in a number of capacities in order to enrich their academic and musical expertise. Boyer College of Music and Dance believes that such experiences give impetus to successful professional careers. Among the duties that may be required are conducting laboratory classes; tutoring; teaching private lessons; coaching; participating in the distribution and inventory control of Temple University-owned musical instruments and instructional materials; participating in ensembles; accompanying; performing at admissions and open house events; supervising performance classes; and engaging in other academic activities.

Performing Ensembles:

  1. Touring: All students in touring performing ensembles are required to participate in all scheduled tours. These tours, usually one or two weeks in length, often take place immediately after termination of terms. Students must arrange their schedules to accommodate this requirement.
  2. Participation: Master's degree candidates in wind, brass, and percussion instruments must be available for ensemble assignments at the discretion of the department chair, including participation beyond curricular requirements.
  3. Non-Credit Participation: With special permission, graduate students for whom there is no ensemble requirement, or where previous ensemble credits exceed the graduation requirement, may participate in choral and instrumental ensembles without cost, with prior permission from the ensemble director, the department chair, and the Associate Dean.

Independent Study Courses:
Independent study courses provide a special opportunity for graduate students to work in a highly individualized setting with one or more faculty members. All such study must receive the approval of the faculty member providing the instruction, the students' major advisor, and the Associate Dean. Approval will be granted only after the student has presented a detailed description of the intended independent study project. Approval of independent study projects will be granted only for students whose academic and musical record provides substantial support for the benefits of this type of study. In no case may more than 20% of a graduate student's curriculum be taken as independent study. Private lessons beyond those required in the curriculum are not an appropriate form of independent study.

Acceptable English:
All students, including those for whom English is not the native language, are expected to present all written work in acceptable English. No double standard exists to differentiate students on the basis of proficiency in the use of the English language. Students are also responsible for becoming familiar with the College's statement on plagiarism and academic honesty.

Graduate Private Lesson Policy:
Weekly one-hour private lessons are provided for all matriculated master's and doctoral performance majors in good standing, provided at least three additional credits of programmatically required graduate-level study are taken simultaneously. A $250 per term lesson fee (subject to change without notice) is charged for all private lessons. Tuition remission may not be used to cover the private lesson fee.

Private applied lessons beyond the four-term requirement currently in effect for graduate performance students may be extended with the permission of the jury, department chair, and the Associate Dean or Dean of the Boyer College of Music and Dance.

Recital Extension:
Students withdrawing from the recital requirement during the recital term will receive an Incomplete and must register for extended study for non-degree credit (MUSC 5000 Recital Extension for 2 credits). Recital Extension must be taken each term until the recital has been presented. This course will be offered on a "Credit/No Credit" basis only. Upon satisfactory completion of the recital, the Incomplete for the recital course will be replaced by a letter grade and MUSC 5000 Recital Extension will be issued a grade of "CR." Credit derived from Recital Extension will not be counted toward degree requirements.

  1. Recital Extension Fees: Tuition for these additional terms of private study will be the cost of 2 graduate credits plus a $400 Recital Extension fee. Graduate assistantships and other forms of University-sponsored financial aid do not cover the Recital Extension fee.
  2. Exceptions to Recital Extension:
    1. Students who perform their recitals during the first three weeks of the Spring term are not required to register for Recital Extension that term.
    2. Students who register for Recital Extension during the Summer may perform their recitals during the first three weeks of the Fall term. However, if the student does not take Recital Extension during the Summer, s/he may not present the recital in the Fall term, regardless of the date, without also registering for the Fall term of Recital Extension.
  3. Failure to Present Recital: The degree status of students who are unable to present a recital after one term of Recital Extension will be reviewed by the Associate Dean and the major advisor, who, in consultation with the major teacher and department, will determine whether or not the student may continue in the program. Inability to present the recital after one term of Recital Extension may be grounds for dismissal from the degree program for failing to maintain reasonable academic progress.

Incompletes:
All incomplete grades and keyboard proficiencies must be fulfilled by the first day of the month in which the student expects to graduate.

Culminating Events:
Comprehensive Final Project:
Students must maintain a list of all literature, including solos, etudes, and excerpts, performed each term in lessons, using a printed form provided by the department. During the final term of study, students are required to submit a three-part written project. Part 1 includes lists of music studied/performed in all four terms of lessons; the lists must be signed by the studio teacher. Part 2 includes program notes or background information for any two of the pieces listed in Part 1. The notes should be approximately 500 words each and must contain at least three recognized references, such as Baker’s and New Grove. Any online resource must be documented and recognized as appropriate and authoritative. Part 3 is to consist of one of the following:

  1. A discussion of a third piece from the submitted lists or one movement of a multi-movement piece from the lists: The length of the piece or movement being discussed should be no less than 8-10 minutes. This discussion must form a paper of no less than 2,000 words. Topics may include (but are not limited to) historical perspectives, performance and performance practice issues, instrumental technical issues, the importance or role of the piece in the literature for the student’s instrument, etc. This discussion must be presented as a formal paper with supporting information, including resources, charts, and the like.
    OR
  2. A theoretical analysis of one of the listed pieces or one movement of a multi-movement piece from the lists: The length of the piece or movement being analyzed should be no less than 8-10 minutes. This analysis should address form, basic harmonic events, large-scale phrasing, performance practice issues, etc., as outlined in a rubric provided by the department.

The written project must be submitted to the Department of Instrumental Studies no later than November 1 for an anticipated December graduation or April 1 for an anticipated May graduation. Documents are distributed among the departmental faculty for review and a grade of either “pass” or “fail.” A passing grade from a majority (and no fewer than two) of the department’s graduate faculty members is required. Students who do not pass are told what needs to be fixed (content, grammar, etc.) and, using whatever resources they have (e.g., the University's Writing Center), prepare and submit a revision that receives a passing grade. In order for a student to graduate on schedule, any revision that is required must receive a passing grade before the deadline by which names must be submitted for graduation.

Public Recital:
Performance majors present a public recital as the culminating event for the master's degree (MUSC 8984). Graduation recitals are typically one hour in length; presented on-campus in either Rock Hall or Klein Recital Hall; and adjudicated by two full-time music faculty members. The student must show evidence through Temple University transcript records of having taken private lessons up to the time of the graduation recital. Students who wish to play a recital in the early Fall should plan to register for and complete the final term of lessons during the preceding Summer months.

A Recital Permission Form indicating the private teacher's approval for performance of the graduation recital must be signed by the private teacher and submitted six weeks prior to the recital. (If the recital is in the first five weeks of the Spring term, the form must be submitted two weeks before the end of the Fall term.) If required by the private teacher, a Recital Permission Jury must be scheduled at least four weeks prior to the recital. If the form is not submitted or a required jury is not scheduled, the department reserves the right to cancel or postpone the recital.
