Music Advising

Music Advising

The Department of Music follows University policy with regard to advising practices.

It is the student’s responsibility to follow through with the actual registration of classes and to follow the sequence of courses as listed in the Departmental Sequence sheets.

All music majors are assigned an advisor based up their program of study:

  • BM students are advised by the applied teacher.
  • BME students are advised by music education faculty and/or applied faculty.
  • If you are a double major in the BM and BME – you should go to your BME advising session first, and then follow up with a BM advising as above.
  • BA students are advised by Dr. Fruehwald or applied teacher; your chosen minor is advised by the department of origin.

All students should prepare and bring the following to your advising session:

  1. an updated copy of your degree audit report. Log into the portal and follow these steps:
    1. Choose the “Student” tab
