Piano Placement Exam

Every music major and minor must demonstrate a proficiency in piano before graduation as part of their chosen degree program. There are 4 semesters in the sequence.  Students with 2-4 years of previous piano experience may choose to take the piano placement exam in order to determine which semester is appropriate.  Those with little or no previous keyboard experience will be assigned to the beginning piano class.
