All music majors at UND must demonstrate proficiency at the piano. This can be fulfilled either through taking the Keyboard Skills courses and/or passing the Piano Proficiency Exams. Bachelor of Arts Music Majors are required to take two semesters of Keyboard Skills (levels I and II), or pass levels I and II of the Piano Proficiency Exam. Bachelor of Music majors (Performance, Therapy, and Music Education) are required to take all four semesters of Keyboard Skills or pass all four levels of the Piano Proficiency Exam. These requirements must be met prior to graduation, or prior to registration for either Student Teaching or Music Therapy internship. The music minor does not include a Piano Proficiency requirement.
Students are encouraged to take any level(s) of the Piano Proficiency Exam if they feel they have the skills to pass out of any level(s) of Keyboard Skills. Students may sign up to take any level(s) of the Piano Proficiency Exam during the first week of classes. New incoming students will also have the opportunity to take the Piano Proficiency Exam on the first Monday of the fall semester during the New Music Major Orientation Day.
Students interested in taking the Piano Proficiency Exam should contact the Music Office (701-777-2644) to set up a time.
