The prerequisite for a Performance: Primary course is the Performance: Primary course in the same medium at the previous year level. Students must attain 65% or better in Performance: Primary I to go on to Performance: Primary II. Only one Performance: Primary course may be taken in any one academic year. Only one Performance: Secondary course may be taken in any one academic year.

Non­music students enrolled in Performance: Secondary I must complete the co­requisite Rudiments of Music 1310. This requirement may be waived if the student successfully completes a challenge exam, to be administered periodically throughout the year. Consult the Department for further information.

All music students must participate in the Chamber Ensemble or Wind Ensemble for a minimum of two years and maximum of three years.
