A placement examination in keyboard skills determines the student's placement in the Class Study in Piano courses. Students with a concentration in piano or organ do not take Class Study in Piano. Students not required to take four semesters of class piano will take additional elective credits.


ENGL 150 requires concurrent enrollment in LIB 160.

The BM degree requires a minimum of 124.5 credits, including a minimum of 45 credits at the 300/400 level. The LAS World Language requirements must be met. Courses which may be used for the General Education Requirements can be found at: ( All ISU students must complete a three-credit course in U.S. diversity and a three-credit course in international perspectives (which is satisfied with MUSIC 383).
