Music Coordinator Courses

 
 
 

Dr. Zeller is Coordinator of the Division of Music within the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Clayton State University.  Among other things, this means that he is the instructor of record for a number of marker courses (including Recital Attendance, Junior Recital, Senior Recital, and Music Capstone) that are required for all or for certain Music major curricula.  (Most of these courses are zero-credit courses, although Music Capstone carries three credits.)  He may or may not be the faculty member who actually supervises student work in these courses, but he writes the syllabi and reports course grades as they are turned in to him by the appropriate faculty committees.  Syllabi for each of these courses can be found on this page--see below.

 
 
 

MUSC 0890 Recital Attendance

 
 
 

MUSC 0890 is a zero-credit course that monitors the attendance of Music majors and minors at Division of Music recitals and other required events.  Each semester, students must attend at least 14 events chosen from Division of Music Music Convo events (currently scheduled on Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m.), Spivey Hall performances, or other events from an approved list.  The number of required semesters of Recital Attendance varies by the specific Music major or minor curriculum the student is following, but all Music curricula require multiple semesters of MUSC 0890.

MUSC 3890 Junior Recital

 
 
 

MUSC 3890 Junior Recital is a zero-credit marker course that documents a student's completion of the half-recital requirement in the Music Education curriculum of the Bachelor of Performing Arts degree and in all the former Bachelor of Music degree curricula.  The student's junior recital will be overseen by the student's applied instructor, and the grade of Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory will be awarded by an examination committee consisting of three Division of Music faculty members.

MUSC 4890 Senior Recital

 
 
 
MUSC 4890 Senior Recital is a zero-credit marker course that documents a student's completion of the final recital requirement that was the capstone experience of the Performance concentration of the former Bachelor of Music degree.  The student's senior recital will be overseen by the student's applied instructor, and the grade of Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory will be awarded by an examination committee consisting of three Division of Music faculty members.  This course is no longer being offered on a regular basis.

MUSC 4990 Music Capstone

 
 
 

MUSC 4990 Music Capstone is the course that documents a student's completion of the required senior capstone experience for students in the Music curriculum of the Bachelor of Arts in Performing Arts degree (and served a similar purpose in the former Bachelor of Arts in Music degree).  Various types of capstone experiences are acceptable to fulfill the requirement, although all require a significant amount of writing.  Although Dr. Zeller writes the syllabus and reports the grades as determined by the applicable faculty committee, each capstone is overseen and evaluated by a committee of three faculty members, most usually chaired by the student's applied teacher or academic advisor.  The committee is responsible for determining the capstone grade. 

Students must write proposals for their capstone projects, recruit their faculty committees, and have their proposals approved by the Division of Music faculty in the semester before they enroll in MUSC 4990 Music Capstone, so planning for a capstone project should commence several semesters before the project actually takes place!
