MUSC 405 (Elementary Instrumental Methods) and MUSC 406 (Elementary Instrumental Practicum) are no longer offered. These courses have been replaced by MUSC 401 (Elementary Vocal and General Methods) and MUSC 402 (Elementary Vocal and General Practicum) instead. This is in order to align with Virginia Department of Education licensing standards for the Bachelor of Music, Music Education degree, as all graduates are qualified to teach general music in Virginia (NOTE: the elementary instrumental material has been moved to MUSC 407). Students that have already completed MUSC 405 and MUSC 406 are not required to complete MUSC 401 and 402.
