Senior Projects and Student Recitals

Students enrolled in MST 496 Senior Project have their choice of completing a major project in music research, analysis, composition, or performance.  Please see the guidelines for senior projects regarding expectations.

Students performing a senior recital should book the Recital Hall at the start of the semester and confirm their booking with both Darina Bejtja and Karl Watson to ensure availability of both the hall and any required equipment. Please see this Checklist for Recitals to be sure you are prepared for your event.

Those choosing the exam should contact Dr. Molly Morkoski through the Departmental office at (718) 960-8247. Please click here for details on the Piano Proficiency Exam.
