* Competently means few or no mistakes, e.g. a 4-bar phrase may have one careless mistake. Competently also means in tune.

If a performance is of questionable quality, you may attempt that item again later in the semester.

If you score 100 before the semester is finished, you may perform Reciting Rhythms and Conducting I, Sight Singing I, 2-handed Tapping I, or begin Memorized Singing II.
