  • EM tests are given only during the first week of classes in every semester.

  • An EM test is equivalent to the final exam for a course.

  • Students must pass all parts of the test.

  • Students may take an EM test for each level only once.

  • Students who do not pass the EM test must take the course.

  • It is not necessary to be enrolled in a course in order to take the test for that level.

  • Students who are enrolled in a course and pass the EM test must drop the course.

  • Students are encouraged to complete the class piano requirement as soon as possible.

  • There are four levels of class piano. Students are encouraged to carefully review their curriculum with an academic advisor to determine which courses are required for their degree program.

  • Contact Dr. Kenneth Williams if you have questions regarding class piano.
