The University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance educates the artists, scholars, educators and entrepreneurs of the future. Students are prepared with expert skills, instilled with passionate enthusiasm, and emboldened to challenge and inspire the world through the power of the performing arts.
Melody Racine, senior associate dean for academic, faculty, and student affairs at SMTD will step in as interim dean of the school, effective Aug. 16.
SMTD has partnered with the Gershwin family to bring the music of George and Ira Gershwin to students, scholars, performers and audiences across campus and worldwide.
Recital Approval Juries
Before presenting a degree recital (other than in DMA), the student has to pass a recital approval jury. This jury takes place between 10 and 14 days prior to the scheduled recital date. During 30 minutes, the student will have to play excerpts from the entire recital program as chosen by three present String faculty members, including the student's teacher. It is up to the student to contact prof. Yizhk Schotten well ahead of this time frame and request that a recital approval be scheduled. At the end of the jury, a Recital Approval Jury form must be signed by all three faculty members and submitted to the Chair by the student's teacher.
