A Message for Hartt Summerterm Masters Students

A Welcome Note from The Music Education Faculty for All Graduate Music Education Students

Dear Hartt Graduate Music Education Students:

We are looking forward to seeing all of you this summer! Please read below.

Newly Matriculated Students

First of all, congratulations on being accepted to the Hartt Masters in Music Education degree program. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to welcome you to campus this summer. To that end I wanted to pass on some information regarding the next steps.

  1. You do not need to register for any classes at this time. I will actually administratively place you in one required course (Research and Writing with Dr. Haston). These two courses are required of all first summer masters students. Registration for all other courses will take place the day after entrance exams.
  2. Entrance exams will take place on June 29. They take place on campus. This is the Saturday directly preceding the start of Summerterm. The schedule for that day will be:

Saturday Schedule

Music History1-3 p.m.
Break3-3:30 p.m.
Music Theory3:30-5:30 p.m.
Dinner provided!5:30-6:30 p.m. (including an Orientation Session)
Ear Training6:30-9:30 p.m.
These exams will take place in the Fuller building (where you interviewed) in room 410.
  1. The History and Theory faculty members will work hard to evaluate the exams that evening into the next morning so that new music education students can meet with Dr. Russell on Sunday June 30th at 2 p.m. in the same building. This meeting will serve as Academic Advising (as we will know what History and Theory courses you should be ready to take).
  2. Information regarding Summerterm housing can be found at: http://harttweb.hartford.edu/summerterm/housing.aspx

Please feel free to send me any additional academic questions you may have. jorussell@hartford.edu I look forward to meeting you all again in just a few weeks.

Returning Graduate Students

Please remember you must register on the Summerterm website rather than the university website.

If you have any questions, contact Dr. Joshua Russell (jorussell@hartford.edu) prior to registering for classes. He will complete an audit to make sure you are enrolled in the correct courses for next summer. Summerterm PINs are individualized and will be issued after advisement with Dr. Russell.

If you are planning to graduate in August, schedule an appointment with Dr. Russell when you arrive for a Commencement Form. He will audit your files with you and sign the form so that you are placed in the University system to graduate.

You will need to complete a Capstone Portfolio prior to graduation. Please find the directions here: Capstone Portfolio and feel free to ask any questions.

We will schedule times to present your portfolios when you arrive.

Dr. Russell

Thank you,
The Music Education Division Faculty
