DIVISION OF MUSIC

GENERAL STATEMENT

The art of music at the University of Florida is expressed through the
Division of Music, which is responsible directly to the President of the Uni-
versity.
The aim of the Division of Music is to provide the members of the student
body with access to music in its recreational, cultural, and vocational aspects.
At the present time the function of the Division is occupied largely with
the recreational phase of music. The faculty of the Division, believing that
music is a factor in cultural life, and that the best of repertoire, ideally, must
be sought for practice and performance, attempts the purposeful teaching of
the beautiful in music in order that a love of the art may be inculcated in
students, who, in the years after graduation, may find a source of happiness
in musical expression. Opportunities for recreation through music are of-
fered students by means of membership in the University Band, the Orchestra,
and the Glee Club.
The Division of Music considers with satisfaction the relatively large ag-
gregate of men who, imbued with some native capacity for and love of
the art of music, have departed from the campus and shared their training in
music with the communities in which they serve in church choirs, h!gh school
musical organizations, and community ensembles. Carefully tested statistics
seem to indicate that since the Great War the most notable advance in music
in this country has been made in the public schools. Opportunities for
leadership in this aspect of education are promised competent men, and in
Florida there are likely to be increased demands for trained directors.

DEGREES

The resources and curricula of the University do not allow opportunity for
any extended study of music in its vocational phases, and no degrees are of-
fered. However, other degrees giving an adequate background are attainable
by students who contemplate entering music as a vocation. Lines in the field
of music are tightening, as in o:her professions; for much success in the prac-
tice of music in future years, backgrounds of extensive preparation are likely
to be necessary. Tradition has built up an acknowledgment that the degrees
of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science signify a broad cultural and
scientific training. In order to secure this background, many students elect
to secure a cultural degree in addition to a specialized degree in music.
Although, as has been stated, professional degrees are not offered in the
Division of Music, there are available many courses which, in addition to pro-
viding cultural background, furnish credits which will probably admit the
student to advanced standing in institutions offering degrees in his specialized
field. Thus, the intending musician in the field of instruments or voice may
find courses in languages, literature, esthetics, speech, mathematics, dramatics,
history, physiology, philosophy, physical education, and psychology, and a few

courses which will give him either knowledge essential in his life's vocation
or else credit units acceptable in certain institutions offering the various de-
grees in music. The prospective teacher of music may secure training in the
essentials in the distinct branch of education or pedagogy.

CREDITS IN MUSIC

Credits in music are allowed students who are registered in the College
of Arts and Sciences, the College of Education, and, under certain conditions,
the College of Engineering. These credits may not exceed two in number.

COURSES

The following courses are offered during the regular session, 1931-1932:

Music 101-102 (a)-Orchestral Music. One credit. Mr. Brown.
Problems of orchestra ensemble, technic, and appreciation. Membership in the
University Orchestra is prerequisite. Attendance is required at rehearsals held on the
stage of the Auditorium Monday and Thursday nights at seven o'clock, and at the
University Convocation, held each Thursday at 11:00 A.M.
Music 101-102 (b)-Voice. Five o'clock, Tuesday, Auditorium Studio.
One credit. Mr. DeBruyn.
During the first semester sight reading is stressed. The movable do system is
used. In the second semester the work deals with the history and appreciation of
music, with special emphasis laid upon the development of choral singing.
During the summer session several courses are offered in materials and
methods, glee club, and the theory of voice building. Private lessons in
voice are also available.

PRIVATE LESSONS

Private lessons in their respective specialties are offered by the members
of the faculty of the Division of Music. These lessons are arranged as follows:
1. Orchestral and band instruments. Mr. Brown
2. Piano, organ, harmony, and counterpoint. Mr. Murphree
3. Voice, including radio broadcasting. Mr. DeBruyn
Lesson periods are arranged at the convenience of the instructor and pupil.
Instructors may be consulted concerning lesson periods and rates.

UNIVERSITY BAND

The Band is the oldest of the musical organizations of the University of
Florida. Membership is recruited from the student body. A certain degree
of technical skill is required for membership, which is selective. The Band
plays at University functions and at major athletic contests held within the
state and usually at one or more of the out-of-State contests. Members of the
University R.O.T.C., the military organization, who are able to demonstrate
acceptable proficiency are allowed to become members of the Band, and, in
part, to work for credit in such capacity. The Band plays at the weekly
dress parades. There is also a drum and bugle corps connected directly with
the military organization.

UNIVERSITY ORCHESTRA

The Universi'y of Florida orchestra is an organization composed of students
and others proficient in instrumental playing. The Orchestra plays at the
weekly convocation. This organization is available to the communities of
Florida for appearances in concert.

UNIVERSITY GLEE CLUB

The University of Florida Glee Club is composed of men enrolled in the
university who are interested in choral singing. The Glee Club makes several
trips through the state, particularly during the second semester. This year
the freshmen in the club have been organized into a freshman glee club, as a
section of the larger organization. Members of the Glee Club are heard
regularly each week over the radio in a broadcast period known as the Uni-
versity Hour.
RADIO STATION

The State Radio Station, WRUF, is located on the campus of the Uni-
versity. The station always welcomes capable talent, and holds auditions
weekly. Through the facilities of WRUF, which reaches a large area of the
United States, student musicians find a channel for performance which has
few superiors in this country. Since radio broadcasting is likely to undergo
considerable development in future years, the technic developed at the local
station may later be of great benefit to the student intending music as a pro-
fession. Details regarding radio broadcasting may be secured by writing to
Major Garland Powell, Director of WRUF.

ANDERSON MEMORIAL ORGAN

The Andrew Anderson Memorial Organ was installed in the University
Auditorium in the spring of 1925, being first used at the commencement
exercises of that year. It was the gift of the late Dr. Andrew Anderson, of
St. Augustine, Florida.
This instrument, one of the largest and finest in the South, was built by
the Skinner Company, of Boston, Massachusetts. It contains 4,101 pipes,
distributed among 75 stops, not including the harp and chimes. There are
four manuals at the console, with the Echo (of five stops) playable from the
top keyboard.
Since the installation of the State Radio Station, in 1928, the organ has
been heard daily in broadcast programs. The University Organist, Claude
L. Murphree, gives recitals on alternate Sunday afternoons during the winter
semesters and on each Sunday afternoon during the summer session. Fre-
quently guest artis's, instrumentalists, and vocalists appear on these programs.
