A music preliminary course will be introduced in 1970 for "those students who are a bit shaky on their harmony," said the head of the Music Department. Professor Page.
Stage one classes are to be divided into two groups: one which will do a one-year course suitable for a B.A. and another group for those who wish to take a Music Degree.
In the case of those students proposing to major in music, some sweeping changes are to be introduced.
Such students will study composition from "Adam's first cry to 1970", said Professor Page.
They will not sit examinations in any compositional subjects but will be required to complete regular assignments to a satisfactory standard.
Two new subjects are to be introduced: ancient and oriental music and music education.
Professor Page also pointed out that any student taking any degree may take a music performance course.
