South Texas College maintains an open enrollment policy. No audition is required to join the STC Brass Studio.
However, prospective students are strongly encouraged to get in touch with Dr. Coy prior to enrolling for classes. There are three reasons for this:
- The music curriculum is slightly different from that of other academic programs at STC; music faculty can help advise students as they select the proper classes for their schedules.
- Knowing who will be playing in the brass ensemble gives the instructor an opportunity to select music before the semester begins, which maximizes the amount of rehearsal time available to prepare for performances.
- Unlike traditional lecture courses, music instruction relies on a one-on-one personal relationship. Establishing open and clear communication between the instructor and the student prepares for the best possible learning environment.
