Attendance

Students must attend all class meetings, rehearsals and performances on a timely basis, barring illness or family emergency. Chronic tardiness or failure to attend class regularly may adversely affect student grades; please see individual class syllabi for attendance policies specific to each course.

Students missing 15% or more of class time per course, per semester, may be dropped from the course by the instructor with approval from the Dean of Instruction (a “mandatory drop”). In the case of a mandatory drop, academic and financial penalties will apply (see Cancellations, Withdrawals and Refunds and Adding, Dropping and Withdrawing from Courses) as of the date of the requested mandatory drop, which shall be submitted in writing to the Dean of Instruction for approval.

The Word

“John Gove is an incredible professor with extensive knowledge in jazz theory. He teaches theory how it should be taught, which is direct application to your instrument in a playing context. I’ve never taken a better theory class with such a fine professor.”
