Post Electives - arts - filling out the Kolbe book form Reply with quote
So I have a son taking piano lessons, in a chamber group, and accompanying a piece in an orchestra, and playing organ for choir rehearsals and learning a piece for a piano competition... and a bunch of other musical things... Do I write down each piece of music on the book form... or how do I handle this?

Thanks.

Hi Ame,

This depends. It sounds like he is heavily involved with Music... to the extent that it might warrant more than just 5 fine arts credit for the year. So, it depends on how you would like it to show on his transcript for college. I wouldn't give separate credit for each individual thing, but maybe group them together. "Music: Piano and Organ" could qualify as one course with a P/F grade. This would include his lessons, competition, and organ for choir. Then do a "Music: Chamber Group/Orchestra" as a separate course with a P/F grade. Each one would receive a total of 5 credits per year (or 1.25 per quarter). Since he's so musically oriented, he'll be done with his fine arts credit for the Magna diploma after 9th grade, but that doesn't mean he should stop! You can continue reporting courses even if they aren't needed for credit on a diploma.

Megan
